Pork is the most widely eaten meat in southeast Asia, and because it uses lean pork tenderloin, it fits into my eating plan as well. This is based on an Emeril Lagasse recipe.

Directions

  1. Stir together the cornstarch and soy sauce and pour over the pork strips. Stir to combine and set aside.
  2. Stir together the black bean chili sauce, chicken stock and sugar. Set aside until ready to use.
  3. Preheat the wok over medium-high to high heat and add 2 tablespoons of the oil. Swirl quickly to coat the sides of the pan with the oil. Add the eggplant and cook until tender, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside on a plate lined with paper towels. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil and swirl again to coat all sides. Cook the onions, stirring, until slightly tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 5 to 10 seconds. Add the red and green jalapenos and cook for 30 seconds.
  4. Return the eggplant to the wok and add the pork. Cook, stirring, until pork is no longer pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the black bean mixture and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, until everything is well coated with the sauce and heated through.
  5. To make rice, in a medium saucepan combine the jasmine rice with the coconut milk, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit, undisturbed for 5 minutes. Add the scallions and fluff the rice with a fork. Serve immediately.
