tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & marinate the tomatoes:
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the tomatoes:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the sweet peppers; remove and discard the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root end of the lettuce; separate the leaves. Depending on their size, quarter or halve the tomatoes into bite-sized pieces. Place in a bowl and top with half the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate. Roughly chop the jalapeño pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling.

Cook the pork & peppers:
2 Cook the pork & peppers:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork; season with salt and pepper. Cook, frequently breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sliced sweet peppers, coconut aminos, sesame oil, and remaining vinegar. Increase the heat to high. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the peppers are softened and the pork is cooked through. Turn off the heat. 

Cook the cauliflower rice:
3 Cook the cauliflower rice:

While the pork cooks, in a small pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the cauliflower rice; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
