Recipe: Pork Fried Rice

This is the perfect recipe for those nights where you desperately want a takeaway but either don’t have the money or can’t let the diet slip. Next time you’re having that most annoying of internal conflicts, try this recipe for a great fake-away – pork fried rice. I use brown rice in this because I love the nuttiness of it, but if you’d rather not you can use regular white or basmati rice instead.

Ingredients – serves 2

  • 300g pork steaks – you can also use pork stir fry strips, but I tend to cube up a couple of boneless chops!
  • 180g brown rice
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 2tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil


  1. Boil the rice until just cooked, drain, and allow to cool.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and fry the onion until slightly softened.
  3. Add the pork and fry until lightly browned.
  4. Optional – At this point you could add any other veggies you want to or have left in your fridge, I’d suggest peppers, broccoli, or green beans.
  5. Add the cooled rice and stir to combine, then make a well in the middle of the pan and crack the eggs into it.
  6. The eggs will start to cook immediately, so make sure you’re quick and start stirring everything together to combine the eggs in with the rice and pork mixture.
  7. Throw in two thirds of the chopped spring onions about a minute before serving, along with the soy sauce.
  8. Serve with the remainder of the spring onions scattered on top.
