An Authentic Tasting Pork Fried Rice Recipe
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 best way to make this recipe is to use leftover rice. If you don’t have any try and cook it up ahead of time and let it cool down in the fridge. If you make it this way it will be more firm and not mushy. Because mushy equals bad.
How To Make BBQ Pork Fried Rice
Grab a pork tenderloin and give it a good coating of Stubb’s Pork dry rub. If you can’t find Stubb’s brand, use whatever kind you can find. Or you can try our favoirte dry rub recipe that we use on our pulled pork and chicken wings!
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 restaurant quality meal like you’ve never made at home.
I’m not sure that we’ve ever made this recipe that there is anything left over. Ever. So if you’re smart you’ll go ahead and double it from the start!

For the Rice
- 5 cups rice, cooked and cooled in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or up to overnight

When are we supposed to add the egg?
Good catch Alex, I just updated the recipe. When you add the cooked rice and other ingredients to the pan you can add the egg back in.
I think this recipie is supposed to say makes 5 cups of rice, now pre make 5 cups of rice, because I did, and holy shitaki that was a lot of rice, like an entire giant pot full, that even half the amount of along with the other ingredients didn’t even begin to fit in my wok, I think y’all meant 3 cups of rice
Skye, I actually did mean 5 cups for the recipe. The recipe calls for 5 cups of “cooked” white rice, not 5 cups of uncooked rice.
Making this tonight ! Is the nutritional info for the whole meal or one serving?
The whole meal, I have to go through and update that!
Thanks Dan! I couldn’t figure out based on the ingredients how one serving could be equal to a fast food meal!!
No kidding! It’s actually pretty healthy when you break it down…enjoy!
We’ve made this twice! Used leftover BBQ country style ribs instead of cooking new pork. So, so good!
