I love to order pork fried rice when I go to my favorite Chinese restaurant. It comes at the table sizzling hot and smelling wonderful. After getting tired of going to the restaurant each time, I experimented in my kitchen and got something quite similar. This is my home made version of pork fried rice.
You will need:
1 cup long grain rice
1 chunk of pork diced
1/2 cup of shredded lettuce
2 Tablespoons peas
1 onion diced
Salt, pepper to taste
I like to rinse the raw rice so to take the excess starch off. Then I saute’ it a bit until light brown and then add salted water to boil being careful to not over cook it. In the mean while in a frying pan I saute’ in oil the onion and pork and put it aside. Once rice is ready I put it on a rack to cool.In the same frying pan where the pork and onion were sauteed I add the shredded lettuce and peas and saute adding a bit of oil, salt and pepper.
Once wilted a bit, I remove from pan. Now the rice gets to fry in the pan with some oil.
I then add the pork, onion, lettuce and peas and sizzle with the rice. Finally, I mix the two eggs and add to rice allowing it to further sizzle. Once the eggs settle and incorporate nicely with the rice, I serve it on a dish.
Some people like to add soy sauce to their fried rice, but oddly I like to mix in some sweet and sour sauce. Add, simply what you think is best, this dish is already flavorful enough on its own.
