If you have any leftover cooked rice, use it for this dish -- it won't stick together in the skillet and it's an economical, tasty supper that's faster than takeout.

For a lighter version, substitute ground turkey for the pork.

    This was a quick, easy recipe but I did not love it. I usually use sesame oil when I make fried rice and I thought the end result was really missing that flavor. The family ate it but it won't be a repeat dish.

    Wondering if I could use Chinese Stir Fry oil, or sesame oil for a more authentic flavor?

    This is an excellent basic recipe that even the most novice cooks can make. My family absolutely loved it. Using fresh ginger is essential to the success of the recipe. I did use pork, and also substituted chopped sugar snap peas (about 1/2-3/4inches) instead of peas. As a seasoned cook with a repertoire of excellent recipes already, it is not often that I find a recipe to add to my collection. But this is one.Five Stars!!!!!

    Wow!! This is SO simple & easy to make. In addition to the fresh ground sausage I added sausage that is linked! Oh Yes. My fiance loved it! Thanks for the excellent recipe. This is a keeper.

    This was delicious! I doubled the recipe and made some swaps and additions. (sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, brown rice, etc) It satisfied my chinese-takeout craving and helped me use some leftover pork!

    hi phoebew - this is from March 2011 issue of Everyday Food. I like to read it from the magazine as well. I made this with brown rice because that is all I had and it turned out great! The first time I made it with chicken and the second time I made it with leftover pork chops (all chopped up) it's such a great recipe, I'm so glad I found it!

    I tried this recipe after seeing it in one of the Everyday Food issues. It looked like something my husband would eat. We both loved it! Since my husband liked it so much, the second time I added a little extra rice because it would make more leftovers, but he didn't even touch the leftovers! I investigated why, and it was because the meat to rice ratio was apparently more pleasing in the original recipe. So, if you have a steak & potatoes type on your hands, don't add extra rice : )

    Loved this recipe! It was simple and tasted great! I did use part of a ham steak instead of ground pork as that is what I had on hand. And I used brown rice instead of white. I was nervous about the rice vinegar but it really "made" the dish, it adds such a nice fresh flavor. Will be making this again and again.
