Pork fried rice

I love Asian food! From teriyaki to gyoza (which may be posted later this week, we’ll see) it’s one of my favorite things to eat.

When my dad worked in Seattle he used to bring me pork fried rice from Uwajimaya and comic books from Kinokuniya bookstore. So I would call this comfort food, as it reminds me of my childhood. 🙂

Ingredients:

3 large cloves garlic, minced finely
2 small heads of broccoli, chopped
1.5 large carrots, chopped
4-5 stalks of green onion (or chives, one)
3 eggs
1/2 large onion, chopped
1.5 lb of pork, chopped and seasoned with salt & pepper (you could also substitute chicken, beef, or shrimp)
1 cup of peas
rice of your choice (be sure this is done before the rest of the mixture!)
salt and pepper
olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce and 1/4 cup water (1:1 ratio) 

Recipe:

1. Chop garlic, broccoli, carrots, green onions and onion.

2. Chop pork and season with salt and pepper.

3. Cook garlic in a tablespoon of olive oil until golden.

4. Add cubed pork, cook thoroughly.

5. Transfer mixture to plate or bowl.

6. In the same pan, cook the onion, carrot and broccoli on very low heat. Add peas halfway through.

7. Transfer veggies to separate bowl to rest.

8. Add the eggs to the pan, on low heat, and scramble with green onion slices.

9. Add pork and stir.

10. Add vegetables and mix.

11. Add rice and stir mixture.

12. Make soy sauce and water mixture. Stir and add.

12. Cook down until liquid is gone.

13. Enjoy!
