Easy Pork Fried Rice 

food, recipe

I love fried rice but have never made it before. After pursuing Pinterest for recipies it seemed like it was pretty easy to put together. I didn’t have some of the items that were traditional for fried rice so I made my own version, I really liked it but Mike was a little on the fence. I had added freshly minced ginger and it was a bit much for him so I think next time I won’t add as much or not at all (I really like ginger though so I thought it was yummy). 

I made rice the night before and made sure to make extra so I could use it for the fried rice. You could make a fresh batch of you need to though. I would make 1 cup of rice for this recipe (about 1.5-2 cups cooked).

I also only had ground pork, it was from Otto’s on Woodstock and is so good! Every time I use their ground pork for something it turns out so flavorful, I would definitely check them out or find a local place by you. I had a little over a pound and I think it was a bit too much meat so I would suggest only using a half a pound or maybe three quarters of a pound.
