INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Tbsp grape seed oil
  • 3 eggs, beaten (organic, pasture raised if possible)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (minced or finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp ginger
  • 1.5 cups brown rice (dry)
  • 1 1/2 cups of peas (frozen)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup green cabbage, shredded and chopped
  • 1 small/medium size onion, chopped
  • 2 cups pork, chopped into bite size chunks (can also use chicken)
  • green onion (3 stalks, chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos (can also use Organic Tamari)
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1-2 tsp of sea salt 
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Clean hot sauce

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Cook rice according to package instructions (recommend doing so in advance).
  • In a wok (or large skillet) add grape seed oil over medium high heat.  Once warm add eggs and scramble quickly for about 2 minutes.  Set aside and cover to keep warm.
  • Add a little more oil to the pan if needed and cook white onions, pepper, cabbage, carrots and peas and cook for 4-5 minutes or until onions are translucent.  Add ginger and garlic and cook for another minute.  
  • Add pork (or chicken), eggs, cooked rice and combine.  Stir-in coconut aminos, salt, pepper (to taste) and sesame oil.  Top with green onions and drizzle with hot sauce, if desired.

NOTES:

  • Chop all veggies/meat into the same bite-size pieces.  Zucchini goes well with this dish too.  Use your fridge to inspire this meal (that is how I used the cabbage for this dish).
  • Time saving techniques:  batch cook rice in advance (I use my InstantPot), use leftover pork or chicken,  purchase shredded carrots, purchase minced ginger in jar.  
  • Clean up tip:  To reduce dishes use one of the bowls you will serve this dish in for the eggs while you're cooking the veggies/meat.
