Brown Rice Vermicelli with Stewed Pork

Brown Rice vs. White Rice. All that ongoing health hype is probably making more and more people in Singapore choose whole grains over refined grains. Besides brown rice itself, you may have noticed that our supermarkets here are now stocked up with brown rice products as well – brown rice pasta, brown rice flour and brown rice crackers to name a few. When I spotted brown rice vermicelli at FairPrice some time back, I decided to grab a pack to make this Brown Rice Vermicelli with Stewed Pork.

Healthier Brown Rice Vermicelli

In terms of taste and texture, brown rice vermicelli is no different from white rice vermicelli. But using it just makes the meal feel so much more satisfying with that extra goodness, lol.

Super Quick and Easy To Make

This Fried Brown Rice Vermicelli with Stewed Pork Recipe is one of my favourite one-dish recipes. It’s like the perfect dish as it’s so quick, easy and hassle-free to make. The canned stewed pork comes with an oily and savoury sauce that really gives depth and flavour to the otherwise plain vermicelli. Absolutely delicious! 🙂
