- 2 cups instant brown rice, dry
- ¼ cup lower-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sherry wine
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp olive oil, divided into ½ tbsp each
- 1 lb ground pork
- 8 oz Monterey® Baby Bella Mushrooms, finely chopped
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- 1 lb green beans, ends trimmed
- 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
- 1 tsp sweet chili sauce (optional)
- ¼ tsp crushed red pepper (or to taste*)
- 3 green onions, diced
- Prepare the instant brown rice according to package directions (you can continue with the rest of the recipe while rice is cooking). When done, set aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sherry wine, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Set aside.
- Heat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add the ground pork and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 7-10 minutes, until pork is cooked through (there should be no pink). Use a slotted spoon to remove pork and mushroom blend and set aside in a large bowl for now.
- Leave any of the drippings from the pork in the skillet, and return to medium heat. Add the other ½ tablespoon of olive oil. Add the green beans and cook for approximately 3 minutes.
- Add the bell pepper and cook for another 4 minutes, until all vegetables are starting to get crisp-tender.
- Add garlic, ginger, sweet chili sauce, and crushed red pepper and cook for another minute.
- Add pork/mushroom mixture back to the pan. Stir in the sauce mixture and green onions. Continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes, until everything is well heated and combined. Serve over rice.
- You can chop the mushrooms by hand, or toss them in a food processor and pulse a few times to finely chop.
- You can adjust the amount of crushed red pepper according to your spice preference. As written is a fairly mild version with a little bit of heat. You can also add in ground Szechuan peppercorns if you'd like.
