Fried Rice With Pea Sprouts
When you a want quick meal or time is short, this dish works. It took less than 10 minutes (not including the time for cooked rice), was easy and very satisfying. I used ground pork but there are no clear rules on this recipe., so use whatever you have… like chopped ham, bacon or so on. And above all, you are basically washing only one skillet. That’s an added bonus for me.
Ingredients and Instruction for 2-4 serving. (Print Recipe Here)Because speed is important, you need to have all the ingredients ready
Necessary equipment: Wok or large skillet
- Ground pork 1/2 pound
- Tokyo long green onion approximately 5 inches white part minced
- Vegetable oil or sesame oil or half of each 1 Tablespoon Note: If you are using extra lean meat then you may need some oil when you sauté the meat also.
- Cooked rice 3 cups, keep warm
- 1 egg beaten
- Pea sprouts 1 cup
- Salt and pepper (white pepper preferred)
- Soy sauce (I used Tamari soy sauce)
- Pine nuts about 1/4 cup, lightly toasted
- Heat wok on medium high. Put in the ground pork and green onion. Sauté until the pork is no longer pink. Transfer the pork to a plate. Set aside
- Clean the wok with paper towel. Heat oil in same pan at medium heat. Add the rice and egg and *sauté quickly with wooden spatula,1-2 minutes.Salt and pepper to taste. * Do not press on the rice.
- Put sautéed pork back in the wok. Add soy sauce and pea sprouts and continue to sauté for 1 minute or so. Check the flavoring at this point, adjust seasoning
- Serve with pine nuts on top.
We’re blessed to have neighbor friends over for Eater dinner. We had the usual, honey baked ham which I stood in line to purchase…this is like an Easter ritual. Japanese style potato salad, beans, butter rolls and strawberry kasutera short cake rounded out the meal. We were busy talking, I forget to take pictures with them, that’s a shame.
This is a new 30 minutes Kasutera recipe (in Japanese) that I saw in NHK ‘s ‘Tameshite Gatten’ (ためしてガッテン) broadcasting.You shouldn’t have…They brought an awfully cute flowering plant as a hostess gift. Sweet!
I had such a grateful feeling all day on Easter.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a nice day!
