1/2 lb. cooked and chopped (pork, poultry, beef, shrimp/prawns, or seafood)
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
+ an additional (2) tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce
2 green onions, chopped
4 cups cooked white rice
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


In a small bowl, season the pork with the 1 tablespoon soy sauce, sesame oil, and pepper.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the beaten eggs, and saute to scrambled point, and remove to plate and set aside.

Increase heat to medium-high heat under skillet (add more olive oil if need be), and saute garlic for 30 seconds. Toss in the pork (or meat or seafood), and mushrooms, sautéing until heated through. Stir in chicken broth, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, green onions, and rice. Cook and saute until the rice has broken apart and is evenly coated with the sauce. Pour the reserved broken scrambled egg pieces over rice, and toss to combine.  Taste for seasonings, adding kosher salt and ground pepper to taste, if needed - and serve.  Enjoy!


Tip: There are numerous variations to this recipe, i.e., changing out the veggies and/or adding them...feel free to experiment to your desired pallet!
