Tasty Thursday - Fried Rice

I really like pork chops, but my husband doesn't.  Usually the leftover ones get dried up and then I really don't like them so I usually end up throwing them away.  This is the perfect way to use up those leftover, dried pork chops.  Pork Fried Rice.  The other bonus is that it's super easy and fast to make. 

Pork Fried Rice

leftover pork chops, cut into tiny pieces

3 cups cooked white rice (leftover works best)

3 Tablespoon Sesame oil 

1 cup frozen peas and carrots, thawed

1 small onion, chopped

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 eggs, slighten beaten

1/4 cup soy sauce

On medium high heat, heat the oil in large skillet or wok.  Add the peas and carrots mix, onion and garlic.  Stir fry until tender.  Lower the heat to medium low and push mixture off to the side.  Pour the eggs in the other side of skillet and fry until scrambled.  Add the rice, soy sauce and pork, mix all together.  Stir fry until thoroughly heated.  

I will sometimes add green onion when it's just my husband and myself.  I have also added the small baby ears of corn for something different.  When I think about it, I will make the rice in the morning before work and refrigerate it, making my leftover rice.  It's not necessary to use leftover rice, but it is drier than freshly made and easier to stir the ingredients together.  

 This recipe my entire family really likes this recipe.  Shocker right?  I so wish that would happen more often.
