  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 ounces ground pork
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup spinach, loosely packed
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup cooked white rice


  1. In a 10″ skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil 30 seconds. Add pork and salt and cook, stirring frequently, until completely cooked, about 4 minutes. Transfer pork to a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Add mushrooms, onions, and carrots to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in spinach, soy sauce, vinegar, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until the spinach wilts, about 30 seconds.
  4. Pour into bowl with pork, then pour contents over cooked rice in a large serving dish. Enjoy!


For an individual helping of rice, simply add 1/4 cup rice, 3/4 cup water, 1/4 tablespoon butter, and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt to an oven-safe ramekin or 5″ × 5″ baking dish. Preheat your oven to 325°F, then bake the rice for 40 minutes until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.
