Forget takeout: The path to sweet-spicy-savory dinner bliss is as simple as breaking out a frying pan. In this recipe, ground pork and green beans are coated in a tantalizingly tangy, spicy, sweet, and savory sauce of hoisin, soy, lime juice, and sriracha. Everything comes together over a bed of steamy rice and is topped with a sprinkle of peanuts for crunch—in just 15 minutes, from start to finish. You’re not dreaming—this is dinner!
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Wash and dry all produce. • Trim green beans if necessary, then halve crosswise. (TIP: To do this quickly, line up several beans and slice at once.) Quarter lime. • In a small bowl, whisk together ¾ cup cold water (1¼ cups for 4 servings) and cornstarch until dissolved. Whisk in hoisin, soy sauce, a big squeeze of lime juice to taste, and as much sriracha as you like.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium, preferably nonstick, pan (use a large pan for 4 servings) over medium-high heat. Add pork* and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned, 3-5 minutes (it’ll finish cooking in step 4).
• Meanwhile, place green beans in a medium microwave-safe bowl with a splash of water. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap; microwave until green beans are slightly tender, 1-2 minutes. Set aside. • Partially open top of rice package; microwave for 90 seconds.
• Carefully drain green beans, then add to pan with pork. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until pork is cooked through and beans are just tender, 2-3 minutes. • Pour in sauce; bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Reduce to a low simmer and cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes more. Turn off heat. • Divide rice between bowls and top with stir-fry. Sprinkle with peanuts and serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side.
