Pork fried rice is a popular dish to be sure. But the stuff you get in restaurants is a stroke in a bowl. Not very appetizing if you ask me.

While this dish will always be a little high on the sodium scale, homemade and clean is the only way to go if you just cannot live without it.

The essence of this dish lays in its versatility. This is really a “left-over” dish. So save yourself some work and wait until you have some cold, cooked pork and brown rice in the fridge that you need to use up. This recipe is perfect for that occasion.

But making it from scratch (like I did) is not so bad either. Top with a little soy sauce and you’ve got a wonderful dinner!

If you love regular pork fried rice from your local Chinese restaurant, give this homemade version a try. It’s a yummy way to use up leftovers too!
Note that if you are trying to keep the fat content low, keep some chicken broth at hand to continue cooking when the oil runs out. Or use just chicken broth for cooking. If you don’t mind more fat, then use more oil as needed for cooking.

  5. Let me just start by saying that I made many changes to this recipe, based on what I had on hand (chicken, not pork; button mushrooms, not portobello; beef stock, not chicken; etc etc!). Turned out GREAT! I usually follow recipes to a T, but your recipes are so simple….simple ingredients, simple steps….so even if I mess up by changing it up, I feel as tho I haven’t “wasted” too many ingredients or too much valuable time. So thank you for your clean and simple recipes – I can’t wait to try more!!
