Alphabetic Recipes S — Stir-fried Rice with Pork; Jamaican Recipe

Today we have a classic Jamaican recipe for a traditional Asian-inspired method for using up leftover cooked pork and rice by stir-frying with eggs.

Today's is the twenty-second entry of my new series of Alphabetic recipes. Each day for the next month and more, I will be adding a new recipe linked to a different letter of the alphabet. As I collect recipes from all over the globe, and have lots of Welsh recipes, I am going to use a blend of the Welsh and English alphabets:

A | B | C | DE | F | Ff | G | H | I | J | K | L | Ll | M | N | O | P | Q | R | Rh | ST | U | V | W | X | Y | Z

so there will be 30 entries in total. As today is the twenty-second day in this series I am providing a recipe starting with the letter 'S'. This is a traditional recipe from Jamaica for a classic leftovers dish of pork, onion and rice stir-fried to heat through.

Stir-fried Rice with Pork Recipe

This is a traditional Jamaican recipe for a classic stir-fry of pork, celery, shallots, water chestnut and rice finished with a mix of egg, soy sauce, salt, sugar and chilli flakes.


80g shallots, sliced
80g celery, cut at a bias (ie diagonally)
300g roast pork, diced
1 tbsp garlic, finely minced
2 tbsp groundnut oil
450g cooked rice
200g water chestnuts, sliced
1/8 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
pinch of hot chilli flakes (or to taste)
3 tbsp soy sauce


Heat the groundnut oil in a wok or large pan. Add the onions, celery and pork and stir-fry for about 5 minutes, or until the shallots are just tender. Now add the rice and water chestnuts and stir to combine.

In a bowl, whisk together the egg, soy sauce, salt, sugar and chilli flakes. Stir this mixture into the meat and rice mix and stir-fry the resultant combination for about 3 minutes, or until the egg is set and all the ingredients are heated through.

Serve hot.
