Preparation Time / 30 minutes
Cooking Difficulty / Level 1



  1. Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Mince or grate the garlic and ginger. Thinly slice the chili (if using). Bring 22/3 cups salted water in a large pot to a boil.

2. Marinate the pork: In a large bowl, combine the pork strips with garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Set aside.

3. Cook the rice: Add the rice to the boiling water. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover with a lid, and cook until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed, 12-14 min.

4. Make the stir-fry: Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the pork. Cook until golden and cooked through, 1-2 min per side. Transfer to a plate.

5. Add the sugar snap peas and carrot to the same pan. Cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are tender-crisp, 1-2 min. Stir in the oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, pork and 1 tbsp water. Stir until everything is warmed through, 1-2 min.

6. Finish and serve: Fluff the rice with a fork. Divide the rice between bowls and top with the pork stir-fry. Sprinkle with chili, if desired. Enjoy!

NUTRITION TIP: Carrots (and other orange veggies) are high in beta-carotene. This nutrient is converted to vitamin A in our bodies, which helps with many biological processes including developing night vision!
