Every time we go to our favorite restaurant I take notes on how they fry up the rice, meat, veggies, etc. They keep the pan HOT, use only soy sauce to season, and cook everything quickly to sear the outside and keep the inside tender. Got it. But they don’t divulge the ingredients for the Yum Yum sauce which really makes the meal.
I found this recipe several years ago and IT. IS. SPOT. ON. We can’t eat fried rice without it now!
Homemade Yum Yum Sauce
- 1-1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup water

- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
*Do not use light mayo.
*Make sure to refrigerate at least 8 hours.
