Sichuan Pork and Veggie Stir Fry with ginger rice

Chef Amy
This bountiful dish is a favorite for us. The Sichuan garlic paste is the key ingredient, resulting in pork mince that's packed with flavor. Teamed with tender greens, zingy ginger rice and a fried egg to bring it all together, every bite is awesome.

Notes

Note
  • When frying the egg, 4-5 minutes will give a soft yolk. Fry for 6-7 minutes for a hard yolk.
  • The chili and roasted peanuts are optional.
  • When the ginger rice has finished cooking and you remove it from the heat for 12 minutes remember not to peek as it will finish cooking in it's own steam.
  • Alternatively, rather than using a saucepan for cooking the rice, you can use a Japanese rice cooker
