Quick Pork Fried Rice

There are so many ways to make fried rice. This one is a quick and easy recipe I use for kids and when we have rice leftover in the rice cooker.


  • Eggs
  • Carrots
  • Sweet onion
  • Scallion
  • Shitake mushroom

  • Mushroom soy sauce (or just soy sauce)
  • Sugar
  • Black Pepper

  • Steamed rice – the older the better

1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil, and fry eggs, or scramble, however you like it.
2. Add pork to the pan, I leave eggs in the pan but you can take them out first before you add meat.
3. For kids, I add carrots and sweet onion sooner so that it cooked down and soft, but I add them with rice later if it was for me.
4. Add shitake mushroom.
5. Add 1 tsp of (mushroom) soy sauce.
6. Saute until pork is cooked.
7. Add one cup of rice – that’s my usual but you can use more and adjust the condiment accordingly. This rice in the picture is still pretty fresh so it’s stickier that I would like it to be.

Add one more teaspoon of (mushroom) soy sauce, dash of sugar, and dash of black pepper.
8. Stir and break all little “rice ball”.
9. Add scallion and give it another stir. Taste and add more (mushroom) soy sauce and sugar to taste if needed.

My tips is you don’t need a whole lot of rice to make a good fried rice and always finish with high heat.

This is after I plate the rice for all three of us this afternoon. Yum!
