I love Chinese-style fried rice, and whenever I have leftover meat or rice in my fridge I like to stir fry it and make friend rice. The best thing about fried rice, is that it doesn’t matter what kind of meat you have, as long as you have eggs and onions (staples in my house) you are good to go! As this recipe can be edited multiple ways, I’ll add comments where you can edit it to your choosing.
** In this recipe I choose to use the roasted pork belly that I had made earlier in the week, the best part about this dish is that you make it with leftovers that you already have in the fridge and on hand. **
- 1c chopped pork belly, see recipe here –> you can really use any meat you want, just as long as its seasoned with Asian-esque (think sesame oil, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce…you get the idea)
- 1 medium sized onion, chopped
- 2 green onions, chopped (white and green part)
- 3c cooked jasmine rice, the recipe will taste better if you use rice that is a day or two old
- 3 eggs scrambled
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1/2 package of fried rice seasoning (I like to use this Kikkoman one, click here)
- 1/2 tbsp onion powder
- 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp pepper
- In a heated wok, add the olive oil and cook the onion for approximately five minutes, add garlic and cook for another 5-10 minutes or until the onions and garlic are translucent and soft, but not browned.
- To the same wok, add the cooked rice, green onions and meat, and stir-fry until the rice and meat are heated through.
- Season the rice mixture with the garlic powder, onion powered, pepper, soy sauce and sesame oil; stir until combined thouroughly. Taste and if necessary add more soy sauce, or seasoning.
- Add the scrambled egg over the rice, and stir until cooked thouroughly.
