Health(ier) Pork Fried Rice

Take the Pork Recipe from 2 weeks ago or you can use a standard roast, or you can just cube some pork and fry it up - your call.

1.5 lbs of pork - cubed
2 white onions - diced
1 red pepper - diced
1 green pepper - diced
2 cups of brown rice
4 tablespoons of low salt soy sauce
1 egg - optional

1. Get 2 cups of water and bring it to a boil (add salt before) - add rice and cook as directed
2. In a frying pan or Wok (the wok is nice because it is BIG), splash some olive oil in the pan, heat on medium low and add the onions. Cook until the onions are translucent and then add the pork. Cover the pan and allow to cook for 5 minutes.
3. Add the peppers. If you are going to use the egg. Put all of the other stuff to one side of the pan and crack the egg into the pan. Allow the egg to sit for a minute and then start to break it apart with you cooking spoon or spatula. Move it into the overall mix of vegetables and pork.
4. When the rice is done, add it into the frying pan and and add the soy sauce and some hot sauce if you want. Mix it around and let the rice get fried up. Stir occasionally.
5. Add Salt and Pepper to taste.
