      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.
