Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and brown sugar in a bowl; stir until the sugar dissolves. Add lime juice, vinegar, fish sauce and chile pepper to taste. Set aside.

  • Peel the broccoli stems. Coarsely chop all the broccoli. Pulse in a food processor into rice-size pieces.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli "rice" and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Divide among 4 bowls; cover to keep warm.

  • Wipe out the pan. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and pork and cook over medium-high heat, stirring and breaking up, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, ginger and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in herbs, shallot and 1/2 cup of the reserved sauce.

  • To serve, top each bowl of broccoli rice with equal portions of the pork mixture, bell pepper, carrot, cucumber and peanuts. Serve with the remaining sauce.
