Sweet Caramelized Pork and Rice
1 lb boneless pork loin
Two tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
One teaspoon cayenne
One tablespoon paprika
Salt and pepper to taste. (I use about one teaspoon each.)
Two tablespoons ginger, minced.
Two cloves garlic, minced.
One small white onion, diced.
One tablespoon red chili paste (optional)
Green onion, for garnish.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix your brown sugar, cayenne, paprika, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Sprinkle your pork loin on all sides with half of the dry rub.
Heat one tablespoon of your olive oil in an oven-safe skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat.
Brown your meat on all sides and remove from heat.
Transfer your oven-safe skillet to your preheated oven. Allow cooking for about 25-30 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow your meat to rest on a cutting board for about 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining olive oil over medium-high heat.
Saute your onions, ginger, and garlic for 3-4 minutes until translucent.
Slice your cooled pork thinly.
Add pork to onion mixture along with the remaining brown sugar mixture.
Stir until browned and caramelization has begun.
Serve with rice and garnishments!
