  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground pork, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground pork, working in batches, if necessary.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 3, breaking up until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using shrimp, follow same instructions as ground pork in Step 3, cooking until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with rice and 11/4 cups water to a boil.

    Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes.

    Remove from burner and fluff rice. Cover and set aside.

    While rice cooks, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and thinly slice carrot on an angle.

    Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut into 1/2" strips.

    Halve lime. Juice one half and cut other half into wedges.

  3. 3

    Cook the Ground Pork

    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.

    While pork cooks, in a mixing bowl, combine cornstarch, pho concentrate, soy sauce, and 1/4 cup water until cornstarch is dissolved.

    Stir cornstarch mixture into pan. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. 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. Stir often until bok choy just softens, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner and stir in sweet chili sauce (to taste). If desired, add ground pork and stir to combine.
