Cooking Pork Sausage Fried Rice

I got quite a lot of leftover from the Friday night's dinner. As I did not estimate the portion well, we both could not finish all the food that I cooked. Even my hungry man also gave up. In the end, I had a box of white rice, french beans and black pepper beef leftover. We decided to eat them again for Saturday lunch and make fried rice from the white rice leftover.

After breakfast, we shopped again for the fried rice ingredients. I just needed some Chinese pork sausages and carrots. The rest of the ingredients are from last night's dinner leftover and anything available in the fridge.

Pork Sausage Fried Rice: First attempt.

Our Saturday Lunch Menu: Heated black pepper beef, pork sausage fried rice, fresh papaya and orange cuts and apple juice with aloe vera chuncks.

Pork Sausage Fried Rice Ingredients:
  • Cold steamed white rice
  • 1 Chopped yellow onion and garlics
  • 1 Chopped carrot
  • Chopped French beans (I chopped my sauteed french beans leftover)
  • Chopped Chinese pork sausage
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Salty soy sauce
  • Fish sauce
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Cooking oil
I always get nervous reading the first expression and hearing the comments from whoever who eats my food creation. To learn whether the dish I cook tastes good or no is always a daunting experience for me. Once I hear that it taste good, I feel such a great relief and happiness. If it tastes no good, then for a moment I feel like I should not cook anymore, which is bad. People learn and make mistakes anyway.

Anyway, once my boyfriend ate first bite of my fried rice, he was quiet for a bit and finally said it was very nice. I was elated. He said the fried rice's taste alone was already so good. However as it had to be eaten with the tasty black pepper beef, the beef's pepper strong taste killed the fried rice's taste. Thanks to the pork sausage which gives a very sweet and strong palate to the fried rice, this fried rice was indeed an easy and simple dish to prepare yet taste pretty good. Too bad the soy sauce made the fried rice looked a bit wet.

He told me that I can actually cook but often have no confidence. Well, I think I can cook a bit as I often watched my Mom cooks in her kitchen at home. But, I never really practice cooking. I'm very lazy to prepare a dish for one single person. I only cook once every few months, most of the time only when my boyfriend visits me. Moreover, I always feel that cooking sometimes needs luck too!

This weekend, I am happy cooking, especially for my special guest who drove all the way from Malaysia just to see me.
