Frugal Food | 中国翻炒 Chinese Stir Fry



Unsmoked bacon

Chinese leaves or white cabbage

Boiled rice

Canola Oil

Soya sauce

Chinese 5 Spice

Chopped spring onions

I doubt if this recipe is anything like genuine Chinese food but I enjoyed it! I put a few tablespoons of Canola oil into the wok and stir fried my chopped bacon; I used half a packet. Then I added the boiled rice and stirred constantly. The Chinese leaves should cook quickly but I used white cabbage and part cooked that. It cooked quickly (boiled) because it was finely chopped. The white cabbage is added about 2 minutes after the rice and keep stirring. Then add the chopped spring onion. I didn’t have spring onions either so used very finely chopped red onion. When everything looks cooked add  a tablespoon of soya sauce and sprinkle on the 5 spice; stir and cook another minute. Then serve; delicious!

Smile with tongue out

You can add any vegetables you want to, peas are good. You can also substitute the bacon for chopped pork or chicken. Have fun with your cooking.

In the UK, you can get the 5 spice from Asda (2 for £2.00)

  2. Hi Myfanwy,

    It tasted nice too. I was going to cook it again but couldn’t get gluten free soy sauce! It’s better with bean sprouts too. One day I’ll get all the ingredients I need at the same time!
