The Cooking Process:
Preparing the Ingredients: This took no longer than two minutes – I just had to slice the green onions on an angle, keeping the white and green portions separate and cut the celery into slices on an angle as well.
Making the Sauce: In a small mixing bowl, I combined the sweet and sour sauce and Dijon Mustard and set aside.
Cooking the Pork: In a large non-stick pan over a medium-high heat I heated some olive oil, added the ground pork, the white portions of the green onions and a bit of salt and pepper for flavor. I cooked it while breaking up the meat with a spoon, until there was no longer any pink meat visible. This took about 5 minutes. Then I added half of the ponzu sauce and cooked until it was absorbed for 2 minutes and I then transferred the pork to a plate.
Plating and serving: To plate this dish I divided the pork mixture between two plates and garnished with the wonton strips, peanuts, green portions of the onions and a drizzle of the sweet and sour-Dijon sauce.
On a Personal Note:
Now, this is again one of the reasons I joined a meal kits service and continue to use them – the dish was incredibly tasty and so easy to make. The pork was tender and the mustard and sweet and sour sauce added some very nice flavors. Another great dish from Home Chef!
