PORK RICE BOWLS RECIPE

pork rice bowls |designlovefest

there is a restaurant by my house called pine&crane and they serve a really simple minced pork bowl that is full of flavor and the perfect simple dinner. i knew i wanted to re-create it for you all with a few additional items and it turned out perfectly. the tang of lime juice with the saltiness of the meat and the crunch of the cabbage is spot on. and who doesn’t love a runny egg?! enjoy! – joanie

in a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat. Add the ground pork and begin to break it apart so that it cook evenly and the pink begins to brown. add the rice vinegar, low sodium soy sauce, and fish sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat to low and let the pork cook in its own juices for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. you may also cook for longer periods of time if you like the pork to be crispier.
