  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and ground pork. Cook and stir until the garlic is golden brown. This is the color you want for maximum flavor, do not allow it to burn, or the flavor will be bitter.
  2. Stir in the cooked white rice, and season with garlic salt and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through and well blended, about 3 minutes. Serve and enjoy.

We had a ton of leftover sliced pork from a party this weekend and I wanted to find a recipe that included both pork and rice. This recipe fit the bill! I chopped up the pork and used way more...

This is definitely a filipino staple. Lola would also add some combination of onions, bacon, eggs, quail eggs, bean sprouts, bangus, chinese sausage (julienned), and/or frozen vegetables.

The perfect solution to leftover rice. I love garlic and this really was a flavorful side dish. If the rice is not in an airtight container in the fridge, it may harden. I beat in an egg to make...

Like other reviewers, I omitted the pork, and the recipe still turned out very well. I used margarine instead of vegetable oil, and just used more chopped garlic and table salt instead of garli...
