Shrimp, Chicken, Pork and Pancetta Fried Rice

If you like Chinese food and fried rice this recipe is an easy one. You can cook the entire dish in one pan or if you have one a wok (excluding the rice). Fried rice is made traditionally in a wok with steamed rice, vegetables and meat. The great thing about fried rice is you can make it with fresh ingredients or if you have any leftover meat you can also use the leftovers like roast chicken/steak or pork chops and it will usually taste just as good. Pork, chicken, shrimp and beef are always good additions to fried rice and if you aren’t a fan of meat you can improvise with your favourite vegetables. This recipe is made with a variety of meats and shrimp which complement each other well.

Fried rice can be eaten as a meal by itself. But, if you like to have more vegetables with your meal you can add your favourite vegetable side dish. I decided to add a little more greens and made some Gai Lan (aka Chinese broccoli). I simply pan fried them with olive oil garlic and a 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce for approximately 5 minutes.
