tips & techniques
Prepare the cauliflower & make the glaze
1 Prepare the cauliflower & make the glaze

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the cauliflower; cut out and discard the core. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze, hoisin sauce, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to thoroughly combine.

Season the cauliflower
2 Season the cauliflower

Place the cauliflower florets on a sheet pan. Top with the sesame oil and a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer around the edges of the sheet pan.

Form & bake the meatloaf
3 Form & bake the meatloaf

In a large bowl, combine the pork, breadcrumbs, half the sautéed aromatics, and half the glaze. Season with salt and pepper; gently mix to combine. Transfer to the center of the sheet pan of seasoned cauliflower. Shape the mixture into a tightly packed loaf, about 10 inches by 3 inches. Evenly spread or brush the remaining glaze onto the prepared meatloaf. Roast 22 to 26 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender when pierced with a fork and the meatloaf is browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven. Transfer the roasted meatloaf to a cutting board; let rest at least 2 minutes.  

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 160°F for pork.

Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork; stir in the remaining sautéed aromatics. Cover to keep warm.
