Yesterday I shared my favorite recipe for slow cooker pork tenderloin. As I stated, whenever I make any type of white rice, I double the amount I need. Today I'm going to show you what I do with the leftovers...
A couple of days later, I took out the leftover rice and pork and threw it in a skillet with a little oil, some salt & pepper, onion & garlic powders, soy sauce and egg and voila! Pork Fried Rice!
Pork Fried Rice
2 cups cold cooked rice, straight out of the fridge
Pork, chopped, (leftover chicken or steak works well also)
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
Chopped veggies (carrots, corn, bell pepper, onion, etc)
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a very hot skillet or wok. Saute the vegetable and the meat until veggies are soft and meat is heated through. Add rice and stir fry well. Make a large well in the center of the rice mixture by pushing the rice to the sides of the pan. Pour the beaten eggs, one at a time, into the center well and scramble continuously. Once cooked, incorporate into the rice and repeat for the second egg. Turn heat to low, stir in soy sauce then remove from heat.
I realize that it would look much prettier with some colorful veggies, but then my family wouldn't eat it and that would kind of defeat the purpose. So, I serve a salad on the side.
Two meals, one great recipe!
