Have I ever told you how much I love pork?
Pork is by far my favorite source of protein. It’s so rich, juicy, flavorful, and there are so many options of piggy products… Bacon, pork belly, Canadian bacon, pork chops, ham, pork roast, pork tenderloin, 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 goodness, even if it’s just bacon grease.
Yet this Triple Pork Fried Rice recipe is completely about celebrating pork in all its glory, with a trinity of porky deliciousness.
The Best Triple Pork Fried Rice
A few years ago, Lt. Dan and I went to Hawaii for a wedding. 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.
Our simple Triple Pork Fried Rice 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.
Bonus: All of the cooking for this recipe is done using just one wok or skillet, and everything can be served and enjoyed in one bowl!
