This is the only Filipino recipe that I have gotten the "Wow, just like Moms!" This is a very simple and easy way to spice up your rice. You can substitute Garlic Rice for plain white rice in most Filipino recipes that call to be served with rice.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 and 1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 and 1/2 garlic salt
4 cups cooked white rice (not minute rice)
Ground pepper to taste
Heat oil on medium high heat in a skillet. Add garlic and cook until golden brown. Do NOT allow garlic to burn.
Stir in cooked rice and sprinkle with garlic salt. Continue stirring and "frying" rice until it's nicely coated and starts to look glassy. Season with pepper and serve immediately.
