This just isn’t your average pork fried rice recipe, it’s BBQ Pork Fried Rice! If you have leftover pork from last night’s dinner, this is going to be perfect!
As you can see by a lot of our recipes, we do like fried rice around here. It’s one of those dinners that everyone loves (thank god there’s some) and you can pretty much whip together using whatever you have in the fridge.
Don’t have frozen peas? Use some chopped broccoli or asparagus.
Don’t have pork or beef? Use grilled chicken.
You get the idea…but what you do need is rice. And some basic seasonings that we always have on hand in the fridge.
The trick to getting awesome, restaurant quality fried rice is making the rice ahead of time. Try and cook a batch up in the morning or even the day before and let it cool and kind of harden up in the fridge. That way you don’t end up with mushy fried rice. ‘Cause no one at your dinner table is going to like that…
Start by getting a 1 lb. pork tenderloin and giving it a good coating of Stubb’s Pork dry rub.
That will only need about 15 minutes in your oven, take it out and cover it with Stubb’s Sticky Sweet BAR-B-Q sauce and throw it back in for another 7-8 minutes.
BBQ pork is done.
While the pork is resting you can start the rice. Add the onions and garlic first and let them start cooking for about five minutes, then you can start dumping everything in.
The rice, eggs, peas and seasonings – including a good heaping teaspoon of the Stubb’s Pork dry rub and stir it all together.
Dice up your pork and toss that in at the last minute and you’re in for a BBQ dinner like you’ve never had.
There’s gonna be empty bowls all around with this BBQ Pork Fried Rice!
