Hope you have some exciting plans for the weekend! I am going to be rushing around so planning to cook a quick and easy one-dish supper, perfect for a simple Saturday night treat. Thought that I would share it with you all too. Spicy fragrant minced pork with pickled soy ‘lettuce' and spinach rice. You can serve this dish any way you like - add cooked jasmine rice and mix all the ingredients together for a one-dish supper, or serve the dish on top of plain steamed rice. Either way, it’s a winner! Full recipe in Chinese Food In Minutes or I've included it below for you to try! Have a great weekend y’all. Love, Ching x Spicy fragrant minced pork with pickled soy ‘lettuce’, spinach rice Serves: 2 Preparation: 5 minutes Cooking: 10 minutes Ingredients: 1 tablespoon groundnut oil 1 teaspoon Sichuan Peppercorns 3 garlic cloves, crushed and finely chopped 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger 250g/9oz lean minced pork 1 tablespoon Shaohsing rice wine or dry sherry 2 heaped tablespoons pickled soy ‘lettuce’ stems or pickled cornichons, finely chopped 1 tablespoon light soy sauce 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce 1 teaspoon Chinkiang black rice vinegar or balsamic vinegar 350g/12oz cooked jasmine rice 200g/7oz spinach leaves a dash of toasted sesame oil Method: 1. Heat a wok over a high heat and add the groundnut oil. When the oil starts to smoke, add the Sichuan peppercorns and toss in the oil for a few seconds, then add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry quickly for a few seconds. Top in the minced pork and break it up with a wooden spoon. 2. As the pork starts to turn brown, add the rice wine or sherry and cook for a few more seconds. Add the pickled soy lettuce or cornichons and stir well. Turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 minute so that all the flavours fuse together. 3. Taste and season to your liking – the dish should be quite salty in flavour. Add the cooked rice and mix well, then add the spinach and toss until wilted slightly. 4. Add a dash of sesame oil and serve immediately.
