The other day I purposely made extra Rice Pilaf since the hubby & kiddos like it but I guess I made a bit too much. First leftover chicken and now leftover rice pilaf! I could just serve it alongside a regular meal this week but that’s kind of boring…instead I decided to season some pork and making a yummy Pork Fried Rice. So easy and tasty. And a great way to use up any left over rice!
Pork Fried Rice
4 boneless pork chops, diced
1/2 teaspoon Chinese Five Spices
4 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
salt & pepper
2-3 cups leftover Rice Pilaf (or any leftover rice)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Season pork with Chinese Five Spices, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, salt & pepper. Allow to marinate while stir-frying the cooked rice. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium-high heat. When it’s nice and hot add the cooked rice. Allow the rice to stir-fry about 15-20 minutes until nice and crispy.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil in another sauté pan on medium-high heat. Add the diced pork and stir-fry a few minutes until pork is cooked. In a small bowl, crack the eggs and whisk with 2 tablespoons water. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cooked pork and pan juices to the crispy rice. Stir in the egg and remaining soy sauce and cook until egg is scrambled. Serve with more soy sauce if desired.
