How do you make Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice?

Pork fried cauliflower rice is an easy lunch idea that only takes 32 minutes to cook. Let’s go through the steps together. 

First, heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a cast-iron (or similarly heavy) skillet over medium heat. Then add onions, carrots, and peas. Stir occasionally and cook for 8 minutes until the onions are tender. Stir in ginger and garlic and let the vegetables cook for 2 more minutes. Once done, transfer to a medium-sized bowl. Now it’s time to cook the pork. 

Chop the pork into half-inch pieces and increase the heat under the skillet to medium-high heat. Add another tablespoon of sesame oil to the skillet and brown the pork in the oil for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put cooked pork with the onions, peas, and carrots. Cook your beaten eggs in the same skillet for 4 minutes while stirring. Put the eggs with the pork and veggies. Finally, add the rest of the sesame oil to the skillet to cook and mix the cauliflower rice, pork eggs, and vegetables together. Pour coconut aminos over the fried rice, mix well, and cook for 5 minutes.

Other tips for making Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice:

  • We use a ready-to-heat cilantro lime cauliflower rice, but you can make your own. 

  • Use chilled rice if you can because chilled rice fries better than warm rice. 

  • Fry with butter instead of (or with) sesame oil for crisp, tastier, and brown-colored fried rice. 

  • Substitute sesame oil for oyster sauce for additional acidity, or use the oyster sauce with sesame oil.

  • Finely dice your scallions on a sharp angle. 

  • Find a preserved Chinese vegetable mix of salted radishes and mustard greens for a saltier bite.
