Dinner, Main Course, Side Dish
medium onion, diced
scallion and sriracha sauce for garnish!
Stir together sauce ingredients: soy sauce, hoisin and sesame oil. Set aside.
Heat large skillet to medium high heat; add chopped bacon.
Cook bacon for 4-5 minutes until just crispy; remove from skillet. Leave enough bacon grease (about 1 tablespoon) in the skillet and discard the rest.
Add onion and cook for one minute until translucent, then add in garlic.
Cook garlic for 30 seconds, stirring frequently to avoid burning.
Add rice and sauce to the pan, stirring continuously until sauce/garlic/onions are well mixed. Continue to stir until rice is hot and sauce has fully coated the rice.
Stir in reserved bacon. Top with scallions and sriracha (if desired) and serve!
Hoisin sauce is widely available at most grocery stores (even Wal-Mart) in the Asian section. If you can't find it, you can substitute 3 tablespoons of brown sugar.
