- Pour eggs over rice mixture.
- Cover. Cook on High for 45 more minutes or until egg is set.

Optional: For Non-Vegetarians add cooked chicken, beef or shrimp with step #3, if you like meat in your Fried Rice for a main meal!
IMPORTANT TIP: Browning the rice helps keep it from turning gummy!

I can’t find the soup mix sweet and sour. Is that a liquid or a dry mix? What can I substitute it with?
Brittany you should find it at your local grocery store. It is a dry mix, as it is only 1.3 oz., like a dry onion soup mix. If you are unable to find it I would use a dry ranch or onion soup mix???? Thanks for the question!
Can you substitute brown rice?
Absolutely Sara! Happy Crocking!
this isn’t vegetarian if you use Chicken Broth!
Browning the rice, after its done?
Elaine, you sauté the rice with the garlic before you put it in the slow cooker. Enjoy and Happy Crocking! 🙂
Could you saute the rice in the crockpot (on high)?
Irene it will not get hot enough for you to sauté the rice. Unless you have a slow cooker you can use on the stove, as there are some on the market that you can. Thanks for the question, and Happy Crocking!
Can I leave this in for more than the final two hours?
How many servings does this make?
