1. Prepare Rice: Place 1 cup of rice, 2 cups of water ( or whatever the rice directions say) and the ginger slices in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, cover and them reduce heat to low. Simmer until rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Once done, take ginger slices out of pan.
2. Prepare pork: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and a grill pan ( or grill) to high heat). Slice pork tenderloin into 1/2 inch strips and season strips with, garlic, onion, ginger, pepper and salt on both sides. Once the grill pan is hot, add the pork. Cook 3 minutes per side to get some good grill marks. Once done. Place on baking sheet and in over for 2 minutes. Take out of oven set aside and let rest.
3. In a frying pan or large pan on medium high heat, add olive oil. Once oil is hot, add garlic, ginger and green onion, cooking until onion is tender, about 1 minute ( make sure to stir garlic so it does not burn). Add peas and carrots, stir and cook until vegetables are tender about 3 minutes. Add eggs over veggies and stir till scrambled, about 1 minute. Add rice to pan. Gently fold rice in. Remove from heat. Add Pork, soy sauce and hoisin ( you may want to add more later, but go slow, it gets very strong quickly). Gently stir together till all rice is coated in sauce.
4. Serve and enjoy!
