Chinese Pork Fried Rice
- 5 tbsp vegetable oil, divided
- ¼ cup pork, cut into small cubes
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced (2 tsp)
- ½ cup frozen corn
- ½ cup frozen peas and carrots
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 3 cups cooked rice, cold*
- Salt to taste
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 green onions, sliced
- Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wok or saute pan over high heat.
- Add pork and garlic. Saute, stirring constantly, until pork is no longer pink.
- Add corn and peas/carrots and saute for 3 minutes. Remove the contents from the pan and set them aside.
- Pour the remaining vegetable oil to the pan. When it’s heated, add eggs and stir until cooked.
- Push eggs to one side and add rice and pork mixture. Stir to combine.
- Make a well in the middle of the pan and add soy sauce. Add green onions and heat through.
- Serve hot.
- *Leftover, day-old rice works best for this recipe, as it’s less sticky.
- Hack: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze in serving-sized portions for up to 3 months.
- Hack: Chop leftover green onions and freeze in a sealable freezer bag or container for future use. While they won’t retain the crispness that would make them suitable for salads or garnish, they will be fine for cooking.

Suggestion: Any cold, cooked rice can be used in this recipe but I like to use this easy vegetable rice to kick up the nutritional value!
