- 1½ cups jasmine rice
- 2¼ cups boiling water
- 1 broccoli cut into small florets
- 2 carrots cut in half & thinly sliced on an angle
- 1 baby bok choy leaves separated
- 1 drizzle oil
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce

- 1 drizzle oil
- 600 g free farmed pork mince
- 100 g teriyaki sauce
- 3 Tbsp water

- Before you start, bring a full kettle to the boil.
- Combine rice, boiling water measure and a pinch of salt in a medium pot and bring to the boil with the lid on. Once boiling, reduce to lowest heat to cook for 12 minutes. Turn off heat and steam, covered, for 5 more minutes. Do not lift lid during cooking.
- Prep broccoli, carrot and bok choy. Prep spring onion and set aside separately.

- Wipe pan clean, return to heat with oil and cook broccoli and carrot for about 5 minutes, until starting to char. Add bok choy, soy sauce, water measure and sweet chilli sauce and cook for a further 2 minutes, until veggies are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Serve rice topped with pork, sesame seeds and spring onion, with veggies on the side.
Meet the Chef
Ary develops all of the recipes that go into our Bargain Boxes. One of his biggest passions is sharing food and teaching people how to cook, so now that he creates recipes weekly, he literally gets to teach thousands of people new and exciting things! His favourite produce in New Zealand broccoli – it’s crispy and vibrant and he even grows it at home! It’s one of the veggies he never tires of. His biggest food weakness (because we all have one!) is crispy fried chicken that speaks right to his soul when it’s done right – though he’s such a lover of sharing a good meal that he’d prefer to stay in and cook a family meal over going out to eat.
