Last year, when I posted my recipe for Fried Rice with Bacon, Corn, Eggs, and Green Onions, I mentioned that I was inspired by seeing Henry Chan's Food Videos' brief clip of the Daikokuya Noodle & Rice-Bowl folks ladling a spoonful of their fabulously porky ramen broth into the fried rice just before serving. That spoonful of broth added just at the end gives so much flavor to the fried rice that I just had to try it myself.
Fried Rice with Pork, Corn, and a Ladle of Ramen Broth
For about four servings, you'll need:
2 cups cooked rice, preferably day-old and refrigerated. (If you're making the rice fresh, lessen the water by 1/4 cup.)
About 1 cup diced Buta no kakuni (Japanese braised pork) or char siu (Chinese barbecued pork)
2-3 eggs, scrambled or use my scrambled egg omelet technique
1 steamed corn, kernels sliced off or 1/2 can, drained
2-3 stalks green onions, sliced thinly
2-3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 ladle of homemade ramen broth
I made this with my homemade Chinese barbecued pork, but I'd highly encourage making the Japanese braised pork instead. Dice the pork and set aside.
Slice off the kernels of one ear of steamed corn and thinly slice about 3 green onions. Set aside.
Turn the heat on to high because everything will cook very quickly in the wok. Drizzle a bit of oil, scramble three eggs. Remove the eggs from the wok and set aside. Then add a little more oil again and saute the pork with 2 cloves finely minced garlic.
Then add the corn and green onions and saute until the green onions are slightly softened. Add the rice and mix thoroughly. Add the eggs back in. Then quickly spoon in one ladle of homemade ramen broth.
Toss and serve.
