Step by Step Instructions
Put the rice on and cook to package instructions.
Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat and sauté the ginger and garlic until fragrant – about 2 minutes.
Add the pork (and more butter if needed) and sauté until the pork is cooked through – about 10 minutes then add soy sauce and pepper to taste and sauté 1 minute more. Then mix in the green onions and sprinkle with chili flakes (optional), lower the heat and cover to keep warm until the rice is done.
When the rice is done add a tablespoon of butter and a few dashes of soy sauce and mix well, then share the greens over 4 shallow bowls and top the greens with rice.
