I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve gotten home and have been WAY too tired to cook. Busy weeknights are NO JOKE. That’s why I’m so into simple meals that can be made on a busy weeknight if you planned for it ahead of time.
Inspired by one of my favorite restaurants here in Miami, FINKA, this Cuban Pork Fried Brown Rice is made with a fried egg on top instead of scrambled eggs in the mix and chopped sweet plantains because HECK YEAH.
Here’s how to bring this delicious Cuban Pork Fried Brown Rice to life.
- On Sunday, you cook brown rice and Cuban-style pulled pork in the slow cooker as part of your meal prep.
- Place both in airtight containers and off they go in the fridge.
- During the week, all you have to do is make the sweet plantains and fried eggs which you can make in 5 minutes.
That’s all folks! A flavorful, healthy meal in just 20 minutes with leftovers for the next day. :)
I hope you make it and LOVE it!
