Wash produce before use
Make the kimchi “chimichurri”
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
- Finely chop the kimchi.
- Finely chop the cilantro.
- Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest both limes; juice 1 lime. Save the remaining zested lime for another use.]
In a medium bowl, stir together the scallions, kimchi, cilantro, sesame oil, lime zest, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice; season to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep and cook the pork
- Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] neutral oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While the pork is cooking and resting, prepare the hash.
Prep and cook the sweet potato–bok choy hash
- Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.
- Trim the root ends from the bok choy; cut the bok choy on the diagonal into 1-inch-wide strips.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In the same pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] neutral oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the sweet potato, season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the bok choy and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season lightly to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the kimchi “chimichurri” to individual plates and top with the pork. Serve the sweet potato–bok choy hash on the side.
- Juice the lime.
- Measure the lime juice.
- Scrub the sweet potato.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Time the cooking.
