Pork Fried Rice - Sierra Leonean Recipe

It is drawing close to exams and my assignments are all due in a few weeks, so I will not be posting as often as I used to but once a week should be fine till I get myself sorted out.  Anyway, I made this modified version of the Sierra Leonean fried rice the other day and thought I should share it with you.  I have added ketchap manis (sweet soy sauce) which we don't normally add to this recipe in Sierra Leone but I tried it once and the boys loved it so much so that I have been doing it this way since.

The ingredients I used are:
1kg pork shoulder butt steak (cut into cubes), 4 cups rice, 2 large carrots (chopped) 1 large brown onion (chopped) 1/2 small cabbage (chopped) 1 cup frozen peas, 1 cup frozen corn, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 4 cloves garlic, 2 tsp stock powder, 1 habanero chili, 2 tbs sweet soy sauce, 
Season pork with stock and garlic
Steam to get rid of all the water(took about 10 minutes)
In another pot over high heat, brown the meat
Now add the onion and chili and fry for 5 minutes
Add carrots and fry for another 5 minutes
Add rice and soy sauce, mix well and fry for 6-8 minutes
Now lower heat and add four cups of hot water, cover and let it cook for 10 minutes.
Add peas and corn, cover and let it cook for 8 more minutes
Finally stir through cabbage, let it cook for 3 minutes
There you have it,.  Easy and delicious!!  Enjoy

    1. Thank you Jayne. Funny you should mention the sleep side of it. I was just telling one of my work colleagues how I slept half way through my online tute. I have asked my tutor for the slides anyway, so I should be fine.
