Pork Fried Rice

Total Time:
20 min
Prep:
10 min
Cook:
10 min

Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 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
Directions

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
We love pork fried rice, but this was way too salty. I'd forget the bean sauce and cut the chicken broth. I'm still looking for the best pork fried rice recipe. This isn't even close. Kathleen Grand Lake, Colorado item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was so delicious and very easy to make. It was a nice switch up from our normal dinner rountine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Instead of black bean sauce (which I didn't have on hand), I substituted oriental stir fry sauce. It was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so easy and quick. Whenever I have leftover rice, this is one of my new go-to recipes. My teenager loves this recipe. I sometimes substitute leftover bits of chicken for the pork. I also bump up the veggies and sometimes add frozen peas, peapods, and bean sprouts. I had never used black bean sauce before, but now I keep it in my fridge just for this recipe. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
That black bean sauce was a waste of money and ruined the rice....... item not reviewed by moderator and published
never heard of using blackbean and garlic in fried rice, I just got thru making shrimp in black bean sauce, not having made it for a long long time I used 2 tablespoons of the sauce let me tell you the sauce was so salty it was unedible and Robin used 1/4 cup of the sauce which I believe is an extra tablespoon,how can the food net let her give us such a recipe, it just totally stunk. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We used leftover thin pork chops that were previously cooked with an Asian marinade, so they worked great with this recipe. Plus we had some extra jasmine rice, and were liberal with our ginger. The result was very tasty, and it was easy and quick to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought it was a great leftover recipe for pork. I did add onions and a little bit of duck sauce which added a bit more flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband even likes this and that is hard to come by. Was easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so tasty and an excellent use of leftover pork tenderloin and rice! So fast and quick! I couldn't find black bean sauce so I just used soy sauce and a little chicken broth and let it simmer down. Thanks Robin! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was very easy. even my husband who doesn't like rice just loves it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe created the most bland prok fried rice I have ever tasted. In addition, adding the black bean sauce turned the rice a very dark brown color- not too pretty to look at. item not reviewed by moderator and published
very taisty took abput 20 min. for prep and 15 min for cooking item not reviewed by moderator and published
Umm.. wow.. you're not supposed to "boil" your rice in liquid when you make fried rice, and i've never seen anyone use black bean sauce like this. If you're even 10% chinese you wouldn't fry rice the way she does... I guess I have very high standard when it comes to Chinese food, but the recipe really has no authenticity item not reviewed by moderator and published
The consistency was strange and the black bean sauce gave it an odd flavor. I won't be making this again but it was edible. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My wife wanted Oriental food for Dinner last night, so I made Kung Pao Beef and this Pork fried rice, only I used Chicken. My wife loved it, we have tried to come up with Fried rice on our own and it never worked out. I enjoyed it and look forward to making it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

IF YOU'RE AN AMATEUR COOK, YOU MIGHT HAVE A HARD TIME WITH SOME OF THE INGREDIENTS, LIKE BEAN SAUCE, AND THE OIL IS VERY EXPENSIVE. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was really looking forward to this dish. Unfortunately, it lacked taste and had the consistency of mush. My husband said it was odd, but edible...my daughter asked I make her something else. I won't be making this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This looked so good when Robin prepared it. The black bean sauce that I purchased was an overwhelming flavor. I love foods with plenty of spice and flavor but didn't like this recipe. When I finally checked the label of the black bean sauce that I used it had 1100 mg. of sodium for 2 tbsp. Don't know what brand she used. I will probably attempt to make this again but with much, much smaller measure of black bean sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I make fried rice quite often when I had leftover rice. My husband like my fried rice,and he prefer I use "fried rice powder" I get from my country japan. I just put all ingredients I want it to have and pour it over and mix well and drizzle little bit of sesami oil and no garlic or ginger and my husband is contended. You maybe can get it at Asian store but if not, still, make scrumble egg in fry pan and put leftover rice and fry them and 1table spoon of soysauce and coat the egg and rice nicely and sprinkle chopped green onion is another version I make.It is simple. If you do use chopped garlic, put oil and garlic and ginger and put veggies and scrumble egg and put leftover rice and fry the rice and put Hoisin sauce and when finished,dash of sesami oil is good. I do not use chicken broth to make fried rice because rice tends to be bit soggy. If you like little bit of spicy side, you maybe can add tiny bit of sirach into this fried rice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
good 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
