This is a favorite stand-by recipe that we have tweaked over time to suit our tastes. Serve the pork fried rice, the pot stickers and the broccoli all in one bowl for a healthy and tasty meal. The leftovers are fantastic the next day, too. Other great rice bowls can be made using this idea, or you can use noodles instead of rice and change the meat. I am happy to share this recipe with my justapinch friends. Enjoy!



The photos are my own, and so is this humble recipe.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
COOK'S TIP
I do as much ahead as possible when planning on making my rice bowls. You can throw a meal together very fast if the prep work is all finished.
2
POT STICKERS
You can make your own, or use the pre-packaged pot stickers for convenience. Place a couple of tablespoons of oil in a heavy large saucepan with a tight lid, and fry the potstickers on both sides in a little Canola oil until golden brown. Add one can of chicken broth, bring it to a boil and simmer on low for 10 minutes. Keep warm.
3
POT STICKER SAUCE
In a measuring cup, measure the lite soy sauce, rice vinegar and the sesame oil, stir to combine. Set aside for serving. You are going to pour this sauce over the pot stickers.
4
BROCCOLI
Steam the broccoli Keep Warm.
5
VEGETABLE SAUCE
In a small bowl, combine the 4 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 tablespoon honey, 2 teaspoons rice vinegar, 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon crushed garlic, 2 tablespoons grated ginger and 5 drops of hot sauce. Whisk until smooth. Peanut butter will object to combining but keep at it. Add 4 tablespoons to the pork mixture in another small bowl and mix well. (Set aside the remaining sauce for the vegetables.)
6
VEGETABLES
Scramble two eggs in a little canola oil and cut into strips and set aside. Heat a large skillet on medium heat, and add 1 tablespoon canola oil and 1 tablespoon sesame oil. When the oil is hot, add the green onions, snow peas and carrots, 1 tablespoon crushed garlic, 1 tablespoon ginger zest, and cook for about 3 or 4 minutes, then add the rest of the sauce, stir and add the rice. When the rice is warm, add the egg and toss gently.
7
SERVE
Serve in a large bowl (or a plate). Serve a helping of the pork fried rice, steamed broccoli and 4 potstickers. I cut each pot stickers into 4 pieces if I make a rice bowl. Pour the potsticker sauce over the pot stickers. When the potstickers are cut, they absorb more sauce. Or leave them whole if you choose. Enjoy!
