To me, something this delicious bears repeating, if only to offer the tantalizing recipe to someone who may have missed it before.




Pork Fried Rice (F&W magazine, January 2007
3 tablespoons soy sauce
5 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
3/4 pound Chinese barbecued pork, half cut into 1/2-inch dice and half sliced 1/3 inch thick
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 carrot, cut into 1/3-inch dice
1 head baby bok choy, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
6 cups cold cooked Japanese short-grain rice
2 scallions, thinly sliced
Pinch of freshly ground pepper
Kosher salt

In a small bowl, stir the soy sauce with the rice vinegar, sesame oil and sugar. Heat a very large skillet. Add the shortening and let melt. Add the diced pork and stir-fry over high heat for 1 minute. Add the peas, shiitakes, carrot and bok choy and stir-fry until tender. Add the eggs and scramble just until set. IStir in the cooked rice, scallions, soy sauce mixture and pepper and stir-fry until the rice is hot. Remove from the heat and season with salt. Spoon the fried rice into bowls, top with the sliced pork and pickled ginger and serve.
