tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the hot honey:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the hot honey:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the snap peas. Pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each pea pod. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), vinegar, 1 tablespoon of warm water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. 

Cook the rice & peas:
2 Cook the rice & peas:

Add the rice to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 28 minutes. Add the prepared peas and continue to cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender and the peas are bright green. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. 

Cook the pork:
3 Cook the pork:

Once the rice has cooked about 10 minutes, pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork and cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.  

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Make the chipotle mayo:
4 Make the chipotle mayo:

While the pork rests, in a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon of water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.
