Spicy Pork Fried Rice

It amazes me that I only have one or two recipes on this blog for stir fries.  Honestly, I make this dish almost two times a week.  It is a fantastic way to use up leftover meat, vegetables, etc.  Throw in some rice, noodles or quinoa and you’ve got yourself a meal.  It’s always a hit with my family.  There is never the complaint – stir fry again!  There are so many ways to change it up and is a perfect venue for your personal creativity – your stir fry can be an expression of yourself (that sounds really corny!).

The following are staples of my stir fry:
toasted sesame oil
soy sauce
chili garlic sauce (sister of sriracha with the rooster on front and green lid)
seasoned rice vinegar
sometimes - green onions, cilantro, toasted sesame seeds

As well, Kikkoman makes a Sweet Soy Sauce that makes a lovely caramelized glaze – especially if you are adding noodles.

I think the picture below is so cool - you can see the steam rising in the top left hand corner!

This one is not a great picture but once again I love the blurry steam.

Anyway, here's the recipe:
Spicy Pork Fried Rice
Serves 4

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 small head broccoli chopped small, using some of the stem
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced small
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
Cooking Directions
  1. In a large wok heat canola oil to high. Add vegetables and cook for 5 - 7 minutes, constantly stirring, until vegetables are slightly softened. Add sesame oil, garlic and pork. Stir constantly. Cook for 5-7 more minutes or until pork is thoroughly browned. 
  2. Add chili garlic sauce and stir until combined. Add rice and soy sauce. Stir until the soy sauce is evenly distributed.
  3. Serve steaming hot!
