Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or peanut oil
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 lightly packed cup bean sprouts
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 1/2 cups day old Right Rice, recipe follows
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce (recommended: Sriracha)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Right Rice:
  • 1 1/2 cups Carolina rice
  • Water, for rinsing and cooking
Directions

In a large nonstick saute pan or wok, heat the oil over high heat. When the oil begins to swirl, add the ground pork, salt and ginger. Break the pork up with a spoon and stir while browning. When the pork is cooked through and golden, add the garlic, scallions, bean sprouts and peas. Stir and cook for a minute or so more, then push it to the side and add a bit more oil, if needed. Add the rice and quickly stir to heat and toast the rice. Once a crust has formed on some of the rice, add the soy sauce and chili sauce. Season with more salt, if needed. Incorporate the rice with the rest of the ingredients in the pan. Once combined, push to the sides and add the eggs to the center, allowing the eggs to curdle lightly. Rapidly stir the rice in to coat while the eggs are cooking. The eggs act as glue instead of being left as big curds separated from the rice. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately

Right Rice:

Rinse the rice 3 times to remove the starch. Put the rice in a medium saucepan. Fill the saucepan with enough water to cover the rice by 1/2-inch. Or measure by putting your thumb tip on the rice and filling the pot with water until the water reaches the middle of your thumbnail. Bring the rice to a simmer over low heat, then cover and cook until tender and liquid is evaporated, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let the rice stand another 5 minutes, covered.
