You will be amazed at how delicious this fried rice is! No one will know its made from leftovers!
My idea of balanced parenting is taking the kids to the markets on Sunday morning, letting them eat ice cream and go on the bouncy castle, pick up some fresh fish and local veggies for dinner, then coming home for naps and leaving Sunday arvo for quiet me time! Ha ha perfect, everyone wins!
I have started sharing my no waste meal plans and this week’s included this delicious fried rice using Monday night’s leftover roast pork. Definitely worth a try, your whole family will love it! and it is cheap as chips!
leftover roast pork fried rice
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
½ tsp sesame oil
1 tsp salt flakes
3 tbsp peanut oil
1 onion, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 broccoli stalk, finely diced
½ head cauliflower, finely diced
2cm piece ginger, finely diced
300g leftover roast pork, sliced thinly (or whatever you have left)
4 cups cooked rice
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 red chilli, finely sliced (optional)
1 bunch coriander, roughly chopped,
In a bowl combine the soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, salt and set aside.
Heat half the peanut oil in a wok or large fry pan over med-high heat. Once wok is hot, add the onion, carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, ginger and pork, then stir fry for 5 minutes. Add the remaining oil and rice, then leave to cook for 2 minutes without stirring. This will give a crispiness to the rice. Add the soy sauce mixture and spring onion, mix to combine and cook a further 2 minutes.
Serve topped with chilli (if using), coriander and a wedge of lime.
