Chinese Pork Fried Rice Tips

Can you make this Chinese pork fried rice recipe with other kinds of rice?

Fried rice is the perfect dish for using up leftover food. In fact, leftover rice is preferred in fried rice recipes because it has a lower moisture content than freshly cooked rice. You can use most types of rice in this Chinese pork fried rice recipe, but we typically use a long-grain white.

What kind of skillet should you use to make this Chinese pork fried rice recipe?

A wok is the traditional cookware for any dish requiring a stir-fry technique, but a nonstick skillet will also work great for making fried rice. A wide, flat skillet gives you more room to work with for cooking the eggs, incorporating other ingredients, and evenly cooking the rice.

What can you serve with Chinese pork fried rice?

Fried rice pairs especially well with egg drop soup, a side of kimchi, egg rolls or some Sriracha sauce.
