  • 1 cup (250 mL) uncooked rice **
  • 1 lb. (450 g) pork tenderloin, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) dark sesame oil, divided
  • 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps
  • 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced snow peas
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) honey
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) peanuts, chopped

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon (15 mL) oil in same skillet and cook vegetables, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in honey and cook just until vegetables are coated, about 30 seconds.
