Pork Fried Rice

"Just a simple fried rice - a meal on its own. If you like, pair it with stir-fried vegetables. Try to use cold, leftover rice if possible. You can also use any leftover vegetables in place of the corn."

Ready In:




  • Pound the pork with meat mallet/rolling pin between cling wrap until thin.
  • Season both sides with salt, pepper and curry powder; rub it in with your fingers then set aside for a few minutes.
  • Heat 1 TB oil in a wok/skillet.
  • Once hot, pan fry the pork fillet for approx 1-2 mins each side until cooked.
  • Remove from pan and let cool slightly, then slice it thinly across the grain.
  • Heat remaining 1 TB oil in the wok; once hot, saute the garlic until fragrant (approx 30sec).
  • Add rice and stir well.
  • Stir in salsa, soy sauce and corn; saute for another minute (If it gets too dry, add a few tsp of water or chicken stock).
  • Mix in sliced pork and stir briefly to heat through and for flavors to blend.
  • Garnish with some chopped scallions before serving.

  1. Indeed a very unique taste to satisfy the crave of difference in cooking. the idea of having curry powder marinated pork with salsa marks its diversity from the authentic flavor. I have the meat cut into very thin strips and marinate it. so that the curry taste can soak entirely into the pork. 1/2 tsp of salt and pepper per 100g of pork. I use the salt very carefully because later there will be soy sauce anyway. and too much salt in the meat will have the meat taste like smoked. Instead of having hot salsa, i use mild one with addition of crushed chili so that the spiciness can be controlled. Overall, a very well thought recipe with uniqueness worth to be experimented.


Hi everyone! I'm addicted to recipezaar - there are so many things that I love about this site; the wonderful people, recipes, lots of great pictures and there's always someone who'll answer my cooking/baking/general question. I grew up in Malaysia, but now live in sunny Singapore. Both are beautiful tropical (read: HOT!) countries in Southeast Asia. There are so many good food here, especially ethnic stuff like spicy Malaysian curries (which will clear the worst blocked nose), flaky & crispy Indian roti paratha/canai, homey Chinese stir-fries, rich & decadent Asian desserts like kuih lapis (Malay many-layers cake), pineapple tarts, crumbly peanut cookies etc. <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/zaarfreak/REI/12may05REI2_S.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">
