This light, comforting rice dish can be a meal on its own or a yummy side dish to teriyaki chicken and other meat entrees.
  • 2 cups short grain rice (I use either short or long, depending on what I have)
  • 1 small package BBQ pork, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • Roughly ¼ cup chopped green onion
  • ½ -1 tsp black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp soy sauce, to taste
  • Roughly 2 tsp chopped ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1-2 tsp butter
  1. Cook 2 cups of rice according to the instructions on the package {or use leftover plain white rice}.
  2. Scramble the eggs over medium heat in a pan that is lightly-coated with butter.
  3. In a large pan that is lightly-coated with butter, sauté the ginger and garlic over medium heat.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and stir the cooked rice, BBQ pork chunks, scrambled eggs and chopped green onion into the sautéed ginger & garlic.
  5. Sprinkle the rice generously with black pepper.
  6. Add a splash of soy sauce until the rice is lightly colored. {Start with a small amount of soy sauce and continue adding it gradually, to taste, so as not to add too much. You don't want the rice to be soupy.} The saltiness of the soy sauce should help bring out the other flavors, not overpower them.
