  • I use Uncle Ben's converted rice - cooked in the microwave. (Combine 2 1/2 cups hot tap water, 1 cup rice, and i desired,1 tsp. salt ad 1 Tbsp. butter in a 2-qt. microwave-safe casserole dish. Cover and cook on HIGH 5 minutes. Reduce to 50% power and cook for 20 min. or until most of water is absorbed. Remove from oven and let sit about 5 min.)

    FRIED RICE
    1 cup Uncle Ben's converted rice (cooked)
    2 cups chopped cooked pork (I use the stuff already chopped, and/or tiny salad shrimp)
    1/4 cup cooking oil
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/4 tsp. black pepper
    2 Tbsp. soy sauce
    1/2 cup chopped green onion
    (I also sometimes add some frozen veggies like peas, etc)

    Cook rice according to directions. Sirring constantly after each addition, fry pork in oil until coated and heated, about 1 min. Add eggs & pepper and fry over med. heat for 5 min. Add cooked rice and soy sauce. (and veggies) Fry about 5 min. Add onions on top.
