Pork Fried Rice

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that the past two evenings we’ve had Asian dishes for dinner.  Preston and I are huge Asian food fans for many reasons.  Many dishes are very healthy, delicious, and packed with nutrition.  Monday evening we made a classic dish, Pork Fried Rice, and it was too good to not share with all of you.

pork fried rice


2 pork chops, cut into bite size cubes
1 cup of uncooked brown rice, cooked according to package directions
½ cup broccoli, chopped
½ cup carrots, finely chopped
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 can bean sprouts
½ cup frozen peas
3 scallions, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tbl minced ginger
2 eggs
2 tbl olive oil
2 tbl low sodium soy sauce
1 tbl rice vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
Sea salt and pepper to taste


1.  In a wok, heat the oil.  Add pork, vegetables (all but scallions), garlic, and giner, and cook until pork is fully cooked and vegetables are fully heated, about 10-12 minutes.
2.  While pork and vegetables are cooking, scramble the eggs and cook in a separate pan.
3.  Once pork and vegetables are fully cooked, add scrambled eggs, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil, and season with sea salt and pepper.  Let cook about 5 minutes.
4.  Stir in rice and garnish with chopped scallion.

    We are huge fans of Asian food but usually I don’t make it at home. Tom would love the pork fried rice, so I just might have to try this in my electric skillet. I tried something new last night with a Spiralizer and made zucchini noodles and a stir fry. It was yummy!

  2. After seeing the pic on Instagram I was hoping you’d post the recipe! Looks delicious! We normally do Asian take-out, but Chinese food is my favorite (I usually get chicken and broccoli)

    I love Chinese food but haven’t found a good place since I moved to Dallas. We had a GREAT place in MA and I was spoiled.

  4. We usually order this kind of stuff out. My mom makes a great stir fry with sweet n sour chicken we all like though. I should try to make that some day!

    Yum, I love making fried rice at home! I usually make extra rice from something else in the week and use the left overs for the fried rice so it is pretty quick too.

  6. Sun says:

    Yum – this dish looks amazing! I love pork fried rice but have never tried making it at home. My favorite Asian dish is probably steamed potstickers. Although I usually just order them at a restaurant. Maybe someday I’ll work up to making them myself 🙂

  7. Marcia says:

    Yum! Love me some fried rice. I’m also a fan of beef & broccoli.

  8. Elle says:

    My husband really likes fried rice too. He puts green peas in his!

  9. Girl I LOVE pork fried rice!!!!

  10. This looks so good! I’ve never tried to make fried rice but I love to order it, so I’ll have to save this recipe!

    This looks so good, and definitely fits in with my ongoing “cook in bulk” for the week theme. My favorite Asian dish is pad Thai-the spicier the better!

  12. Erica G says:

    That looks wonderful. I need to give fried rice another chance and may try this minus the pork.

  13. I really rarely eat Asian–my husband isn’t a fan, but I love fried rice and chicken teriayki. (sp?)

  14. I’m not a huge fan of fried rice, but this does look good. I’m more of a Thai food eater – anything curry and I’m happy.

    Ooooh this sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :

  16. I made up my own fried rice recipe at Christmas for leftover turkey and it was quite tasty.
    I prefer Thai or Indian to Chinese if I’m making it at home. I love coconut rice 🙂

  17. This sounds super delicious (minus the pork, I am a vegetarian) 🙂 I just bought some ginger yesterday, so I think I will have to make something like this for dinner next week. We did a quick stir fry last week, but I was rushing so badly I didn’t bother to season it very well. Thanks for sharing!

    We love fried rice over here- and this is easy to sub out the meat for something vegetarian for my daughter and I 🙂

  19. I’ve always wanted to make my own fried rice but just have not gotten around to it. #lazy lol this looks delicious though! I’m usually not a fan of pork but my mom made some delicious pork tonight so I might have to steal her recipe and make this with it as well!

  20. I LOOOOOVE fried rice…but I’m a vegetarian. Do you think the recipe could still be made, without adding the pork?

  21. jillconyers says:

    My daughter loves fried rice. I don’t think she’s ever tried pork. I’m going to ask her if she wants me to make this 🙂

  22. I have never tried making pork fried rice but your recipe looks good! Thanks for posting this!
