Yang Chow Fried Rice

Yang Chow Fried Rice
Yang Chow Fried Rice is a Chinese char siu (Chinese barbecue) flavored fried rice. Thin slices of roast pork are added to the stir fried rice with the usual scrambled eggs and vegetables. Chinese style fried rice are usually stir fried at high heat. Of course the roast pork which is the main ingredients for this fried rice would not be readily available to most Pinoy homes, not unless you live near the China town or near a Chinese restaurant that sell char siu. As substitute use commercial Chinese sauce that are sold at most supermarket.

Yang Chow Fried Rice - Char Siu Sauce

Lee Kum Kee Sauces are the more popular brand in the market, their char siu sauce are available in bottles or in sachets. On my version of yang chow fried rice I substituted the Chinese roast pork with liempo cut pork marinated in char siu sauce and pan fried before slicing into thin pieces. Ideally the marinated pork should have been barbecued but I did not have the luxury of time and all I needed was just a cup of it. Another tip is to use peanut oil if its available it really makes the difference. Now if you are craving for Chinese style fried rice you would not spend a fortune anymore, here is the recipe of my yang chow fried rice.
