I have several different types on the blog now HERE, HERE, and HERE so when the stars align in the form of extra leftover rice and very little time on my hands, fried rice seems to be the outcome. And I’m ok with that!

Since Elizabeth has started school, our time together to just chill has become scant. Our mornings are hurried, as neither of us are huge morning fans, particularly if I have wake her up vs allowing her to wake naturally. If there was ever a 5 year old who could use some coffee in the morning…it’s mine.

She usually goes to daycare after school and is there until dinnertime. Once she comes home, it’s dinner, homework and back to bed, not leaving much time for us. I should mention she goes to bed early…somewhere between 6:30-7:30 pm on school nights or the mornings are unbearable. Pork Teriyaki Fried Rice ~ Leftover rice, extra teriyaki glaze, pork on sale, some eggs and veggies and you have a quick dinner ready in less than 30 minutes ~ The Complete SavoristYou can see why sometimes dinners need to be quick. Fried rice is both of our favorite and I can get veggies, protein, and carb (which she needs more than I do, but hey) all in one pot. The only I might love more than fried rice are lettuce wraps…which reminds me, it’s been awhile since I made those.Pork Teriyaki Fried Rice ~ Leftover rice, extra teriyaki glaze, pork on sale, some eggs and veggies and you have a quick dinner ready in less than 30 minutes ~ The Complete Savorist

Ingredients

  • 1 lb thin-cut pork chops; sliced into strips
  • 1 carrot; diced
  • 1/2 small onion; diced
  • 4 green onions; diced (divided white and green parts)
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki glaze
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 eggs; scrambled
  • Sriracha; to taste (I used 1 tsp)
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil

Instructions

  1. In a wok or large pan, scramble the eggs and then set aside.
  2. Add 1 tbsp sesame oil to the wok/pan and allow it to get hot; add the strips of pork and cook; about 3-5 minutes, depending on thickness.
  3. Add the carrots, onion, and white parts of green onions, cook for an additional 2-4 minutes, then remove from pan and set aside.
  4. Add the remaining sesame oil and allow it to come up to heat.
  5. Add the rice, string constantly to mix the rice into the oil.
  6. Once the rice is heated through and browning, add the meat, veggies, and egg back to the pan and toss in the black pepper, green onions, peas, teriyaki glaze, and sriracha. Mix well and cook for about 2 minutes, or until everything is well blended and heated through.
  7. Serve and Enjoy.

    My husband and I just had this conversation the other day how I cannot make good Chinese food of any sort. I’m constantly looking for new recipes. This happens to be my MIL’s favorite dish (she lives with us and doesn’t eat much so we are constantly looking for things she will like) so I can’t watt to make it for her. Looks delicious!

      Denise, Chinese really isn’t hard, the key is get prepped fully before you begin because usually it all cooks so quickly. Hope your MIL will like this.

    I just love fried rice but I’m not sure I’ve ever made it at home; Chinese is the one mainstay I have for delivery to treat myself so I don’t usually bother. But this sounds so easy and looks great; I might have to change my ways!

      Thank you Barbara. I love take out, but homemade is better in that you can watch the sodium levels, something Chinese is notorious for having to much of.

    I remember those days of early bed times with my kids and the necessity for quick meals. These days, we need quick meals because of evening activities – this stir-fry would be perfect!

    I usually make extra rice so that I can have fried rice the next day or a few days later. I like the added teriyaki flavor in yours.

      On the Asian aisle, you see both sauce which is thinner like soy sauce and a thicker teriyaki sauce/glaze/marinade (it has lots of various names)
