3. After the rice has been fully cooked, turn off the heat source on the stovetop and remove the pot from the heat. The excess water in the pot can be drained in to the kitchen sink.

4. Now, you can take a shallow, approximately 9 inches in circumference round frying pan. Drizzle two tablespoon of cooking oil into the frying pan and spread around to grease the frying pan, distributing the oil evenly in the frying pan.

5. Place the frying pan on the stove top and turn the cooking heat on medium.

6. Using a large spoon, scoop the cooked and drained white jasmine rice into the frying pan that was greased with cooking oil. Allow the cooked rice to start to “fry” and brown for preparing this delicious pork fried rice.

7. Add a generous amount of soy sauce on top of the rice and stir. The white rice should be starting to have a brown appearance pretty readily. With a large spatula, try to push the cooked rice that has been blended with soy sauce over to the side a bit in the frying pan.

8. With the room that you made, you have created some space in the same frying pan to scramble up a couple of eggs really quickly for the pork fried rice. Add a little more cooking oil to the space that you have created in the frying pan. Crack 2 or 3 raw eggs right into that space and let the eggs scramble up quickly as you stir and toss them around in the frying pan. Once the eggs have a fully cooked scrambled eggs texture, then you can mix the eggs in to the rice. You are that much closer to having your delicious pork fried rice!

9. Next, into the pot, add the cooked pieces of pork that you had set aside earlier. Stir the soy sauce blended rice, eggs and pork all together. Reduce heat to a low simmer and add chopped onion and the recommended spices (approximately 1 teaspoon each) as desired.

10. Stir the pork fried rice dish again, then remove the frying pan containing the pork fried rice dish from the heat and turn of the stove.

That’s really all there is to it. The pork fried rice is prepared. You can let your delicious pork fried rice cool a little and then the pork fried rice is ready to enjoy!

Looks easy to cook. Can I use brown rice or white rice instead of Jasmine rice?
