From the Test Kitchen

In this take on a few Chinese-American favorites, a cumin and sichuan peppercorn sauce brings bold, spiced flavor to roasted pork. We’re serving the pork over a bed of vegetable fried rice, made with carrots, bok choy, and ginger—and serving more of the irresistible sauce, combined with mayo, for drizzling on top.

Roast the pork:
1 Roast the pork:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add half the peppercorn sauce; turn to thoroughly coat. Transfer to the sheet pan. Roast, flipping halfway through, 25 to 27 minutes, or until the pork is cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.) Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes.

2 Start the rice:

While the pork roasts, in a small saucepan, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low.
