Quinoa 125g
Minced pork 400g
Sake 1 tbsp

Sugar 1 tbsp
Cucumber 1
Spring onions 2
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp
Vinegar 2 tsp

Hot water 300ml

Method

1
Wash the quinoa lightly and boil in lots of water for 15 minutes. Drain well in a colander.
2
Make the onion oil: put the vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry one roughly chopped spring onion on low heat (keep the other for later).
3
Discard the spring onions (you only need the oil). Take out 1 tbsp of the oil in a bowl.
4
In the same pan, fry the minced pork on medium heat in the remaining oil.
5
Put the sake, soy sauce, miso and sugar in a bowl and mix. Add to the frying pan and cook until reduced. Remove the pork and sauce to a large bowl.
6
Add the vinegar into the bowl of onion oil at Step 3. Add the soy sauce, tahini and chilli oil and mix well.
7
Peel the cucumber and cut into fine strips. Cut the remaining spring onion into strips.
8
Put the chicken stock granules, hot water and soya milk in a pan and bring to just before the boil. Pour this into the pork mixture at Step 5.
9
Divide equally into serving dishes in this order: quinoa, Step 7, then the pork sauce from Step 5. The chilli oil at Step 6 is optional.

Tips & Note

●Mix the ingredients at Step 5 in that order to blend well.
