This is my entry in to the Kid Food Collective Blog Hop. The idea is that the members all create a dish and we vote for our favourite creation. The winner gets to choose the next challenge!

So, my entry is a cheat…I didn’t make it. This is a Mr FMM recipe. But it is sooo yummy and fits the bill perfectly.
It was the evening after a big night out with the girls, I was feeling tired, lazy and craving something naughty but I didn’t want the guilt (or that horrid thing when you wake up in the middle of the night really thirsty because of all the salt and MSG). Cue Mr FMM to the rescue with this Chinese dish – the little guy loves it, it is satisfying and comforting but so much better for you (and cheaper) than the take-away version.
Satay pork and egg fried rice
For the pork (we also make this for chicken, salmon, quorn)
- Pork shoulder cut in to chunks
- Approx 2 tablespoons 100% Peanut butter (I used Whole Earth)
- 1 tsp low salt soy sauce
- 1tsp fish sauce
- A squeeze of lime juice
- Garlic (we use about 1/2 tsp but your call here)
- 1 tsp mild curry powder
- 1 tsp ground coriander
Put all your ingredients in a bowl with a splash of water and marinate your meat for as long as you can. At least an hour but overnight is amazing. Put on skewers, or on a flat tray and grill for approx 15 minutes. You can also add chilli flakes to taste.
For the rice (a nice, short list here)
- 1 mug of basmati rice (for every mug of rice use 2 mugs of water to cook)
- 1 Spring onion
- Mild curry powder
- Dried curry leaves (optional)
- 2 eggs
Cook your rice. Drain and add to a wok or big pan with the veggies. Tilting the pan to keep the rice separate, add your eggs as if you are scrambling them. Keep stirring. When they are close to being cooked, mix in with your rice. Add in your spices. That’s it!
Honestly, if you fancy something delicious and easy, give this a go. It has quickly become a go-to dish for us. It feels like you are having a real treat without so many of the nasties and salt overkill.
If you have leftovers and you are not sure how to store them safely – check out this post for guidance.
