Chinese Pork Fried Rice: Make the Takeout
White or pork-fried rice? It’s a tough decision when you order Chinese takeout—fried rice is packed with flavor, but it’s also usually higher in fat than plain old white rice. And what about when you’re cooking at home?
Our family-pleasing recipe makes choosing fried rice a no-brainer. A quick-and-easy stir-fry, and a perfect way to use up leftover rice, this Chinese Pork-Fried Rice is loaded with red peppers, scallions, peas, and lean pork. It only costs $2.26 a serving, so you save on takeout prices. And because our recipe calls for canola oil and cooking spray, you save calories, too.
Fried rice doesn’t have to be made with pork. Instead of boneless pork chops, substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts, firm tofu, or even shrimp. All you need are some Light ‘n’ Crisp Egg Rolls on the side.
