New Recipe: Bacon & Veggie Fried Rice

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
Last week I was in the mood for hibachi, so I decided to bring the hibachi to my house by making my own fried rice. This dinner was very easy to make and only used two pots, so I saved time on dishes when I was done too. Plus it has so many delicious flavors that you will never want to go out for fried rice again!
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 pkg of bacon
  • 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 2-inch piece of ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 pkg frozen broccoli
  • 4 cups brown rice
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 eggs
  • In a large skillet cook bacon over medium/high heat until crisp and crunchy. Remember to pour the grease in a jar and not down the drain because it will clog your pipes. Transfer cooked bacon to a side plate. Using a knife, chop cooked bacon into smaller pieces and set aside.
  • In a pasta pot boil rice according to box/package directions and drain.
  • In the skillet used to make the bacon, add garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes and vegetable oil and cook on low for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. 
  • While garlic is cooking, microwave broccoli according to package directions. When broccoli is cooked, add it to the skillet and combine with garlic mixture. Cook for 3-4 minutes on medium low heat until broccoli crisps up a bit.
  • Add cooked rice, soy sauce, chicken broth and chopped bacon to broccoli skillet, mix well. Keep the stove top on medium low heat to heat mixture throughout. 
  • Push fried rice mixture to one side of the skillet and crack the eggs into the other side. Scramble eggs until set and then mix eggs into rice mixture.
  • Serve rice in bowls and enjoy!
