Pork and Vegetable Ponzu Fried rice is the bomb!  It takes just minutes to make and the ingredients can be changed to suit your taste. How good is that?

This recipe is a lighter version of the fried rice that I usually make. While browsing the aisles in the grocery store a while back I discovered Ponzu. It is a soy based sauce, but lighter than regular soy sauce.It is also less salty tasting  and has a citrus flavor.  As far as the Oyster Sauce… you will be amazed at the difference it makes.

Making fried rice is a great way to use up leftover meat and veggies from your fridge. Experiment with the different combinations! Green beans, asparagus, broccoli and caramelized onions are some of our favorites.
