  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 1½ cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes. Remove from burner and fluff in white portions of green onions (prepared in the next step while rice cooks) until combined. Cover and set aside. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate. Peel, trim, and thinly slice carrot on an angle. Halve lime. Juice one half and cut other half into wedges.

  3. 3

    Cook the Ground Pork

    In a mixing bowl, combine cornstarch, pho concentrate, soy sauce, and ¼ cup water until cornstarch is dissolved. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add ground pork to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Stir cornstarch-soy sauce mixture, then add to hot pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove ground pork to a bowl. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to cook pork to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add carrot to hot pan and stir occasionally until beginning to soften, 4-5 minutes. Add bok choy and 2 tsp. lime juice and stir until bok choy just softens, 2-4 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in sweet chili sauce. If desired, add ground pork and stir to combine.
