Pork Fried Rice

Here's an idea for using leftover Pork Chops
We had Rosemary Pork Chops on Sunday and then with the 2 or 3 pork chops I had left over, I chopped them up while they were still warm put them in a container to use the next day.  It is ALWAYS easier to cut-up or de-bone meat when it is warm instead of the next day from the fridge.  It may take a few extra minutes the night before while you're trying to clean up, but it is WELL worth the time the next day.

2-3 leftover pork chops de-boned and chopped up
One Rice Pilaf recipe (see below)
1/2 chopped onion
1 carrot shredded
1 cup frozen  broccoli cooked and chopped
1 tsp crushed rosemary

Put 1 TBSP olive oil in a skillet, sweat onions, add meat, broccoli, carrots and rosemary.  Mix together and stir fry for a few minutes.  Add rice and combine all together.

Rice Pilaf:
2 cups Long grain rice
4 cups water
4 heaping tsp chicken bouillon granules
3 TBSP lemon juice
2 TBSP butter

Another kind of rice that is REALLY good in general, but especially with this recipe is Jasmine Rice.  You can find it next to the regular rice.  It has a very floral aroma.  Just cook according to the directions and you can add the bouillon and lemon juice and butter too.
