    Hoisin Pork & Spicy Rice Bowls with Mushrooms, Radishes & Marinated Cucumbers
    Title
    • 18 oz Ground Pork
    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    • 2 tsps Gochujang
    • 2 Persian Cucumbers
    • ½ lb Mushrooms
    • 3 oz Radishes
    • ¼ cup Hoisin Sauce
    • 1 Tbsp Mirin (Salted Cooking Wine)
    • 3 Tbsps Roasted Peanuts
    • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
    • ⅓ cup East Asian-Style Sautéed Aromatics
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Roughly chop the peanuts. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Combine the sliced cucumbers and sliced radishes in a bowl. Add the mirin and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    2 Cook the rice

    Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine 2 cups of water, a big pinch of salt, and as much of the gochujang as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Whisk to thoroughly combine. Add the rice; stir to combine. 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.

    Cook the mushrooms
    3 Cook the mushrooms

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sautéed aromatics (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the mushrooms are softened. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil. Add the hoisin sauce and 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly thickened and the pork is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked pork, cooked mushrooms, and marinated vegetables (including any liquid). Garnish with the chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
