After a long and busy day at work, I felt like eating something yummy and ‘homey’ :) I had some leftover rice and some ‘char siu’ (barbecued meat) in the fridge so I thought the easiest and fastest meal I could make is fried rice :) I used to always joke about how much my dad loves to cook and how he would take the trouble to cook even though he’s just alone at home. I can see the resemblance in me over these few years. haha! I got some chinese leek from the market. Of course you can use other vege like long beans or ‘bak choy’.
2 bowls of cooked rice
100g-150g ‘char siu’ or ‘siu yuk’ or pork (diced)
120g chinese leek (cut to about 2 inches in length)
