    Serves: 5 

    • 2 cups (250ml) water
    • 1 cup (185g) uncooked white rice
    • 1 kg boneless pork loin, cut into 2cm cubes
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 4 medium tomatoes, cut into bite size pieces
    • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
    • 1 egg, beaten

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until all the water is gone and the rice is fluffy.
    2. Heat oil in a large wok or frypan. Add pork and onion and stir-fry until done and no pink is showing. Stir in tomatoes and steam until tomatoes are semi-soft. Remove from heat and stir in the cooked rice. Add the fish sauce and beaten egg and stir well; the egg will thicken the mixture. Then it is Kal Pot and ready to serve!

    Perhaps more precise measurements would help? (example - four tomatoes...big ones? small ones?)Ours turned out mushy, bland and overwhelmingly tomoto-ey - and the appearance was NOT appetizing, to say the least. Flavor improved somewhat with the addition of sriracha chile sauce, but this is NOT a recipe we'll be using again.  -  26 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
