Have I ever told you how much I love pork?

Of course I have.

My “About Me” Page used to read that I was a closet porkaholic. I decided that didn’t sound very nice, so I took it off. But certainly not because I feel any different.

Pork is by far my favorite source of protein. It’s so rich, juicy, flavorful and there are so many options of piggy products. You’ve got:  bacon, pork belly, canadian bacon, pork chops, ham, pork roast, pork loin, rib roast, pork ribs, pepperoni, sausage, ground pork, pulled pork, pork shank, ham hocks…. I could go on.

Most of my favorite meals involve a little porky flavor, even if it’s just bacon grease.

But today’s dish is about celebrating pork in all its glory, with a trinity of porky deliciousness.

A little over a year ago, Lt. Dan and I went to Hawaii for a wedding. (Note to Friends: I would prefer if all future weddings were held in tropical places.)

It had been a while since we had traveled without the kids, and we were able to rest and really enjoy each other’s company without the wee ones present.

One of our most memorable meals was at a little diner on Maui called the Kihei Cafe. They served triple pork fried rice for breakfast. An enormous pile of sizzling hot rice with bacon, ham and diced pork generously dabbled throughout.

Kihei Cafe’s pork-tastic rice dish left such an impression, I had to come home and create my own version.

This simple pork fried rice recipe is amplified by the addition of bacon and ham, on top of the traditional seared bits of pork chop. The rice is fried right in the bacon grease to enhance the pork essence. Scrambled eggs, garlic, ginger, onions, sweet peas and carrots help balance the porky overload.

Triple Pork Fried Rice is a new family favorite for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In fact, you may want it for all three!

COOK’S NOTES

Prep all the ingredients and lay them in order before you start; cooking fried rice is a fast process.

Make sure the wok or skillet is smoking hot before adding any ingredient.

The key to a really good fried rice recipe is to use cold rice. Leftover refrigerated rice is firm and a little dry. So it can withstand the stirring and tossing without getting mushy.

Triple Pork Fried Rice

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups cold cooked rice 
  • 12 oz. boneless pork chops, cut into 1/2 inch chunks
  • 8 oz. diced ham
  • 6 oz. thick cut bacon, diced into 1/2 pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 Tb. fresh grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1-3 Tb. soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic chile sauce or sriracha
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Oil if needed

Directions:

  1. Chop all the ingredients and lay them out so they are easy to grab once you start frying rice. Whisk the eggs.
  2. Place a large wok or skillet over high heat. Once the skillet is piping-hot, add the bacon, and stir until just cooked through and crisp. Remove the bacon and place in a bowl. Add the diced pork to the wok. Stir and saute for 2-3 minutes, then add the ham and cook another 1-2 minutes. Remove and place all pork products in the bowl.
  3. Add the eggs to the wok and stir until scrambled and cooked through. Remove and place in the bowl.
  4. If the wok is dry add 1 tablespoon of oil. Then add the onions, carrots, ginger and garlic to the wok. Stir and fry for 1-2 minutes, then dump the rice on top of the veggies. Place the pork and eggs back in the wok and stir.
  5. Add soy sauce to taste and chile garlic sauce. Squeeze a couple lime wedges over the rice and mix in the peas. Then stir and cook just until the peas and rice are warmed through.
  6. Serve warm with a lime wedge.

    Green onions, that’s the key that I messed up in my last try at fried rice. With bacon and sriracha sauce you can’t go wrong ;)

    This sounds fantastic, Sommer, the only thing better than pork is three times as much pork, right? Love your styling, as always.

    Hi! Loved your entry on triple pork fried rice, might give it a try this weekend :) Just a note though, it’s really inappropriate to place your chopsticks vertically into a bowl (at least in the Chinese culture, not sure about Japanese or Korean culture, but I don’t think it’s favored either) because it looks like a person putting in joss sticks into an urn (for praying to the dead or the gods). Here’s a picture of what I’m trying to say – http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/buddhist-prayer-sticks-1367526.jpg. So yeah, basically just try not to put chopsticks vertically into a bowl. Putting it horizontally on the bowl is good though :)
