This is a GREAT alt. to chinese takeout. I used brown rice medley to boost the nutrition value of the rice. Used 3 egg whites and threw in broccoli to add in a green veggie to round out the meal. The leftovers also reheat well and are a nice hot lunch treat for my 8 yr old in a thermos! Sometimes I make this with whatever veggies I have laying around in the fridge. Quick and EASY.
Quick and Easy Pork Fried Rice
Forget takeout! We're fired up for Quick and Easy Pork Fried Rice. The pork is very tender and we love the sweet and sour flavor of the sauce.
