Pork Fried Rice

Pork Fried Rice

As with most Asian countries, the most consumed food in the Philippines is rice and Pork Fried Rice is one of the top contender when it comes to leftover rice. It is most often boiled and served during most meals. Left over rice is often fried with garlic and onion to make sinangag (fried rice), which is the typical way of Filipino style fried rice. One of the most common dishes served with classic fried rice are Silogs.

Pork Fried Rice

As most Filipinos know they come in several combinations, but the most common ones are Tapsilog, Longsilog, and Tocilog. One of the keys to making fried rice is using the right type of rice. For example, don't use a rice that is very sticky or you will have a hard time  incorporating all the ingredients. The rice will stick together rather than breaking apart. Also let the rice sit overnight in the fridge. This will help to break the rice apart a lot easier or at least let it totally cool off before cooking it.

There are endless combination's when it comes to fried rice, but we are not going to talk about all of them today.

Instead I'm going to show you my version which is pretty simple, but it has enough ingredients in it that it could be eaten by itself. This version of fried rice is inspired by the way the Chinese cook theirs, which also became very popular in the Philippines. The same common ingredients are found in both versions. Let's cook shall we?
Ingredients: 5 Cups of cooked long grain rice 1 Cup of diced pork barbecue 1 Cup of diced Ham 1 Small onion diced ½ Cup of diced carrots ½ Cup of frozen green peas 2 Eggs scrambled and sliced into small pieces 1 Tbs. Oyster sauce 2 Tbs. Soy sauce ½ Tsp. Ground black pepper ½ Tsp. MSG (vetsin) optional ½ Tsp. Salt 2 Tbs. Corn oil 8 Stalks of green onions Note: Slice green onions ¼ in. long and then use 4 stalks for cooking and the other 4 as a garnish. Directions: Prepare the rice by breaking it apart completely before you begin. In a large wok heat oil over medium high heat and saute carrots and green peas for 1 minute. Next add the rice and mix it for about one minute. Then add the oyster sauce, soy sauce, barbecue pork, and ham. Keep mixing for 3 minutes. Add the onions, eggs, and season it with msg (vetsin), salt, and black pepper. Keep mixing for another 5 minutes, then add the green onions stirring for another 2 minutes and you're done. Serve with Filipino style pork barbecue and Lumpia (shanghai). Garnish fried rice with the remaining green onions just before serving. Enjoy!

    Looks tasty and healthy at the same time. Better than anything my local Ricebox would have prepared. And they probably add a lot of MSG because I can often taste solid bits of salt in my chicken fried rice.

    Just found this site today. Most of the recipe has MSG on it, is there anything you can use besides MSG? Thanks, love the website. I’m trying a couple of your recipe this weekend. By the way, do you have a recipe for empanada’s?

  7. Mark says:

    Good recipe..never seen peas and carrots in dishes in PI. Usually see the egg as quail eggs sliced and the peas and carots exchanged for nothing or a diced pepper.

  8. Mae,

    You can use this if you can’t use MSG. It is a good substitute for MSG specially when cooking fried rice. Sorry, I don’t have a recipe for Empanada’s.

  17. Vince says:

    kudos for the recipe – and thanks for the morton’s suggestion w/out MSG

  18. George says:

    You always have MSG in your recipe, but this is not critical. I find that skipping the MSG does not change the taste but is also becomes a healthier choice.

  19. George,

    This is a recipe site and not a restaurant! Any recipes you found here can be modified to however you like. So, if you don’t like MSG then don’t use it! Please don’t tell me that using MSG does not make a difference in the taste and for your information most of the food you buy contains MSG. If you really don’t like MSG then you better plant everything you eat and don’t buy anything process food that’s the only way you can avoid MSG. Go to this page if you want to read more stuff about MSG… http://www.filipino-food-lovers.com/things-you-need-to-know-about-msg
