There are times when our days get so busy and crazy, it’s hard to put a nice hot meal on the table. I had one of those weeks recently where I was gone for work or activities 4 nights in a row. I was thinking about what I could easily make for my family that would still be good and nutritious, so I decided to make Pork Fried Rice. I did some planning ahead and steamed the rice and broccoli so it was easy to throw the rest together. The kids enjoyed it so much they took the leftovers for school the next day!

2 T. olive oil
1/2 c. chopped carrots

1/2 c. chopped steamed broccoli
2 c. cooked brown rice
Preparing Pork Fried Rice:
Heat olive oil in medium saute pan. Add pork and cook thoroughly, about 8-10 minutes. Drain. In a separate large skillet, melt butter. Add carrots and onions and saute until soft. Scramble eggs in a small bowl. Add to skillet and cook, stirring constantly. When the eggs are cooked, add rice, broccoli, and pork. Stir well to mix ingredients and heat through. Add soy sauce.
If you don’t want to use pork, change it up and use chicken or steak! You can also change up the vegetables you put in.
