"I amped it up by adding extra veggies and an extra egg. I had one lonely pork chop, so I diced it up fairly small. Used leftover rice from chinese take out. Definately needed extra soy sauce, I just kept adding it a little at a time until it tasted right. Fast & easy as can be, fresh tasting and uses up leftovers. The small amount I had leftover i nuked the next day, yummo. This is a keeper in my book, everyone liked it."

"Loved this - perfect way to use up leftover porkchops that I always seem to have. And whenever we have leftover rice, I toss it in the freezer in 1 cup portions, so there's always cooked rice on hand to quickly thaw. The only thing I changed was to use only 2 eggs and only 1 Tbsp of the oil. My husband said it could have used more oil, so I might increase next time, but I thought it was fine without both tablespoons. Definitely will be a keeper and in my meal planning when I have leftover pork or chicken."
