I've been craving fried rice. More specifically I've been craving that fried rice above, the one I made way back when I had a cast iron skillet and a crock pot. The fried rice is made with left over pulled pork. In my world pulled pork is made in a crock pot. I have no crock pot in Brazil but if you have a crock pot in your side of the world then you should make this recipe. It's a really good recipe and I'm not just saying that because I made it, believe it or not I'm kind of shy about the food I cook.
But I did make this! And I wrote the recipe down! And now I want to make it again but first I need to figure out how to make pulled pork via another method that does not require a crock pot. Any suggestions? If you tell me I should make it Hawaiian style in an imu I'll just have to roll my eyes because that is seriously more work than I can dream of though I would have enough left over pulled pork to make fried rice for a very long time, no doubt. Oh well, at least the recipe is now documented and when I return to the land of kitchen-appliances-a-plenty I'll make this again, unless of couse you have a pressure cooker recipe for pulled pork. If that's the case I may end up loving you forever.
