Pork Adobo Paksiw with Jeprox and Shrimp Fried Rice

Pork Adobo Paksiw with Jeprox and Shrimp Fried Rice is more than complete for breakfast or even brunch. It is the ideal Pinoy Breakfast, if you have a big day ahead. The combination of all the dishes blended well. I enjoyed this meal and I had enough energy for more than half of the day. I even skipped lunch since I still was not hungry and just had a light snack in the afternoon. I guess that eating like a king during breakfast really pays well.

Pork Paksiw with Jeprox and Fried Rice Breakfast

I first tried the pork adobo paksiw and the fried rice. By the way, the pork was really tender and the dish was magnificent — eating it with fried rice makes me eat more, so  I had to control myself. The crispy fried daing (jeprox) gave the entire meal that nice crispy texture. It was some kind of intermission for me because I had it after every spoonful of pork adobo paksiw and rice. Imagine enjoying the mild flavor of the jeprox that was made spicy because of the vinegar slowly spreading in your mouth as you indulge in it — and how can we forget the nice crispy texture that literally creates a sound in every bite. This has been an awesome Pinoy breakfast for me.

Let us not take the the hard boiled egg out of the picture. I finished off the entire Pinoy breakfast meal with a piece of perfectly boiled egg. This helps balance the flavor and all the excitement that is going-on in my palate. I also had an extra boost of protein and energy. Some of you prefer to eat dishes with sauces. I like too, but I tend to eat more rice though. If you want to make the hard boiled egg taste even better, I recommend that you turn it to a dish called Sarciadong Itlog (boiled egg with sauce). It is quick to prepare, easy and yummy. By the way, you can do the same thing with daing (dried fish), the recipe is called sarciadong daing or fried dried fish with sauce.

Yummy Pork Paksiw with Jeprox and Fried Rice Breakfast Meal

Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe

I am a fan of Fried Rice. One version that I like most is the Filipino Fried Rice (sinangag). Yang Chow Fried Rice and Adobo Fried Rice are also on the top of my favorite fried rice list. Our featured fried rice recipe, Shrimp Fried Rice, is also something that I often make for breakfast or lunch when I have tiny shrimp available.

Shrimp and Veggie Fried Rice_

This Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe makes use of little frozen shrimp. I like to use these types of shrimp because these are tastier compared to the larger varieties. I also like the idea that these are cheaper, most of the time. Shrimp fried rice also makes use of frozen green peas, carrots, and butter.

Preparing Shrimp Fried Rice is quick and easy. I use leftover white rice if I can, and I make sure that the rice variety is not sticky; long grain rice works best for me. I simple mash the rice gently using my hands and add some garlic, onion powder and some salt. Instead of using oil, I use butter for this recipe.

Shrimp Fried Rice_

Butter is an important ingredient for shrimp fried rice, but you have to understand that there is a proper way to handle butter so that it can be in harmony with the other ingredients. Butter should also be cooked in low to medium heat to prevent it from getting burnt. The peas and carrots are great additions that make this fried rice dish taste and look better.

Tapsilog Recipe

Tapsilog is a meal composed of Filipino beef jerky, garlic fried rice, and fried egg. The name was derived from the ingredients. The beef jerky is known as “Tapa”, garlic fried rice is called “Sinangag”, and the Filipino term for egg is “Itlog” – thus TapSiLog.

Tapsilog Recipe

Tapsilog is a popular meal in the Philippines. The meal is commonly consumed during breakfast. However, it can be consumed anytime of the day or night. due to the existence of several eateries (these are known as Tapsihan or Tapsi House) and/or restaurants serving this food. There are even 24-hour eateries that serve Tapsilog along with other delicious dishes such as Tosilog, Arroz Caldo, and Goto.

This Tapsilog recipe is a combination of our homemade beef tapa recipe and sinangag recipe. I think that most of you does an awesome job in frying eggs, so I did not cover the “How to fry an egg” part.

Tapsilog

I am a big fan of Tapsilog; I think that I mentioned this before in one of my post here. The best Tapsilog – as far as I am concerned – is the one with tapang kabayo (horse meat).

Tuyo Fried Rice

I love to eat sinangag for breakfast; it pairs great with tocino, longganisa, and hotdog. I also enjoy eating tuyo. If I get a chance, I make a type of sinangag with tuyo flakes in it – I call it tuyo fried rice.

