Fried Rice

Naturally, this lead to me looking for a recipe so I could prepare it myself.  And we weren’t disappointed.  We were both really happy with the outcome.

Not only is it cheaper, but there’s always leftovers! The rice is sticky and cooked to perfection.  And when we reheat it the next day, it’s still moist and tasty.  Even the pork.

This recipe doesn’t call for pork.  It’s just a basic fried rice recipe.  However, you can add any kind of cooked meat that you like.  Beef, chicken, pork, shrimp.  Master and I have only used pork so far.

I use 3-4 boneless chops when I add pork but you can use more or less depending on how you like it.  I trim the fat and dice the pork into small pieces. Then I season it with a little Emeril’s Essence and fry it in two tablespoons peanut or sesame oil, depending on the flavor I’m looking for, and about a teaspoon soy sauce.  It usually comes out tender, moist and tasty.
