They say that orange is a happy colour, and the hint of freshly squeezed orange juice you’re adding to this ground pork dish really gets all the flavours singing. The meat takes on the tastes of ponzu and honey for a prickly-sweet palate. Meantime, just sauté mini sweet pepper rounds, Asian greens and crunchy peanuts, and sprinkle on our distinctive Mellow Sesame spices. Soon you’ll be serving this colourful stir-fry over fragrant scallion rice.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff the rice.

Meanwhile, thinly slice the sweet peppers into rounds, discarding the stems and seeds. Remove the bottom inch of the gai lan stems; roughly chop the leaves and stems. Thinly slice the scallions. Juice the orange.

Cook & coat the pork
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the pork; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 2 to 3 min., until lightly browned. Add the honey, ponzu and orange juice. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until the pork* is cooked through and the sauce has reduced.
