What Is On My Plate? - Pork Fried Rice

Change of plan. I was going to post about the amazing baked macaroni and cheese I made for Thanksgiving but I did not have any good pictures of it, so maybe next time I make it I can actually do that. Today instead I will share my home made Pork Fried Rice. This recipe will give you 4 to 5 heaping servings.

2 Cups white/jasmine rice (prepare separately before hand)
2 large boneless Pork Chops - chopped into 1/2" cubes
4 cloves of garlic - crushed
4 green onions - chopped
1 red pepper - chopped
1 large carrot - shredded
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 eggs
3 Tbsp of butter
3-4 Tbsp Soy sauce

Prepare the rice separately and start preparing other ingredients while it is cooking. In a wok or deep pan heat the olive oil at medium high heat and add the garlic, green onions and red pepper. Saute the ingredients for about 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add the carrot and saute for 1 more minute. Add the pork chop cubes and saute until they are cooked through. Lower heat to a medium low.
Scramble the 3 eggs. In a separate pan heat the butter until it is melted and add the scrambled eggs. once they are cooked through to a firm point transfer them to the pan with the pork and vegetables and mix them in making sure to break up any large lumps. Add the cooked rice and mix well. Add the soy sauce and mix well.
Viola! you have made home made fried rice.
Enjoy :)
