How to make it

  • Prepare your Saffron rice as per instructions on package.
  • While that's cooking, clean your pork chunks (if purchased pre-chopped, make sure to trim the fat). Place in a bowl a little larger than you think you need.
  • In a small bowl, mix together Garlic Powder, Cinnamon Sugar, Brown sugar and salt. Add to pork in small amounts, tossing with spoons to coat evenly. Used up to 2/3rds of the mixture. Set remaining blend aside.
  • In a large skillet, add oil until about 1cm deep. Heat until hot, but not REALLY hot (sizzles a little when a drop of water is put in, but not like crazy). Drop in the coated pork chunks and stir constantly with a metal slotted spoon. Cook until done and remove from skillet. Reserve the oil in the pan, since it has become a nice glaze from the brown sugar.
  • Clean and dry your pearl onions. Toss into the still hot pan and cook until translucent and they have absorbed that delicious flavor. If your rice is done by now, throw the onions into the rice and mix. Otherwise, remove from skillet and set aside until done.
  • Back to the cutting board. Core your two apples and peel if desired. Cut into halves and then into strips. Turn them 90 degrees and cut into small 1cm cubes. In a bowl with a lid, add lemon juice and apples. Cover and toss to prevent them from browning. Then add the remaining brown sugar blend and toss well.
  • Return to the stove. If there is a lot of oil left over from the pork and the onions, pour some out. Add apples to the oil and cook on medium heat for about one minute. Return the pork to the skillet and toss until warm and the apples are glazed and soft.
  • Serve over rice and onions and enjoy.
