Hello my dear friends!
Chow fan is a dish that became popular a long time ago in the Republic Of the Dominican Republic.
The Chinese migrations have influenced the customs in many countries. The interesting thing about Chinese food is, besides its variety, the fact that it adjusts its flavors to the countries where it has moved. It is for that reason that the Chinese food in the United States, or in Peru, to mention some, won’t taste the same as the Chinese food in Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico. And probably very different from Chinese food in China!
Dominicans today frequently enjoy “Chinese rice”, fried rice or “chow fan”. The Chinese have stood out for the economic, abundance and flavor of their plates. Today I share my version of the fried rice or “chow fan!”
The quantities will depend on how much rice you prepare. I used 1 pound of rice.
- White rice (prepare ahead)
- ¼ LB. Cauliflower.
- ¼ LB. Broccoli.
- Cabbage itched in pieces.
- ½ red bell pepper.
- ½ LB. pork fillet in very small squares.
- ½ LB. of chicken previously cooked.
- 1 small piece of very tiny chopped ginger.
- Grated Nutmeg.
- ½ bouillon cube.
- Soy sauce.
- 1 leek bush.
- A bit of salt (sometimes it is not necessary)
Put some oil to heat and when hot add the vegetables and meats. Also add the ginger and the bouillon cube. Allow to sear.
Once the vegetables and the meats are seared add the rice, mix and add some soy sauce. Grate some nutmeg, mix and rectify the salt.
Serve and add the chopped leek on top. It is a quick and delicious recipe. Especially useful when you have leftovers. I prepared this one with some roasted chicken I had left and some rice. I just added the vegetables and voila! It was tremendous.
