Pork Fried Rice Recipe


Pork fried rice is a staple of Chinese-American cuisine. It can be found at all buffets, Chinese restaurants, and take-out places. No Chinese meal would be complete without fried rice. If you have been following this blog you know I have posted several fried rice recipes, and this is probably the most simplistic of the bunch. It is very simple, and yet delicious. It is very important to use leftover rice that is at least one day old. Like fried rice should be, you should add ingredients such a soy sauce and garlic to your taste. You can use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder if you choose. Some other great additions would be a little rice wine and oyster sauce. To save time you can use leftover pork if you desire. Enjoy.

Sana - Yes, 8 hours will be fine. I have even made the fresh fresh and done it before, it will just be messier.

Can I cook the rice before a couple of hours (8 hours ) instead of 1 day?
