Pork Belly Fried Rice

Moving day is fast approaching and all my cookware and bakeware are packed away.  I leave you with this one last recipe until I get settled in the new place.  Au revoir!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • oil for cooking
  • 8 slices of pork belly, cut about 1/2″ wide
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and diced
  • 3.5 ounces of shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups of cooked rice (great way to use up day old rice)
  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup of dry sherry
  • 5 heads of baby bok choy, washed and roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper to season
  • chopped scallions for garnish

Preparation:

In a large deep skillet over medium high heat add onion and oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 minutes and then add pork belly.  Cook for 2-3 minutes and then add carrots and shiitake mushrooms.  Cook until mushrooms are slightly brown and then add eggs.  Let the eggs set a bit but not completely cooked and then add rice.  Break up the rice using your wooden spoon.  Add soy sauce, sesame oil and sherry.  Cook until everything is incorporated.  Add the bok choy last, as it takes no time to cook.  Check for seasoning and then garnish with chopped scallions.

  1. This sounds great. Although, I’m a picky eater when it comes to animal fat (I’d have to remove all of the fat from the pork belly!). And, if you don’t mind my saying so, hoping you’re impending move is exciting rather than stressful.

    • De-fatting the pork belly? Awww… but that’s the best part.. 😀

      It’s been a mess at my place and I can’t wait until moving day when I can get everything unpacked. It’s been quite stressful but I am looking forward to moving to the new house so I guess it is exciting. So it’s exciting and stressful at the same time. 😀

  2. This looks interesting. The whole family loves fried rice and I think I’m gonna give this one a try. By the way, thanks for dropping by and liking one of my posts. Hope you visit again. 🙂
