Instructions
Fried Pork
  1. In a large bowl mix the diced Pork with the Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Cumin, Salt and Black Pepper. Set aside to marinate while you cook the Rice
  2. After the Rice is cooked. Return the Large Skillet to the burned over High Heat and add 2 TB of Vegetable Oil. Then add the Pork Mixture. Cook until browned and no longer pink.
  3. Add the Onion, Jalapeno, Corn and Peas. Toss well and allow to cook until the Onion just start to turn translucent. Then add the Rice Mixture and again toss well.
  4. Let the mixture sit and cook for 2-3 minutes so that the mixture next to the pans surface can develop a little bit of a char. Then turn over in sections to allow more of the mixture to char. Repeat one more time then plate
Rice
  1. Add the Oil to a large Skillet over high heat. Add the Rice and stir frequently until the Rice has developed a golden color
  2. Stir in the Tomato Sauce, Salt, Garlic, Cumin and Black Pepper. Then stir in the Chicken Broth. Allow the mixture to come to a boil then cover, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the Rice and move the Rice to large bowl. Start cooking the Pork (step 2 above)
Plating
  1. Place a mound of the Pork Fried Rice on a plate. Garnish with your choice of a Fried Egg (the runny yolk when you cut it open adds great moisture to the dish), Diced Tomatoes, Sliced Avocado, Chopped Cilantro and/or Diced Green Onions. A drizzle of Hot Sauce or Mexican Creme is also recommended
