Pinoy Style Fried Rice Redux



The one thing I love about fried rice is the different combination you can create with them. Then again the same rule applies to cooking. There's no one way to make a dish.

With lent approaching fast, we'll get into that later, I'm slowly eating the last bits of meat I have stocked in my fridge and freezer. What's left are few bacon strips and two hot dogs with cheese (click here to know what I'm talking about). I do have a whole cornish game hen and some ground pork that I need to cook up. But I'll make something those in the coming days, if I haven't by now.

Saturday morning consists of a trip to the farmer's market. Sometimes when I get home, I'm pretty hungry. This is where leftover white rice comes in handy. A Filipino breakfast is usually some fried rice (called sinangag in tagalog) and whatever have in the fridge (eggs, sausage, etc). So I cook up the traditional pinoy fried rice. Instead of adding  butter I cooked the rice in some of the bacon drippings. Cooked the garlic until crisp and gave the hot dog some nice char marks,. Add the rice and mix in the egg, causing it to coat every morsel. Top it off by crumbling the bacon in. Mmmm... a Filipino breakfast redux. You can serve it with a side of white vinegar or ketchup. It's a one plate kind of dish.

Serve 2-3




Pinoy Style Fried Rice Redux

3-4 c cooked rice
6 bacon strip
2 hot dog links - sliced into 1/4 to 1/2-inch coins
2 eggs - beaten and season lightly with salt
2 garlic cloves - minced

In a non-stick skillet, cook the bacon until browned and crisp. Place the strips on a paper towel to drain. If there's a lot of bacon drippings in the pan, remove but 1 tablespoon of the dripping. Then cook the garlic until it's browned then add the hot dog.

Cook the hot dogs roughly 2-3 minutes. Give them an occasional stir. Then add the rice. Break them apart stirring constantly and mixing well until the rice is once again soft. Roughly 5 minutes of so. Then stir in the egg. Again stirring until the egg is completely cooked.

Shortly before serving crumble the bacon into the rice.

Serve warm with a side of white vinegar or ketchup.

I keep telling myself to make more rice than usual for dinner so that I have enough to make sinangag for breakfast! Garlic fried rice is so awesome with yolk-y eggs - it's just about the only way I'll choose rice over pancakes for the first meal of the day. 8-)

I may not mention it much, but I do love fried rice, though I would never think of having it for breakfast - perhaps I should think again!

We ate fried rice for dinner tonight. I threw in peas and corn and some yummy left over pork chop (thinly sliced)leftovers. I put a little soy sauce over it. It was not too bad.

I love your version. I'll have to try the hot dog idea. My kids would love this.

How is the acting coming along? Have you been on any shows this week?
