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.
- 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.
