Are you a fan of fried rice meals, especially when you are out? If so, you have probably ordered this before: the pork chao fan.

What is Pork Chao Fan Rice 

This pork chao fan is more popularly known as a fried rice dish from the fast food chain Chowking. It's a simple yet tasty fried rice dish that's big on flavor yet is an easy recipe! This is made super tasty with ground pork and kang kong, plus soy sauce and oyster sauce for extra umami flavor. You can even make it even better with some scrambled eggs or chunks of Chinese sausage for a heartier all-in-one fried rice meal. You have your ulam and rice in one bowl! 

How To Serve Pork Chao Fan Rice 

At the fast food chain, these are commonly served topped with either pork or beef siomai, lumpiang Shanghai, or fried siomai. However, you don't need to add these specific toppings, unless desired, because the beauty of making this at home is that you are your own chef and can serve it with your choice of toppings.

You can serve this with those toppings of course or you can change things up a bit. Serve it with even more kang kong as a side dish, simply steamed or sautéed with sesame oil and chili powder, or with fried tokwa, slices of fried luncheon meat, or waygu cubes on a stick for that resto dining experience at home.

To make this pork chao fan rice, it starts with simple aromatic ingredients: onion and garlic. These are sautéed until softened and fragrant. This is followed by ground pork which needs to be cooked until no longer pink before adding the kang kong and then rice.

Toss the rice together so the seasonings are evenly distributed before serving it while still hot with your favorite Pinoy ulam recipes
