Tocino Chao Fan

The SM Supermarket near our place has been conducting cooking demos.  I decided to make one of the dishes I learned.  It was sponsored by CDO so I used their Young Pork tocino, but I guess any brand of sweet tocino would.  The rice dish was a hit with the Little Girl, I guess the combination of the sweet tocino with the salty fried rice was a winner for her. I guess the flavor combination of this dish is more to the liking of kids.  I personally found it to be just an okay dish.

Here is the recipe:
1/4 cup oil
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks leeks, chopped
1 pack frozen mixed vegetables 
1 pack pork tocino
4 cups cooked rice
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup oyster sauce

1. Cook tocino in a pan with a little water.  When the tocino changes color and is cooked, remove from pan and then chop into small pieces.

2. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok. Saute garlic, then add leeks. Stir for a a few seconds. Stir in the salt and pepper.

3. Add mixed vegetables (since we were running low on supplies I only added shredded cabbage, but preferably you can use carrots, bell pepper and green peas)  followed by the tocino.

4. Add in the rice and mix well.

5. Pour in the oyster sauce and mix until evenly seasoned.

6. Pour in the beaten eggs and quickly mix to spread. Heat through for five more minutes.

7.Then transfer to a platter, and serve hot.

Sarap!!! Pork tocino is a good substitute for Chinese chorizo.
