  • (d) black pepper sherry sauce
  • (e) bibb lettuce

Equipment Needed

  • small saucepot & lid
  • wooden spoons
  • scissors
  • skillet or saute pan
  • spatula
  • serving spoon

Recipe Directions

  1. For best results, take the pork out of the refrigerator 10 minutes before starting to cook. If you skip this step, you may need to cook the meat longer than this recipe card indicates.
  2. Pour the jasmine rice (a) along with the sesame seeds and garlic (b) into a small saucepot. Add 1/2 cup of water (for each serving you are making) to the rice. Put the saucepot over medium-high heat and bring up to a simmer. Do not stir. Once the rice is simmering, stir three times and then turn down to medium-low. Cover with a lid or foil and simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  3. While the rice is simmering, heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. When the pan has warmed up, add 1 tbsp of oil or enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Cut open the package of ground pork (c) and place in the pan. Use a spatula to break up the pork into smaller pieces. Cook for 3 minutes, without stirring. Then stir and cook for another 2-3 minutes.;Add the water chestnuts and peppers (d) to the pan with the pork. Then pour the black pepper sherry sauce (e) on top. Stir to incorporate everything together. Saute for 3 minutes. Then remove from the heat and taste. Add more salt and pepper if you wish.
  4. At this point, the rice should be ready. Taste the rice and if it is cooked to your preferred consistency, remove from the heat. Spoon into a serving bowl.
  5. Lay out a piece of bibb lettuce (f) on your serving plate. Spoon the rice into the lettuce cup and then add a scoop of the black pepper pork and vegetables.
