I've been making fried rice since I was a young girl living in Okinawa. Sometimes it's been good and sometimes not. This last batch turned out so good that I wanted to write it down. Of course you can use chicken or shrimp instead of pork. You can put in broccoli or cauliflower, snow peas.... or any semi-firm vegetable. My family was delighted with this fried rice.

This really is slammin' fried rice. Each bite is filled with distinct flavors from the assortment of ingredients. We love how the peas give it a pop of sweetness in contrast to the spicy and robustness of the sauce. This makes a wonderful meal or a side dish. Delish!
