2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.
In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1 cup [1½ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the pork.


Prep the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; cut the pork in half horizontally to create 4 [8] thin cutlets; season generously with salt and pepper.
  • On separate plates or shallow bowls, season the flour and panko with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl and season with salt and pepper. Lightly beat with a fork until just blended.
Working with 1 cutlet at a time, dredge the pork in the flour, turning to coat; shake off any excess. Dip the pork into the egg; let the excess drip off, then lightly press the pork into the panko, coating all sides.


Cook the pork

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning once, until golden brown but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking, turning once, until the pork is still faintly pink within, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
Meanwhile, prepare the black garlic mayo.


Make the black garlic mayo

  • Using the side of a knife or the back of a spoon, smash the black garlic into a paste.
In a small bowl, stir together the mayo and black garlic; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Cook the kale

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough fresh garlic to measure ½ teaspoon [1 tsp].
In the same pan used for the pork, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the fresh garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Working in batches if needed, stir in the kale and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the rice, pork, and kale to individual plates. Serve the black garlic mayo and sambal oelek, if using, on the side.
