Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 2 boneless pork chops
  • 6-7 cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 shallot chopped
  • 2 green onions sliced plus more for garnish
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 3 cups cooked long grain rice
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas thawed
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat 1/2 tbsp. sesame oil and 1/2 tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Generously season pork chops with kosher salt and ground black pepper. Brown each side. When cooked through, remove from heat and allow to cool, reserving the drippings in the pan. When cool enough to handle, chop the pork into bite-size pieces and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, add the remaining 1/2 tbsp. sesame oil and 1/2 tbsp. olive oil and heat to medium-high. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add the shallot, green onions, garlic and ginger and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped pork, rice, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and thawed peas and stir to combine.
  4. Push the rice mixture to one side of the skillet. Pour the eggs into the cleared side of the skillet and scramble. Once mostly scrambled, break up with spatula or spoon and combine eggs and rice mixture. Season with kosher salt and ground black pepper, if necessary.
  5. Garnish with sliced green onions, if desired.
