Spicy Ginger Chicken

with Gochujang Cucumbers & Jasmine Rice

Pork chops are always a weeknight winner. They’re satisfying, speedy, and ever-so-versatile, which is why our chefs are always brainstorming new ways to take ’em to the next level. The kickers this week: sweet heat and ginger! After a satisfying sear, you'll make a ginger-chili-ponzu pan sauce for the chops and serve them over a bed of buttery jasmine rice, perfect for catching any runaway sauce. On the side is a cucumber salad in a spicy gochujang-sesame dressing for crisp, crunchy contrast.

Instructions

Cook Rice & Prep
1

• In a small pot, combine rice, 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low; cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve. • Wash and dry produce. • Peel and mince garlic. Trim and halve cucumbers lengthwise; slice into ½-inch-thick half-moons. • Transfer cucumbers to a medium bowl; generously season with salt. Toss to coat, then let sit for 3-5 minutes. Rinse cucumbers; drain and return to bowl. (You’ll finish the cucumbers in Step 3.)

Cook Pork & Make Sauce
2

• Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels; season with a pinch of 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, 4-6 minutes per side. • Remove pan from heat. Stir in umami ginger sauce, chili sauce, and two packets of ponzu (four packets for 4 servings). Turn pork occasionally, until sauce has thickened and pork is coated, 1-2 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer pork to a cutting board.

Swap in chicken for pork; cook 3-5 minutes per side.

Dress Cucumbers
3

• To bowl with drained cucumbers, add gochujang, garlic, half the sesame oil (all for 4 servings), remaining ponzu, and chili flakes to taste. Toss to coat.

Finish & Serve

• Fluff rice with a fork. Thinly slice pork crosswise. Divide rice, pork, and cucumbers between plates in separate sections. Top pork with remaining pan sauce and serve.

Thinly slice chicken crosswise.
