Breaking Out The Wok!

I dont know when the last time I used my wok was but I was happy to break it out again for tonights dinner.  Tonight I made Pork Fried Rice - it was so good.  The kids loved it too!  Sweet Girl even said it smelled better than a Chinese restaurant. Heres the recipe (adapted from Southern Living). Also, you don't need a wok any pan will do.

Pork Fried Rice

1lb boneless pork chops, sliced
1/2 tsp of pepper
1 Tbsp sesame oil, divided
3/4 shredded or diced carrots
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 green onions, chopped
1 Tbsp butter
2 lg eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups cooked rice, I used Jasmine rice
1/2  cup frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup soy sauce
Season pork with pepper and cook in1 1/2 tsp sesame oil over medium heat until cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove from skillet.
Heat remaining 1 1/2 tsp oil in skillet and cook the carrots and onions until soft, about 3 minutes.  Add the green onions and cook for 1 more minute.  Remove from pan and wipe clean.
Add the butter to pan and melt.  Add eggs to skillet and cook, without stirring, 1 minute.  Gently draw eggs away from sides of pan to form large pieces. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 1 minute or until thickened.  Add rice, pork , carrots and onions back to pan and cooked until heated through.  Stir in soy sauce and Enjoy!!
