•1/2 cup jasmine rice

•2 oz ponzu sauce

•1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

•6 oz snap peas

•2 tbsp soy sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a medium pot with rice and 1 cup of water to boil. Reduce to simmer, cover and cook 18-20 minutes.

Slice green onions, mince garlic and remove strings from snap peas (if necessary).

I’m a mixing bowl combine pork, soy sauce, half the green onions, rice flour, ginger, half the sesame oil and a pinch of pepper. Mix and roll into 8 golfball sized meatballs. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a non stick pan. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides (2-3 minutes). Transfer meatballs to a baking sheet. Place in oven and cook 8-10 minutes.

Wipe pan clean, add 1tbsp of olive oil and remaining sesame oil. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add snap peas, green onions, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of salt. Stir occasionally until tender (4-5 minutes).

Plate dish and serve ponzu sauce on the side for dipping. Enjoy!!
