Notes

  • Day-old Rice - you can use Jasmin rice and brown rice alternatively. Cooked nice and fluffy, grains separated is best for fried rice.
  • Vegetables - You can also use broccoli, cauliflower or pakchoi! Cut into pieces then blanch in hot water before stir-frying with the meat for a softer texture.
  • Pork - thinly cut pork belly labeled as sukiyaki or shabu-shabu cut in most Asian grocery stores. You can also substitute with ground pork with fat, bacon, and ham
