  1. I’ve never made Chinese pork fried rice. To be honest, I don’t eat meat. I live with an Asian man who occasionally makes pork fried rice. It always smells fantastic and now I know how he makes it! I’ve always been shy to ask him how he does it.

    Do you have a vegetarian replacement for the pork?


    1. The meat in this recipe can be left out if you wish  If the pork is cooked in a separate pan, it would be easy to simply take some out before your roommate adds the pork.  You could add more eggs if you wish, or your favorite meat substitute.  Tofu would also work in this recipe.  

  2. This looks amazing, I will try this at home.

    I am always looking for new recipes and when it’s fried in any way I am there! 

    Also, so nice to something else then make money from home reviews all the time so I am really glad I found this article!

    Thanks and keep it up

    1. Ah…fried food.  Does it get any better than that?  😉 I love this because it’s an authentic Asian recipe and saves me money on take-out!  

      I appreciate you comments.
