Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen peas

  • ½ cup water

  • ¼ cup sesame oil, divided

  • 4 cups cubed pork loin

  • 6 green onions, sliced

  • 1 large carrot, cubed

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 20 ounces shredded cauliflower

  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 eggs, beaten

Directions

  1. Stir peas and water together in a saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook and stir until peas are tender and heated through, about 5 minutes. Drain and discard water.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons sesame oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Cook and stir pork in hot oil until lightly browned on all sides and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate.

  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil the wok. Saute green onions, carrot, and garlic in hot oil until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower; cook and stir until cauliflower had a tender but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes.

  4. Stir pork, peas, and and soy sauce into cauliflower mixture and stir-fry until mixture is hot and slightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

  5. Move pork-cauliflower mixture to one side of the wok; pour beaten eggs onto empty side. Scramble eggs until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes; stir cooked eggs into the pork-cauliflower mixture, breaking up any large chunks.

Cook's Notes:

Shred cauliflower using the largest side of a grater; the end product resembles grains of rice.

You can use any lean meat in this dish.
