Pulled Pork Fried Rice FAQ

Do you have to make this on a Blackstone?

Nope! If you don’t have a gas griddle or if the weather isn’t cooperating for outdoor cooking, you can make this in a wok on the stovetop. It’ll turn out better if you have a gas stove, but I’ve made fried rice on electric before too. If you have an electric stove, the key is to work in smaller batches so you can maintain the heat in the wok.

Can I use different types of rice?

Yes, while jasmine rice is preferred for its fragrance and texture, you can use any cold, pre-cooked rice you have.

What’s the best way to store and reheat leftovers?

With rice, you need to be careful to cool it and get it in the fridge promptly after cooking. Keep it above 140°F, and refrigerate the leftovers as soon as you’re done eating.

When prepping your rice for fried rice, spread out your hot, steamed rice onto a large sheet pan and place into the fridge or freezer until it is chilled. You can then store it in a more space-friendly way in a big plastic baggie or storage container.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 cups of mixed peas and carrots
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 2 cups leftover smoked pulled pork
  • 6 cups cold jasmine rice
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce

  1. Preheat your gas griddle over high heat. Let it get really hot. 10-15 minutes is usually necessary to ensure it is fully preheated.
  2. Put 1 tablespoon of oil and a few shakes of sesame oil on the griddle. Stir fry peas, carrots, onion, and pulled pork until hot. Move to the side of the griddle to keep warm. If you can, reduce the temperature on that side of the griddle to medium-low.
  3. Put another tablespoon of oil down and several more shakes of sesame oil. Stir fry cold rice over high heat for 3-4 minutes. Stir in pork and vegetables.
  4. Add soy sauce to taste and stir well. Scoot rice over to one side of griddle and quickly cook the scrambled eggs. Gently mix eggs into rice mixture.
