Fried Rice with Pork

Recipe Notes

• Leftover, cold rice makes a better texture than freshly cooked warm rice.

• Substitute 1 cup cooked or canned pork. Add with the vegetables.

• Mix ½ teaspoon sesame oil or some ginger powder with the soy sauce.

• Add sliced green onions or bite-sized pineapple (fresh, frozen, or canned).

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons
low-sodium soy sauce
1⁄2 teaspoon
garlic powder
1 teaspoon
black pepper
1⁄2 pound
lean pork, ground or small cubes
1 teaspoon
oil
1⁄4 cup
carrot, sliced or grated
1 cup
onion, chopped
1 cup
chopped vegetables, fresh, frozen or leftovers (try broccoli, celery, bell pepper, peas or snow peas)
2 cups
cooled, cooked rice, white or brown

Directions

1. Mix soy sauce, garlic powder and pepper together in a small dish. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté pork in oil until just lightly browned. If using ground pork, break into crumbles as it cooks.

3. Add carrots, onion, and chosen vegetables. Sauté until tender, stirring frequently.

4. Stir in rice and seasoning mixture, breaking up any clumps of rice. Continue to heat and stir until heated through.

5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

My family enjoys this recipe and it is easy to adapt for what you have on hand.  This week I had leftover brown jasmine rice and just a bit of leftover pork roast so I added scambled egg to the dish for a little more protein. I used two cloves of fresh garlic (instead of the powder), fresh ginger, 3/4 tsp sesame oil (add at the end) and a mix of fresh and frozen veggies. I sautéd the fresh carrot and onion a bit before adding the frozen veggies. 

I made this dish for dinner last night and will definitely make it again. The ingredients seem to be very flexible so that I'll be able to use whatever I have on hand and know that we'll like it! It was also very simple to make. I used rotisserie chicken (because I had some frozen), onion, frozen brocolli and bell pepper. I took the suggestion to add a bit of sesame oil and ginger. We used a combination of brown and white rice. I can't wait to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
