Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 4, breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using diced chicken breasts, pat dry. Follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 11/2 cups water to a boil.

    Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.

    Remove from burner and season with a pinch of salt.

    While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim cucumber, halve lengthwise, then cut into 1/2” half-moons.

    If mango is frozen, microwave 30-60 seconds until thawed. Cut mango into 1/4" chunks.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Stem cilantro, reserving leaves whole.

  3. 3

    Pickle the Slaw

    Combine slaw mix, cucumber, mango, 2 tsp. olive oil, rice wine vinegar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside to pickle, at least 5 minutes.

    While slaw pickles, cook pork.

  4. 4

    Cook the Pork

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil, white portions of green onions, ground pork, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Stir in mirin and garlic sesame sauce until meat is coated. Remove from burner and cover.

  5. 5

    Finish Rice and Finish Dish

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add green portions of green onions to hot pan and stir often, 1 minute.

    Add rice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir often until slightly crispy, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
