it's probably because i'm asian

...but we're really loving rice dishes lately.
This is our newest favorite recipe. It's quick, easy, and budget conscious!


1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp finally chopped garlic
4 oz. pork, cut into small cubes
2 eggs, beaten
4 scallions, finely sliced, to garnish
2 fresh red chilies, sliced, to garnish
1 lime, cut into wedges, to garnish
2 1/2 cups long grain rice
3 tbsp veg. oil
2 tbsp Thai fish sauce
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1/2 tsp {superfine} sugar

1. Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet. Spread out and leave to cool.
2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook for about 2 minutes, until softened.
3. Add the pork to the softened onion and garlic. Stir-fry until the pork changes color and is cooked.
4. Add the eggs and cook until scrambled into small lumps. Add the rice and continue to stir and toss, to coat it with the oil and prevent it from sticking.
5. Stir in the fish sauce, soy sauce, and sugar; mix well. Continue to fry until the rice is thoroughly heated.
6. Spoon into warmed individual bowls and serve; garnish with scallions, chilies, and lime wedges.

Happy cooking!
