I got pulled pork from the grocery store since all of my pork from the hoisin bowls was used up, would try this again with the hoisin pork. Great way to get multiple meals from one main ingredient.

Made with green beans rather than snow peas and had veggie mandarin orange nuggets on the side. Scrambled the eggs in the middle of the rice. Had to add a bit more rice for the proportions to seem right. Was very yummy. Next time, would do mandarin oranges rather than pineapple and would do 1.5 or 2x the sauce.

Normally not a big salad fan for dinner, but this one was pretty awesome. I added cucumbers and tomatoes because I had them on hand, but even without them, the dressing and pork is so good that it just is a great meal.

Great way to use the leftover chicken (I used chicken instead of pork)
