Sweetheart fried rice

Yep, it's pink fried rice! How cute is this! I remember my mom used to cook this for me when I was a little boy trying to trick me to eat veggie mixed in the fried rice. I adapted her recipe a bit to create my very own signature dish. Try it, it's yummy! You will find out what makes it pink!


  • 1 cup of sliced pork loin

  • 3 Chinese pork sausages - fried and chopped

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 tablespoons of Yen Ta Fo paste (available at good Asian groceries)

  • 1/3 spring onion chopped

  • 1 garlic clove crushed

  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

  • 1/3 cup of brown onion chopped

  • 3 cups of refrigerated steamed rice


  • 1.

    Heat a frying pan on a medium heat. Add oil and garlic. Stir until the garlic becomes yellow and releases its aroma.

  • 2.

    Add pork and mix with the garlic until almost cooked (over cook the pork will make the texture very hard and not very nice to eat).

  • 3.

    Break the egg in the middle of the pan. Let it sit until the egg almost cooked then mix it all together.

  • 4.

    Add rice and the Yen Ta Fo paste. This is usually a key ingredient for a Yen Ta Fo Thai noodle soup. It tastes like sweet and sour sauce. Combine all ingredients together. Then add spring onion and onion in. Stir until well combined.

  • 5.

    Add the Chinese pork sausages.


Serve while it is still warm. I like to have it with mixed chopped chilli, lime juice and fish sauce. Yum!
