2 T. canola oil
1 1/2 cups diced zucchini ( she used 1 cup peeled, diced broccoli stems)
3/4 cup finely diced carrot
1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper ( she used 3/4 cup)
3/4 cup frozen peas ( she used frozen, shelled edamame, which I couldn't find!)
3/4 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen ( I used fresh)
4 green onions, scallions, thinly sliced- both white and green parts
4 ounces sliced mushrooms- my addition
2 T. finely grated ginger
2 large cloves garlic, minced
4 cups very cold, cooked, brown rice
1 1/2 cups diced pork loin (Ellie used 3/4 cup diced Canadian bacon)
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
Use rice that has been cooked the day before or early in the day, so that it will be well chilled. Using fresh cooked rice will give you mush, which is not good! Put the diced pork in a small bowl with about 2 T. soy sauce, I T. oil and 1 clove diced garlic and let marinate while you chop all the veggies. Prepare all the vegetables before you begin this dish. Heat 1 T. oil in a nonstick skillet or stir-fry pan over med-high heat. Add the drained pork to the pan and let it cook and brown well; then remove the pork to a plate. Add another T. of oil to the pan if needed. Add the zucchini, mushrooms, bell pepper, and carrots and cook, stirring frequently about 3-5 minutes. Then add the corn and peas and stir about 1 minute. Next, add the scallion, ginger and garlic and don't cook very long, maybe 1 minute. Cooking the ginger and garlic too long seems to kill the flavor. Add the rice and stir until heated through. Make a 3 inch well in the middle of the pan and add 1 tsp. oil, if needed. Add the eggs and stir them until almost fully scrambled. Then stir the eggs into the rice mixture. Add the cooked pork and soy sauce; stir and it's ready to serve! This is a very delicious and flavorful dish. I love the fresh ginger and garlic in this easy meal. Since I used very lean pork, I still think this was a very healthy meal. I needed it to be a main dish and it worked very well. All of the fresh veggies made this dish and I'll definitely be making it again. We loved it!
Now, if the sun would come out, maybe my pictures will be better! I'm taking pictures on my back porch by the windows, but the sun is hidden. We are having a strange August, so far, but I'm not complaining. I like 85 degrees better than 100! Have a great day!
