Pork and Vegetable Fried Rice is the Perfect Side Dish for any Asian Meal
The first step to doing great fried rice is the eggs. You make them almost like you do when you make an omelet.
Let them start to set in the pan and the swirl them to the middle and let the part that is not set ooze out to the edge. When they are all set, then you place them on a cutting board and chop them into pieces.
After that it’s fairly straight forward. You just keep cooking the ingredients adding them bit by bit until the whole dish is done. Then the oyster sauce and chopped eggs are added back to the pan to finish.
Vegetables are added in close to the end so that they will still have some crunch to them. Garnish with some chopped green onion and serve.
I used barbequed spare ribs that I chopped up for my meat but you can substitute pork chops or pork loin cut into pieces.
And now who is ready for some Asian dishes? And of course, you need some chopsticks. (affiliate link) They last about 3 minutes in my hands before I switch to a fork but a gal’s gotta try, right?

- Pour 1 tbsp. of sesame oil into a non stick pan. Pour in the eggs and swirl them around to coat the bottom of the pan.
