1Cook Rice

In a small saucepan, combine rice, measured water, pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Cover, cook over low heat until rice is tender & water is absorbed, about 17-20 minutes. Keep covered until ready to serve.

2Make Sauce

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add pork & sear, turning occasionally, until browned all over, 3-4 minutes. It should be caramelised & slightly charred on all sides. Remove from skillet, place on sheet pan. Wipe skillet clean.

4Roast Pork

Roast pork 10-12 minutes until cook through. Let pork rest a few minutes after removing from the oven.

Add ginger/garlic blend to skillet. Cook over medium high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add pak choi, stir fry for 5-7 minutes until just tender/wilted. Set aside. 

6Finish & Serve

Fluff rice with a fork. Thinly slice pork. Spoon rice onto plates, top with pork, drizzle tamari sauce & any leftover char siu sauce over top. Serve with pak choi alongside. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
