Servings: 2 people


  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil or any high temp cooking oil
  • 2 cups rice day old refrigerated rice recommended
  • 2 eggs beaten add a pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup bbq pork (or your favorite protein)* diced
  • half green onion white part for fried rice and green part for garnish
  • ¼ cup carrots and peas
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce for color
  • pinch of MSG optional
  • pinch of chicken bouillon optional


  • Beat your eggs with a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • Prepare ingredients before making fried rice because the rice takes less than 5 minutes to cook. Dice up your char siu (bbq pork) and set aside. Slice half of the green onions (white part only) and set aside. Set aside 1/4 cup peas and carrots.
  • Heat up your wok or pan on high heat. Once you see smoke coming from the pan, add 2 tablespoons oil.
  • Add your beaten eggs and separate quickly. Then, add char siu (bbq pork).
  • After the one minute mark, add your white rice. Start breaking up the chunks of rice. Continue to stir often to avoid burning the ingredients since you are cooking at high heat.
  • Then, add carrots, peas, 1/2 tsp salt, MSG (optional), and chicken bouillon (optional). Mix together often.
  • Once the rice is heated up and hot, finish with soy sauce for color! Mix together and add sliced green onions if you wish. The fried rice should take no longer than 5 minutes. Hope you enjoy!
