Pork ‘very lightly’ fried rice

Pork ‘very lightly’ fried rice

This was really delicious and light feeling!  It is, however, higher in sodium than most meals I ever make so if you already have high sodium issues in your diet, this may not be the best choice for you.

Pork 'very lightly' fried rice



  • 3 cuts of pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped ginger
  • 3/4 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup finely diced carrots
  • 1 cup frozen peas (or you can buy the frozen carrot/pea combo)
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki marinade
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


1.  In a medium-sized bowl, combine pork, ginger, cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon teriyaki marinade.  Stir until cornstarch is dissolved.

2.  Heat a large pan over a skillet on high heat.  Add 2 teaspoons oil.  Then add the pork mixture and stir fry for 1 minute.  Next add the carrots and peas and stir fry for another minute.  Add the rice and onions and stir fry for another minute.  Add cilantro and pepper and 1 more tablespoon of the teriyaki sauce, and continue to stir fry until pork is cooked through, 1-2 minutes.
