      Pretty Good even though on the bland side. I used peanut oil which I’d recommend as important for added flavor unless you want a very bland result. As described, this was a quick and easy recipe. I’m not sure I’ll rush to make it again, but it’s one to bookmark for a meal that takes under 30 minutes, especially if you start the rice when you start the prep. We liked sweet chili sauce as a condiment with it rather than sambal olek (tried both) but that’s just our personal preference.
