My children never like fried rice. They find it hard to swallow and very tasty, not something they want to eat for breakfast. But as they grow up they develop a certain taste for a variety of food (spicy food in particular). These days my youngest daughter Lily would call it “special breakfast”. She would, she would call her brother and tell him: Kuya Ruben, Nanay is making a special breakfast! When the truth is I just want to make use of some leftovers in the fridge. 😀 Ha ha ha…
I like how simple and positive they think of things around them, it’s so pure and true, like everything is well-intention. 🙂
Well… if you want to make a special fried rice for breakfast that is very tasty and kid friendly, you should try this Tinapa Fried rice, see below for the recipe. Enjoy! You are free to add fresh chopped tomatoes and some extra tinapa flakes and some greens (I added Baguio petchay here).
Which do you serve for breakfast a freshly cooked rice or a tasty fried rice?
Our family loves a freshly cooked rice every meal specially for breakfast, the kids find the rice from the rice cooker soft and easy to eat. Although we prefer a freshly cooked rice over fried rice I thought I whip it up a little and surprised them with a tasty fried rice for breakfast one weekend. I made them salted egg and dilis fried rice, we first had it at Kuya J in Cherry, Congressional Avenue when we dined it for dinner and we loooved it.
The recipe is easy to make and very, very tasty, I love how the salted egg adds texture to the rice, it made it fun and exciting to eat. 🙂 Here’s the recipe:
When I discovered chasu can be rice toppings too and you can make it with all the available recipes you can find in your local wet market. 🙂 I’m like: YES!
I’ve always known Chasu as ramen toppings. 🙂
Turns out it’s really nice with rice. The combination of chasu with spring onions and Japanese mayonnaise is really good.
This is originally Slide’s recipe since he’s obsessed with ramen, he learned to make it at home and play with the ingredients using locally available ingredients.
It’s something we should all add in our menu at home. 🙂
Chashu is a dish made of fat cuts of pork that are braised over low heat for a very long time. It’s like you dump everything in a pot with low heat and forget it for an hour. 😛
The kids love it, I think because of it’s sweet savory flavor and because of the fact that I served it in cute Japanese bowl with chopsticks. 🙂
Usually the recipe calls for pork belly or pork face but in this recipe I used pigue since that’s the only pork available in my freezer. The Japanese version of this recipe uses, Sake and Mirin but I’m saving my mirin to make sushi rice so it’s a bit untouchable. 😛 Slide uses Sprite sakto instead of mirin and sake and it works fine that’s why I thought I call this recipe, Pinoy Style. Chasu is really easy to make and you can find all the ingredients in your local wet market. Here’s the complete recipe:
