Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 3 small bows rice use cold or leftover rice
  • 1 bowl peas
  • 3 small carrots finely diced
  • 2 spring onions chop finely
  • 2 cloves garlic chop finely
  • 3 large eggs
  • 200 g new year pork cut into small dices

Seasonings

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 pinch white pepper powder

Instructions

  1. Boil a pot of water to cook the carrots and peas separately (due to the carrots taking longer to cook). Refresh each in cold water after they have cooked.
  2. Beat the eggs with one teaspoon of soy sauce and half a teaspoon of sugar. Heat up the wok with a little bit of oil to first of all scramble the eggs. Leave the eggs aside for later.
  3. Heat up a little bit of oil in a wok and add the New Year Pork to fry it for 3-5 minutes, or until the pork is cooked. Add the rice into the wok and stir fry both evenly until cooked. Make sure as with all fried rice dishes there are no lumps in the rice.
  4. Add the eggs, spring onions, garlic and the vegetables into the fried rice and stir fry evenly until cooked. Add the seasonings, mix evenly and taste the fried rice. Note I didn’t use a lot of soy sauce or salt as the New Year Pork can have a really strong taste which can sometimes be quite salty.
  5. Note: If you can’t find New Year Pork in your local Chinese supermarket (only a Chinese supermarket will sell this) you can use as alternative; pancetta or bacon lardons. They won’t be as strong but has the same principle.
