Of Food and Love recipes: pork fried rice
by Mommy Hobbies
In my napsack stash
First, I must apologize for the post about my step-mom’s passing. She passed two years ago and I wrote it at the time. I am trying to organize all of my posts and it was posted accidentally. I am trying to figure out a way to make it file away in the proper month, date and year. So sorry.
But on to the good stuff! We made fried rice last night. It was the main course. No soups, side salads or meat dishes. Just the delicious rice with egg rolls.
Remember how I was ranting about the “three or four ingredient recipes” that I have in my archives? This is another one. There are more than four ingredients but it feels like I’m only doing two or three things to make this fabulously delumpcious. There are three MAIN ingredients.
I usually freeze my bacon. I buy a lot when it’s on sale and save the rest for a rainy day or a tight month. We don’t eat bacon as much as we used it. It’s still really, really good and as unhealthy as ever.
Pork Fried Rice (courtesy of Tasty Kitchen )
- 1 cup Dry Rice, Prepared And Cooled
- 1 pound Bacon *I modified this to only a half pound because it was just too much for our preference.*
- 2 whole Eggs
- 1 cup Frozen Peas And Carrots
- 4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce *I tend to only put in 3 1/2 Tbl*
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
Cut the bacon into small pieces before frying. Fry bacon on medium high heat. After cooked, discard most of the grease, saving about 1 Tablespoon of grease in pan.
Scramble the eggs in separate bowl. Move bacon to the sides of the pan. Pour the eggs into the middle of the pan. Scramble and cook eggs.
Add cooled rice and frozen peas and carrots and soy sauce to taste – enough to give it some color. Sprinkle in garlic powder. Keep frying and stir occasionally until heated through.
