Apple-y Pork Fried Rice

In keeping with my theme of "I don't know what kind of blog I want to have, so I'll just put anything on it", here is another new family favorite recipe.

Apple-y Pork Fried Rice

You'll need:

Brown rice

Vegetable broth

1 bottle of hard apple cider

1 tsp. olive oil

2 servings pork tenderloin
1/2 white onion
3 garlic cloves

whatever veggies you have around- I had frozen green beans and leftover sauteed kale

1 Tbsp. coconut oil

In rice cooker, combine:

1 cups brown rice

1 1/2 cup vegetable broth

1/2 cup hard apple cider

In cast iron skillet or other oven safe skillet:

Combine remaining hard cider, onion, garlic and olive oil. Simmer at medium high heat until cider is reduced by half. Once cider is reduced, add pork. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side. Put skillet in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, pull skillet out. Remove pork, cut into squares and set aside. Add veggies and coconut oil to skillet, cover and let warm at medium-low heat. Now all you have to do is stir every few minutes until the rice is done.

Once the rice cooker finishes, add rice and pork to skillet to fluff and heat through. And...that's it!

The resulting dinner is super tasty- a fresh, nutty and fruity version of fried rice. And my favorite part is that this literally came from that pre-payday "dang it, what on earth do I have to eat?" dilemma.
