Pork Fried Rice Recipe Is Faster and Tastier Than Takeout — Pro Tip Makes It Even Easier

This ginger-infused dish speeds to the table in minutes

During the work week, once I get through a long day, sometimes the last thing I want to do is cook dinner. And if you’re like me, it’s hard to resist the urge to phone in a takeout order. But getting a delicious meal on the table any night of the week doesn’t have to be a grind. Case in point: This Pork Fried Rice recipe. It preps in just 15 minutes — and it speeds to your table faster than takeout.

Plus, we have a test kitchen trick that makes it even easier: Ever wonder how they get those strips of scrambled egg so light and delicate? Simply pour no more than two beaten eggs into your skillet (if making more, cook in batches). Now tilt the pan and swirl in a circular motion until the mixture completely covers the bottom in a thin layer. Then cook until set but not browned. That way, it’ll be a cinch to roll without cracking. That’s all there is to it. Watch our video to see how easy it is. Then send a comment.
