Honey-Soy Caramelized Pork Bowl Recipe
Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 10 min | Serves: 4
+ 1 1/2 lb (680 g) pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
+ 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
+ 1 1/2 tbsp honey
+ 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
+ 1 small piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
+ 1 garlic clove, minced
+ 1/2 dried red chili, seeded and thinly sliced
+ sea salt, to taste
+ 2 tbsp olive oil
+ 2 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
+ 1 bunch kale, ribs and stems removed and julienned
+ 2 cups rice, cooked (learn here how to soak and cook whole grains)
+ 2 tbsp green onions, sliced
Combine tamari, honey, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and chili in a medium bowl. Add pork to the marinade and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add pork in a single layer and season with salt. Cook for about 1 minute, until browned. Toss pork and continue to cook, tossing, until cooked through, about 1 more minute.
Clean skillet and heat remaining olive oil over medium-high heat. Add carrots and cook for about 2 minutes until slightly brown, then add kale and toss to wilt. Cook, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 more minutes.
To serve, divide rice among bowls, arrange pork and vegetables over and sprinkle green onions on top. Enjoy!
