Leftovers Part II: Friday Night Rice

So, this is what happened to the rest of the pork joint:

This recipe is called Barney's Monday Night Rice, and very good it is too - much scrummier than the raw ingredients suggest. And healthier and tastier than anything you'd get from a takeaway. Barney is clearly a genius.

What I particularly like about this recipe that it uses leftovers and store-cupboard ingredients. I didn't have to buy anything in specially. I did, however, boil some rice first and then throw it in to be stir-fried rather than use leftover/ready-cooked, but that's not too much of a hassle. 

This recipe is well-deserving of its 5 stars on BBC Good Food!


  1. Yep, I sometimes make rice in the rice cooker just to have it in a recipe that calls for "leftover" rice. :)

  2. This sounds lovely, will give this a whirl - Happy new year - hope you're well. Lucie x

  3. Mmm looks great. I cook with rice a lot and looking forward to giving this a try :) - Cathy Pieroz at Ray White Alexandra Hills
