From the Test Kitchen

In this take on a Chinese-American favorite, our crowd-pleasing fried rice is topped with rich roasted pork, which gets bold flavor from a coating of cumin and sichuan peppercorn sauce. We’re also using some of this fragrant sauce in our irresistibly creamy, spiced mayo—perfect for dipping or spreading on top.

1 Glaze & roast the pork:

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

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