Tuyo Fried Rice

Tuyo fried rice tastes really good. I eat it with more fried tuyo, daing, or danggit. Sometimes, I just eat it by itself and pour a teaspoon of vinegar to it. It might sound weird, but it works for me because I can eat my favorite fried fish with rice without doing the extra effort.

Have tried making tuyo fried rice before? If not, I encourage you to try it. The process is fairly easy and quick.

Fried Rice

All of us have our own concept of fried rice. In my case, I had this notion ever since I was a kid. Fried rice to me is not as simple as it sound; it is a medley of different ingredients collaborating together to produce colorful and great tasting rice dish. I held on this idea for the longest time and it influenced me in many ways.

Fried Rice

As you might have noticed, I am a huge fan of ham and egg. I try to incorporate these ingredients in my dishes when I have the chance. I guess that it was also a reason why I liked this fried rice concept.

If you like fried dishes such as fried pork chop, fried chicken, or even fried fish, this fried rice recipe goes well with them. It is also perfect as a stand-alone meal because it has all the components of it. Before I forget, I just had lumpiang Shanghai with my fried rice for dinner and I thought that the pair was amazing.

Tosilog Recipe

Tosilog is a popular Filipino breakfast meal. The name tosilog was derived from the different components of the meal which are: Tocino (cured pork), Sinangag (Filipino garlic fried rice), and Sunny-side up egg. Tosilog is best eaten with a spicy vinegar dip.

Preparing or cooking tosilog means making each of its components. You can make your own homemade tocino by following our tocino recipe. I added the link in the tosilog recipe below. Sinangag or Filipino Fried rice is quick and easy to make. There is also a link below, which will guide you on how to cook sinangag. I intentionally cooked the sinangag for the second time with the residue of the tocino so that it can be tastier. As for the sunny-side-up egg, I think that this is something that you handle.

Fried rice is a rice-based dish with additional ingredients added, such as eggs, meat, seafood and vegetables. In many parts of Africa, fried rice is made with beef and chicken pieces.

Health Benefits of Fried Rice

how to make fried rice

Rice, as the main ingredient of this dish, contains plenty of minerals and vitamins. Whether it is brown or white, short grain or long grain, rice is packed with healthy fats, fiber and a bit of protein. Rice also has decent amounts of calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium. This means that fried rice is a filling dish that can help your bones, muscle, blood pressure, energy and metabolism.

If you’re on a low-carb diet, you might want to restrict your portions of fried rice. A cup of traditional fried rice can have anything between 200 and 300 calories. It really depends on what other ingredients you add to the dish, and what kind of oil or butter you use to fry the rice. Brown or wild rice is always best. Vegetables are also healthy add-ons because they are low in calories.

How to Make Fried Rice with Egg (basic)

It is advisable to keep it simple if it’s the first time you’re learning how to make fried rice. To make a medium portion that serves four, you will need:

  • 4 cups cooked rice, preferably white
  • 2 raw whole eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons  canola oil
  • 1-2 tbsp. soy sauce

Step 1:

Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a pan over medium heat until hot. Add beaten eggs and cook until they are scrambled but still wet.

Step 2:

In a separate pan, heat one tablespoon of oil or butter and make sure the pan is well-coated. Add rice and sauté for 3 minutes.

Step 3:

If you prefer using soy sauce in your recipe, stir it in with the rice. You can also use whichever seasoning you like best. Add the eggs and stir-fry until the meal is heated through. Serve and enjoy.

Sinangag Recipe

Sinangag or Garlic Fried Rice has been a favorite part of every Filipino breakfast. Sinangag can go well with many dishes regardless if these are fried dishes or stews. I personally like to have sinangag with fried salted dried fish such as tuyo, daing, and danggit. Of course, sinangag is also best with tapa, tocino, longganisa, and corned beef.

Sinangag

Although it seems simple to cook sinangag, the success of this fried rice relies on the type and condition of rice that you will use. Based on my experience, it is best to use the non sticky rice varieties. Jasmine rice or long grain rice works good for me, and it is even better if these are left over rice from the previous day. You see, leftover rice will be less sticky and it is not that soft compared to newly cooked rice.

Another thing that you should be cognizant of is the ratio of oil vs. rice. Make sure not to put too much oil as it will make the entire dish oily and unpleasant. It is now time for you to make sinangag. Let me know if you have questions by posting a comment below.
