Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place rice in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse until water runs clear. Add to a small pot with 1 cup water (2 cups for 4 servings) and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until rice is tender, 15 minutes. Keep covered off heat for at least 10 minutes or until ready to serve.

Step 2

While rice cooks, wash and dry all produce. Trim, peel, and cut carrots on a diagonal into ½-inch-thick pieces. Peel and finely chop garlic. Zest and quarter lime. Thinly slice chili.

Step 3

Toss carrots on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until browned and tender, 20-25 minutes.

Step 4

While carrots roast, pat pork dry with paper towels and season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Remove pan from heat to cool for 1 minute.

Step 5

Return same pan to medium heat (if pan is dry, add a drizzle of oil). Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Stir in soy sauce, jam, and 2 TBSP water (3 TBSP for 4 servings); cook, stirring, until thickened and glossy, 2-3 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in a squeeze of lime juice, 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4), and a pinch of chili to taste.

Step 6

Return pork to pan and turn to coat in glaze. Fluff rice with a fork; stir in lime zest and season with salt and pepper. Divide rice between plates; top with pork and add carrots to the side. Drizzle pork with any remaining glaze and serve with remaining lime wedges.
