Fried Rice From Leftovers

Jane Whittaker


I have been making this for close to 30 years now and everything is in quantities that you like. You don't like one veggie, use something else.
I have used cooked leftover pork that was marinated in my asian marinade and grilled. Chicken works just as well.
If you like certainly raw pork and chicken is fine, just takes a little longer to cook.
I throw leftover cooked veggies in as well.
Tip for this is have everything prepped and by the stove because this cooks super fast.
