Fried Rice

I absolutely love fried rice! I used to have to wait until I could go to a Chinese restaurant to enjoy this lovely dish, but lately I’ve been making it at home! If you love fried rice, but don’t know how to make it, continue reading!

 

 

You Need:

Cooked Rice

Small Cubed Up Pork

Soy Sauce

Terriyaki Sauce

Eggs

Onions

Oil (Sesame Oil & Olive Oil)

Salt, Pepper, Garlic, & Ginger

 

I don’t have any exact measurements, so you’ll have to do a little experimentation on your own! Plus, this leaves plenty of room for you to figure out what YOU like.

Directions

Warm a little bit of Sesame Oil in a pan. Test to see if oil is ready by sprinkling a little bit of water into pan. If it pops and makes all kinds of noise, your oil is warm enough.

Add cubed up pork to pan and season with salt, pepper, garlic, and a bit of ginger. Add teriyaki sauce to pork a couple times while cooking. Once thoroughly cooked, set aside.

Add olive oil to pan. Wait until oil is heated.  Put egg(s) into pan. Allow 5 – 10 seconds for eggs to begin to fry and then begin to break up the eggs (like you may do for scrambled eggs). Cook thoroughly and set aside.

Next, cut onion into small squares (you could also do strips, it’s up to you). Cook onion in pan and set aside.

*NOTE* More often than not, I cook the egg and onion in the same pan. I just use one side of pan for egg and the other side for onions. You may or may not be able to do this due to pan size. *END NOTE*

Add olive oil to pan and wait for it to heat up. Add all of the cooked rice to pan.

Coat rice in soy sauce and mix until the rice has a yellow/golden hue.

Mix in egg, pork, and onion that you cooked previously.

Once thoroughly heated, serve immediately!

*TIP* Warming up rice can result in crunchy, yucky, morsels. Next time you need to warm up rise, put a slice of bread over the rice when microwaving! This will keep your rice moist and delicious *END TIP*
