It just figures that our Korean exchange student would rather eat burgers than rice. Only took me a week and a half of loading up my new rice cooker twice a day to figure out that he'd rather eat potatoes....
This is the perfect dish to use up leftover rice and whatever else is hanging around the fridge.
Pork Fried Rice
1/4 cup peanut or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon seasame oil
2 cups slivered white onions
fresh ground pepper
4 eggs, well beaten
4 scallions, roughly chopped
1 cup frozen peas, rinsed to thaw
1 cup minced cooked broccoli or other vegetable
1 cup thinly sliced roast pork
6 cups cooked rice
1 cup bean sprouts, fresh if possible, well drained if from a can
1/4 cup soy sauce, plus more to taste
Heat the oils in a large skillet until shimmery. Add the onions and cook until the onions are wilted and limp but not brown.
Push the onions to the side and add the eggs. Cook until firm, breaking up into small bits as you go.
Add the scallions, peas, broccoli and pork and saute for a minute to warm and combine flavors.
Add the rice and bean sprouts and saute for another minute or two.
Add the soy sauce and toss to coat evenly.
Serve to 6-8 hungry people.
