Chinese Pork and Rice

We found this recipe in a really old Betty Crocker cookbook. My husband lived in Taiwan for two years and he is always trying to replicate the delicious Chinese food he ate there. This recipe where the rice is fried in oil comes as close as he can get to making fried rice like they do in Asia. We really liked the taste of this rice but next time I think I want to add more vegetables, maybe slivered carrots or small broccoli pieces.

Chinese Pork and Rice
Betty Crocker's Good and Easy Cookbook
(I don't know the year as the title page is missing but the book is old and the pictures are definitely retro.)

2/3 c uncooked rice
2 T cooking oil
1 t salt
1 1/2 c boiling water
1 bouillon cube
2 t soy sauce
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 c diced cooked pork

Cook rice in hot oil until golden brown. Add salt, water, bouillon cube, soy sauce. Cover; cook 20 minutes. Add rest of ingredients and 1/4 cup more water, if necessary. Cover tightly, cook 10 minutes more.

(4 servings)

Thank you!! This is one of my favourite dishes from my childhood but my mother got rid of the cookbook many years ago. I've been trying to find or replicate it for years. I love the Internet!!

I used to have the cookbook with this recipe but couldn't find it. This is a favorite recipe for using leftover pork. So glad you put it on the Internet - I won't lose this recipe again!
