1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil, divided

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup chopped onion

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

2 cooked pork chops, diced (about 2 cups)

1 cup rice, regular or instant, cooked according to package directions

1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves


  1. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs and tilt pan to coat the surface. Cook eggs in an even layer until cooked through, flipping halfway through cooking (about 2 minutes per side). Remove eggs, dice into small pieces and set aside.
  2. To the same pan, heat remaining peanut oil. Add onion, garlic and ginger and cook 2 minutes. Add diced pork and cook 3 minutes, until golden brown. Add rice, soy sauce and sesame oil and cook 2 minutes to heat through. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
  3. Transfer to a serving plate and top with chopped eggs.
