Minced Pork Fried Rice

Minced Pork Fried Rice

It is midweek and I need a quick fix for the lunch boxes. Something easy but can still satisfy three large appetites. Time to cook the Ro-Ri household perennial favorite, Minced Pork Fried Rice. This also gives me a chance to use up that half pack of minced pork left in the refrigerator.

I have cooked this Minced Pork Fried Rice many, many times as my boys really like it. I got the idea of adding cauliflower in fried rice from my Mom. She makes a really delicious fried rice with ground chilies, dried shrimp, cauliflower, and green peas. Cauliflower is a great vegetable to use as it will not make the rice soggy. Together with carrots, zucchini, and green peas, there is a nice mix of colors in this fried rice. These vegetables are also easily available and I always have them in the fridge.
