  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • Cooked Rice, day-old and chilled, grains separated
  • Left-over Chicken or Pork Adobo, shredded or cut up in small pieces
  • Salt, to taste
  • Green Onion, sliced thinly (optional)


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or a large frying pan to medium setting. Cook the garlic until nicely browned but not burned. Add the meat and cook until heated up. If there are any sauce left with the meat, add it to. 

  2. Mix the prepared rice with the meat and stir-fry until rice is heated through. Season with salt to taste. For some color, add a little soy sauce if desired. Garnish with some sliced green onions, if desired. Serve immediately with some fried eggs for a complete meal.

Recipe Notes

To prepare the rice, take it out the fridge and place it in a large bowl or even a baking sheet. Add a little water (just enough to moisten the rice) and, using your bare hands, separate the grains. Do this until all of the rice has been fully worked through. Rice is now ready for cooking.
