75: Arroz Frito / Fried Rice

3 cups white rice
4 1/2 cups water
3 Tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon ginger (fresh minced, or powdered)
1 pound smoked pork (boneless smoked pork chops that are pre-cooked)
6 eggs
3-4 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 bunches scallions

1. Boil the water, add the rice and let it cook over low heat for 30 minutes (do not add salt).
2. Let the rice cool completely.
NOTE: I used previously made killer white rice that I had frozen and it worked great.
3. Beat the eggs and make an omlette.
4. Cut the omlette into cubes.
5. Cut the pork into cubes.
6. Chop the scallions, including the green parts.
7. Heat the olive oil and fry the garlic cloves until golden brown.
8. Remove the garlic cloves.
9. Add the white rice that has completely cooled to room temperature.
10. Stir often so the rice does not stick to the pot.
11. When the rice starts to heat through, add the cubes of egg and pork, along with the ginger.
12. Slowly add the soy sauce, a Tablespoon at a time until the rice is fully coated.
13. Add the scallions on top.

Makes 8 servings.
