Heat the olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over high heat until just beginning to smoke, about 2 minutes. Add the onions, bell peppers, garlic, ginger and Magic Seasoning Blend and cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Add the marinade and cook, stirring frequently, until the liquid has almost totally evaporated, about 4 minutes. Add the butter and cook until the butter has melted and the mixture has darkened slightly, about 1 minute.
Add the rice and toss until evenly coated. Continue to cook the rice, tossing frequently and scraping the bottom to prevent sticking.
Add the sesame oil and heat the rice until it is hot and glossy, about 4 minutes.
Remove from heat.


  1. This recipe produces a robust and flavorful fried rice.  For a lighter flavor, reduce the amount of marinade called for in the recipe.
  2. For extra flavor, add 1 tablespoon of marinade to the skillet just before removing from heat.
  3. Add more sesame oil for a stronger sesame flavor.
