Are you a fan of fried rice meals? If so, you have probably ordered this before: the pork chao fan. It’s a simple yet tasty fried rice that’s got a little of both kangkong and ground pork for extra flavor.
It’s an easy recipe! This inspired fried rice recipe is made super tasty with ground pork and kangkong, plus oyster sauce for extra umami flavor. You can even level it up with some scrambled eggs or chunks of Chinese sausage for a heartier all-in-one fried rice meal. No need for siomai on top unless you want some.
You can also serve this with more kangkong, simply steamed or sautéed with sesame oil and chili powder, fried tokwa, and some fried luncheon meat cubes on a stick for that resto dining experience at home.
