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
- Boil the rice until just cooked, drain, and allow to cool.
- Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and fry the onion until slightly softened.
- Add the pork and fry until lightly browned.
- 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.
- Add the cooled rice and stir to combine, then make a well in the middle of the pan and crack the eggs into it.
- 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.
- Throw in two thirds of the chopped spring onions about a minute before serving, along with the soy sauce.
- Serve with the remainder of the spring onions scattered on top.
