For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

We’re fans of Asian flavours and combinations, I think we’ve made more Asian dishes than anything.

Food often reminds us of places we’ve been in times past. We had dirty rice whilst on a business trip to the US & it got us thinking… could we combine dirty rice with fried rice? You bet we can!

Technically speaking – this Slimming World Syn Free Dirty Rice isn’t “dirty rice” in the traditional sense.

It lacks the chicken livers that dirty rice would usually call for. Feel free to add them in, we just didn’t fancy putting them in.

If you’re looking for a more traditional fried rice then check out our Syn Free Fakeaway Fried Rice. It’s really popular and goes so, so well with our Low Syn Chinese Chicken Curry!

What do I need to make this Syn Free Dirty Fried Rice?

You need the ingredients (all of which are listed at the bottom of this post in the FULL recipe) but the main ones are the meat and oil!

The Pork Mince

For the pork mince, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.

The pork mince is lovely and doesn’t come out of the pack in a block that’s difficult to break up like mince from some other online meat suppliers.

The Bacon

We also use bacon from Protein Food Shop. The bacon medallions are lovely and thick, with no visible fat, and they are British.

We also have a few other exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Dirty Rice recipe.

How do I make this Syn Free Dirty Fried Rice?

Step 1

Cook the rice according to the packet instructions, adding the Bayleaf to the water before cooking. Set the rice aside once cooked and allow to cool.

Add the stock cube to the 125ml of boiling water & set aside. We’ll need this at step 5.

Step 3

Mist a large frying pan with Frylight, then cook the onions, pork mince and bacon until they are nicely browned.

Can I freeze and reheat this Syn Free Dirty Fried Rice?

Freezing and reheating rice is often a concern for a lot of people, and it’s one of the things we get asked about quite frequently.

As we all know you can get food poisoning from eating reheated rice, but, it’s not actually the reheating that can cause issues, it is, in fact, the way that the rice has been stored beforehand where the problem begins.

Without getting too technical uncooked rice can contain spores that are resistant to heat and can survive the cooking process. If cooked rice is left standing at room temperature these spores can grow into bacteria. At this point, the bacteria will be destroyed by reheating the rice thoroughly.

If you intend keeping any leftover rice dishes then you should do the following:

  • Cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) then fridge or freeze it immediately. You can split larger portions up into smaller batches to cool quicker.
  • Freeze as soon as the rice is cold.
  • Reheat and use any leftover rice (stored in the fridge) within one day.
  • When you reheat any rice, always check it is steaming hot all the way through.
  • Don’t reheat cooked rice more than once.

For more information about reheating rice please take a look at the NHS website.

  1. Hi can you taste the celery in this? I hate celery so want to know wether to leave it out 😊 thank you

    1. Hi Marie
      Personally, I don’t think it’s too overpowering, but you could leave it out if you want. Having said that it does add to the flavour of the dish

    1. Hi Pam
      If you take a look at their website you will see that all their chicken is sourced from the finest ethical free range farms.

  2. This looks scrummy! I can’t seem to find the print button .. can you please add? Or give me a clue to find it please 😉

    1. Hi Denise
      The print button is on the line below the number of servings, prep time and cooking time in the recipe card itself

  3. Yummy love it as done last week with pork mince then today with beef mince so tasty. Next one turkey mince mmm lol

  4. We absolutely loved this. It’s not particularly photogenic so please try it. My children adored it and my rice averse husband is converted. Make lots and enjoy it hot or cold for lunch. Yummers!

  5. Easily one of the best sw recipes I have tried, and its so versatile. Made it now with both brown and white rice, with pork mince and with turkey mince. Simple and delicious!

  6. Tried this for the first time this week. Added garlic as had no spring onions. Was lovely thanks for a fabulous recipe 😊

    1. Hi Nicky
      You can put whatever veg you want in really, so just replace them with whichever veg you prefer. Finely chopped carrot is always a good substitue

  7. If you use chicken livers (yes I do like them sorry everyone) is this instead of the mince. I’m not keen on mince funnily enough!

  8. Hi I made this last nigh but used small diced chicken , 5% mince an added abit of garlic too it was amazing. Thank you for all your ideas an recipe s . Love pinch of non .👌😃x

  9. This works amazing with turkey mince, I love it on its own, but does anyone have suggestions of a sauce I could pair it with for a change?
