Helpful hints

  • For extra-spicy tastes, serve Thai garlic-chile paste on the side.
  • Unseasoned rice vinegar is used because seasoned rice vinegar has added salt and sugar.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet reduce the pork portion to match your meal plan or consult your dietitian for advise on portion size.
  • Prepare rice in a rice cooker if you have one.
