Method

Step 1

Preparation: For speed, cook the brown rice before prepping the rest of the ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Brown rice (parboiled): Boil the kettle. Pour the boiling water (see quantity above) into a saucepan, add the rice and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, cover and gently simmer for 18-20 minutes on low heat. Drain if there is any excess water. Set aside to cool down slightly.

Step 3

Carrot: Cut matchsticks, here’s how: peel and cut in half crossways. Slice each piece lengthways (5mm). Finally place each piece down flat and cut lengthways again into a matchstick – about 5mm wide.

Step 4

Sauce: Mix together the soy sauce and sweet & sour sauce. Set aside.

Step 5

Veggies: Place a large pan on high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the carrots, cook for 3-4 minutes, until charred. Set aside. Then add a little more olive oil and char the sweetcorn for 2-3 minutes, set aside. Lastly add another drizzle of olive oil and char the spring onions for 2-3 minutes, set aside and keep warm.

Step 6

Pork mince: Using the same pan, place on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When hot, add the pork mince and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes while breaking it up with a spoon before adding the ginger, garlic and HALF the sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until golden and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 7

Fried rice: Using the same pan, add the rice, pour in the beaten egg and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 8

Serve the pork mince with the fried rice and veggies, drizzle over the REST of the sauce and sprinkle over the coriander and chilli (optional).
