Long Green Pepper
Wash and dry all produce. Peel and dice kiwi. Core, deseed, and thinly slice green pepper crosswise. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion; finely dice a few slices until you have 2 TBSP. Dice tomato. Mince garlic. Zest and quarter lime.
Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small pot over mediumhigh heat. Add rice and stir to coat. Stir in ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4) and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine kiwi, tomato, diced onion, and a squeeze of lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, half the lime zest, and a pinch of garlic to taste. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add green pepper and sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender and lightly browned, 6-7 minutes. Add remaining garlic and stir until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer veggies to a plate.
Add a drizzle of oil to pan used for veggies. Add pork and season with salt and pepper. Using a spatula, press into an even layer. Cook without stirring until browned on bottom, 3-4 minutes. Break up meat into pieces and continue cooking until pork is cooked through, 1-2 minutes more. Return cooked veggies to pan. Stir in teriyaki sauce, 1 tsp sugar (1½ tsp for 4 servings), and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4). Cook until thickened, 1-2 minutes.
Fluff rice with a fork; stir in remaining lime zest and season with salt. Divide between bowls and top with pork mixture. Top with kiwi salsa and lime crema. Serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.
