A Simple Way to Enjoy a Taste of the East

Pork fried ricePork fried rice is a Chinese classic. You can make it right in your own home with a handful of ingredients. But when you are ready to enjoy pork fried rice as an entrée or side dish, start out by slicing up half a green onion and chopping 1/2 cup of fresh celery.



In a sauté pan on low heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil first and then add and sauté the onion, celery and one can of pork. The onions will start to shrink and caramelize and the pork will heat up and become easier to mix. With a wooden spoon, stir the ingredient so they are equally cooked and thoroughly mixed together in the pan.



Still on low heat, add 4 cups of cooked brown or white rice to the sauté pan along with 1 raw, beaten egg. Fold the egg into the mixture until it is completely cooked. Since the rice is already cooked, it just needs to be evenly dispersed throughout the pan. After all the ingredients are well mixed, add salt and paper to taste.



Then the final ingredient to add is 3 tablespoons of soy sauce. Continue to cook the pork fried rice for another 3-5 minutes until completely heated. Fresh garlic and/or cayenne pepper can also be added at this step depending on the preference of the cook or guests. This recipe makes 3 entrée portions or 6-8 side portions. Leftovers can be stored in Tupperware container and reheated in the microwave.
