Chinese Pork and Rice

This is a great meal for using up left over meats. I have used pork, chicken and beef. I have used combinations of all of the above. I will take pieces of left over meat that isn’t enough for a full left over meal and freezer them. When I have enough, I defrost them and make this.

2/3 Cup uncooked rice (not instant)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 bouillon cube (use chicken if mostly pork or chicken, beef if mostly beef)
2 tsp soy sauce
1 med onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped (I use any color I happen to have)
1 1/2 cups diced cooked pork (or chicken or beef or combination)

Cook rice in hot oil until golden brown. Add salt, water, bouillon cube and soy sauce. Cover and cook 20 minutes. Add rest of the ingredients and 1/4 cup more water if necessary. Cover and cook 10 additional minutes.
