"This week, I made Quick and Easy Pork Fried Rice. I love this dish, so it was good for me to learn how to make it properly. For this recipe, I had big critics—a 6-year-old and a 16-year-old—but everyone loved it. The pork was so tender, and the sauce had a yummy sweet and sour flavor. The oyster and soy sauces mellowed out the chili garlic, but for those who like the heat, feel free to add a little bit more hot sauce. Don't be afraid to make substitutions if you don't have ingredients on hand. For example, I used dry edamame instead of frozen, and it added a nice crunch to the dish. Overall, this dish was really good—much better than any takeout I have ever had."
