My favorite kind of dinner recipe—tasty and fast! This is for dinner for 2. Also, a good time to find and explore your local Asian market.
10 oz. ground pork (or chicken or whatever protein you like.)
4 oz. shredded red cabbage
2 Tbsp. Hoisin sauce (it’s like barbecue sauce)
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 oz. Sweet Thai Chili sauce
2-1/2 Tbsp. Sweet Soy glaze
Your favorite rice, cooked. (I love Basmati but Jasmine is nice with this recipe, too)
1 Tbsp. butter/Earth Balance for the rice
Make rice like you do. Add the butter while it’s hot
Slice scallions, separating whites from the darker green parts.
Cook the ground port in a large pan with some oil. Take out some of the oil if there’s a lot in there when the meat is completely cooked through.
Stir scallion whites and cabbage into the pan with the meat and let cook 2-3 minutes until soft.
Stir in hoisin, chili sauce, 2-1/2 tbsp sweet soy glaze and 1/2 tsp. sugar until thoroughly combined.
Turn off heat, add in juice from half the lime, salt and pepper.
Fluff rice with a fork and serve with pork on top.
Double everything for dinner for 4.
