Thai Pork Fried Rice
3T vegetable oil
1 onion or 2 scallions, chopped
3 heads of chopped garlic
4 oz pork (chops work well), cubed
2 eggs, beaten
4 cups, cooked rice (about 2 cups, uncooked)
2T fish sauce
1T soy sauce
½ t granulated or superfine sugar
4 scallions, thinly sliced, the long way
2 Thai chilies
Start cooking the rice so it’s ready when you’re done prepping everything else.
Heat the oil in a wok (or large fry pan) and cook the onion for about 2 minutes, until softened.
Add the pork and stir-fry until just cooked, then add the garlic and stir fry 30 seconds more.
Pour in the eggs, and cook until they are set and broken into small lumps, like typical scrambled eggs.
Add the rice and mix it in with the onion, pork and eggs, then add the fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar (you can mix these together before) and cook the rice until it is completely warmed through.
Serve in bowls, with the scallions and chili slices on top, accompanied by lime wedges.
We at Feral Cooks really like Thai food, and who doesn’t. But some people don’t like to cook it because they can’t get the ingredients they need. Have no fear with this recipe, the only “exotic” ingredient is the fish sauce, and that’s not hard to get.
