MiMi's Pork Fried Rice

    Happy Chinese New Year!  You don't celebrate the Chinese New Year?  Well, you should make fried rice anyway!   This isn't the traditional way of making fried rice with leftover rice and a wok, but it is good and this recipe is easy.  It starts with uncooked rice, so there isn't much prep work.  MiMi makes this whenever she is making a Chinese food dinner and it is always a hit.

Pork Fried Rice


2 thin cut boneless pork chops
2 T soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 T cooking oil
1 cup long grain rice (uncooked)
2 cups chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
1 12oz bag frozen mixed vegetables
2 eggs, beaten
More soy sauce and chopped green onions for serving

  1. Mix together soy sauce, garlic powder and pepper.  Cut the pork chops into very small pieces and soak in the soy sauce marinade.
  2. Meanwhile heat a skillet and the oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and saute until they begin to soften.
  3. Add pork and soy sauce mixture and cook until pork is cooked through.
  4. Put rice in skillet, stir and let toast slightly.  Pour in broth, cover and reduce heat to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Stir in the mixed vegetables and cook until softened.  
  6. Push the rice to the edges of the skillet and pour the eggs into the center.  Once they are set, stir them into the eggs.
  7. Add more soy sauce to taste and top with green onions

Here is the fried rice served with baked crab ragoon egg rolls and oriental mushrooms.

Mimi also made some fortune cookies out of Fruit Roll-ups.  Aren't they adorable?  Happy year of the sheep everyone!
