Step by Step Pork and Egg Fried Rice

Step by step, how to make fried rice.

Step by Step Pork and Egg Fried Rice

Fried rice is perfect for using up leftovers - that leftover rice and that tail end bit of a leftover pork roast, though any leftover meat will do. Shredded beef roast, sliced steak, chopped chicken and even shrimp work well too, so be sure to save any leftover meat you have and stick it in the freezer to save for this dish.

It's also great with raw boneless, skinless chicken breast meat or tenders too, though if you're using raw meat of any kind, add it at the beginning to cook it through. If it's already cooked and you only want to warm it over and not really cook it further, wait to add it until near the end when you add the rice, peas and veggies.

As is common to most stir-fry dishes this moves fast, so mise en place y'all - meaning prep everything first and have it at the ready before you start. You'll need peanut oil if you have that - canola or vegetable oil if not. I like to use peanut oil because it has a very high smoke point and for a proper stir fry or, in this case, fried rice you need that oil very hot and things moving. You'll want about leftover, cubed pork, chopped onion, carrots and celery, chopped garlic, 3 cups leftover rice, chopped pimento or roasted, red pepper, frozen thawed peas, sliced green onion, 2 beaten eggs, soy sauce and brown sugar.


Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a heavy bottomed skillet or wok over high heat. Add the onion, carrot and celery and stir fry for 4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir fry for one minute longer; remove and set aside.


Add half of the remaining oil to the skillet, pour in eggs and stir until set. Remove and set aside with the veggies.


I've since revised this to cook the rice first so that it's more fried, so add a little more oil to the pan, add the rice, stir fry it, then add the pork.


Return veggie and egg mixture to skillet, stir and add the peas, pimentos or peppers and green onion.


Continue to stir fry for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the blended soy sauce and brown sugar. Add to the skillet and cook an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.


Taste and add salt and pepper as desired. Serve and enjoy!
