I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pork Fried Rice

This nutritious, adaptable meal is a go-to when you've got leftover rice. We used carrots, onion and peas in this one but use whatever veggie suits your fancy. And we ate pork chops the night before and had two chops extra in the package. So two chops turns into a meal for 4 with this classic. Economical right!?

1 1/2 cups diced pork (loin or chops)
1/4 cup sodium reduced soya sauce
2 tbsps water
2 tbsps orange juice
1 1/2 tbsps brown sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder

1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cups cooked, chilled long-grain white rice (could use leftovers)

2-3 tbsps soya sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp rice wine or white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tsps minced garlic
1/2 cup diced white onion
1/2 cup diced carrot
1 or 2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup frozen, thawed green peas
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

First off, if you don't have 2 cups of leftover cooked rice cook some up then chill it down in the fridge. Combine the marinade ingredients from the sodium reduced soya sauce up to and including the onion powder. Add the diced pork and marinate in the fridge all day, or at least an hour. When ready, heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the pork, discard the marinade, and stir fry until cooked through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
Whisk 1 tbsp soya sauce, sesame oil, vinegar and sugar together and set aside. Now heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil in the wok and add the onions and carrots. Cook about 4 minutes on medium high heat until cooked to your liking then add the garlic.

Push the vegetables to the sides of the pan making a well in the center. Add the beaten eggs, breaking up while cooking.

Then stir the cooked eggs and vegetables together adding in the peas.

Finally return the pork to the pan along with the rice. Add the soya sauce, sesame oil, vinegar and sugar that you set aside before and combine well. Add salt and pepper to taste and more soya sauce after tasting if you like. Stir and heat through about 4-5 minutes.

Serves 4
