  • Cook pork- In a 12 inch non-stick skillet, cook the ground pork. Use a spatula to break it into small pieces, and stir/flip. Cook it for 7-10 minutes, until no longer pink. If there is a lot of grease in the pan, drain it before proceeding to the next step.

  • Add garlic + ginger- Make a space in the middle of the pan, and add the sesame oil. Add the garlic and ginger, and let them simmer for 1 minute, until fragrant. Mix them into the pork at this point.
