Pork Fried Rice with Shishito Peppers and Snow Peas Recipe

Fried rice and/or stir-fries are the best way to clean out the fridge of leftovers. For my family, it is usually our last meal before we get our order for the week. I rummage around looking for what we have left and throw it together in either a stir-fry or a fried rice, and voila we have dinner!

I have only made fried rice using leftover rice – meaning it had been cooked and refrigerated for at least a day. If you are making a fresh batch of rice for this recipe, make sure you cool it by spreading it out on a baking sheet for at least 5 to 10 minutes.


  1. In a medium bowl, break up the leftover rice using your hands.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in large cast iron skillet (or wok, if you have one) over high heat until smoking.
  3. Add the rice and cook, stirring constantly, until the rice is light brown and toasted, 3-5 minutes.
  4. Push the rice to the sides of the pan, leaving a space in the middle. Turn heat down to medium-high. Add another ½ tablespoon of oil to the space in the middle.
  5. Add whites of the green onions, peppers, ham, and snow peas; cook, stirring constantly, until veggies are soft, 1-3 minutes.
  6. Mix in the rice with the veggies. Stir in the tamari.
  7. Push the rice to sides of the pan, add the remaining ½ tablespoon of oil.
  8. Break the egg into the oil and season with salt and pepper. Using a spatula, scramble the egg.
  9. Mix in the rice and veggies with the egg. Add the green parts of the green onions. Stir to combine. Serve warm.
