Pork Fried “Rice” (AIP/Paleo)

Pork Fried "Rice" (AIP/Paleo)

I hate to say it, but pork fried rice was almost a dietary staple for me in college. My, now husband, and I went to schools in different states and his school was in the middle of nowhere, the only nearby restaurant was this tiny Chinese food place near his apartment, so almost every time I went to visit him I got some pork fried rice for dinner. I had gone gluten free at that point but I had basically just subbed gluten contain grains for rice at every turn. Now that I haven’t eaten any rice in almost two years, that seems a little crazy.

I know many of you probably enjoyed the flavors of Chinese food in your former eating days so I decided to recreate this recipe favorite for you all. The flavor is really good and it definitely resembles that flavors of your past, only without all of that soy and those grains. This is a super easy dish and I think its one that will please your whole family, little ones included! I hope you enjoy!
