Pork Fried Rice

Total Time:
20 min
10 min
10 min

4 servings

  • 4 teaspoons peanut oil, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced or pre-shredded
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups leftover white rice
  • 1/4 cup black bean sauce
  • 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, optional
  • 1 cup diced cooked pork
  • Salt and ground black pepper

Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until cooked through and scrambled. Remove eggs from pan and set aside.

To the same skillet over medium heat, add remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add scallions, carrots and garlic and saute 2 minutes. Add rice and pork; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add black bean sauce and stir to coat rice. If the black bean sauce is overly thick, add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 5 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Stir in cooked egg just before serving.

For everyone complaining that this isn't authentic because of the black bean sauce, I think you need to get over it. She doesn't claim that its authentic! That's whats wonderful about cooking and trying new things. There are a million variations of different recipes. How boring if we only made things the original "authentic" way. If you don't like black bean sauce make a different variation. For those that do..Enjoy! That's what cooking is all about! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I should have followed my instinct before making this one, as I had a feeling the Black Bean Sauce would be too much :( Tried adding the chicken broth to make it less salty but it still didn't help. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe...very easy to make...got rid of several left overs including refried beans ( used instead of black bean sauce) from a taco night......going to add soy sauce in the cooking process next time item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been looking for an easy....tasty fried rice recipe and this one works great....I was able to use up lots of leftovers and made them look totally different than the first time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I use this recipe all the time to use up leftovers. Sometimes chicken, sometimes pork.....or no meat at all. And I throw whatever leftover veggies I have on hand in. I keep a jar of the black bean sauce in my pantry. Whole family loves....including 7 year old Grandson! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sounds really great and yes daych you really must buy the black bean sauce especially if you cook a lot of chinese foods. It sounds really shallow me telling you to buy the black bean sauce but it's so worth it. Thanks My bad. Hoisen sauce is what I was thinking. Sorry. Do use the Hoisen and you should (hopefully love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it without the black bean sauce because it's not an ingredient I think about when I think of fried rice. I added chicken broth and everyone added soy sauce. It was good not great, but I will probably make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Who knew you could make Asian "take out" at home so quickly and easily? We have Robin's cookbook and found this recipe for leftover pork. We had everything in the fridge or pantry, so it was a no-brainer. We added snap peas instead of frozen since we had them. Also added some chinese spice. Now, I just watched Robin make this dish on TV! It was as easy as it looks. Did not know about the bok choy side dish - will try that next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sorry but I am of Asian descent, and where she gets the black bean sauce is beyond me. The best secret to great fried rice is the Soy Sauce and the spices that go into it. And the best is always home made by mom U It may look pretty on the plate, but the taste is not authentic and will never be using her ingredients. Fried rice no matter how you make it can be quick and simple but it has to taste good to be worth it. Sorry Robin. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this receipe is nice and different. normally when i make fried rice i just use soy sauce for the flavor. black bean sauce was a nice change. i use black bean sauce all the time. the black bean sauce must be an acquired taste.... i do agree with another reviewer you can add other veggies and meats to make it different item not reviewed by moderator and published
did you actually make this recipe and decide that it was bad? I'm assuming that you did not since you said that you will never be using her ingredients. This may not be an "authentic" enough recipe for you but how can you give it 2 stars if you won't even give it the time of day and try it? Pretty silly to review recipes you would never bother making, but thanks for your "Asian descent" opinion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
