Makes 4 servings

  • 2 (3 1/2-ounce) bags boil-in-bag long-grain rice
  • 1 pound boneless center-cut loin pork chops, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic, divided
  • 1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  1. Cook rice according to package directions; omit salt. Drain well; set aside.
  2. While rice cooks, toss pork with 1/2 teaspoon garlic and 1/2 teaspoon ginger. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork; sauté 3 minutes or until done. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in pan over medium-high heat; add 1 teaspoon garlic and 1/2 teaspoon ginger; sauté 30 seconds. Add rice, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and vinegar; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in pork; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.

**Personal Review: This was very simple to make – it tasted pretty good too – although I think I will add a scrambled egg, onions and other “goodies” to this the next time I make it.**
