1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan) Gas mark 7. Peel the skin off the ginger with a teaspoon, then grate or finely chop. Trim the top and bottom from the green beans then chop in half.

2

Make a cooking parcel by shaping 2 sheets of tin foil to roughly resemble the shape and size of a small tray. Place on a baking tray. Place the green beans and ginger in the centre of the foil along with 1 tbsp of cold water (2 tbsp for 4 people etc). Bring the edges of the foil together to seal the parcel. Cook in the oven on a baking tray for 10-15 minutes until tender.

3

Rinse the basmati rice under cold water. Then add the rice, a pinch of salt and 250 ml of cold water for 2 people (500ml for 4 etc.) into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling point is reached pop the lid on, reduce the heat to very low and cook for 10-12 minutes. Once the water has all been absorbed the rice is ready. Take it off the heat and keep covered until ready to serve.

4

Heat a drizzle of cooking oil in a large non-stick frying pan on a high heat. When the oil is hot, add the mince and cook for 3-4 minutes or until browned. Stir with a wooden spoon to stop the meat from sticking to the pan and break up any clumps.

5

Meanwhile, peel the garlic then grate or finely chop. Finely slice half of the red chilli(s) into rounds. Cut the remaining half in half lengthways, scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon, discard the seeds and finely chop the chilli. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the meat!

6

When the mince has browned, stir in the chopped garlic and chopped chilli according to how hot you want it. Cook for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce and hoisin sauce and cook for 3 - 4 minutes or until the mince is thoroughly cooked with no pink meat and the sauce has become sticky.

7

Check the greens, and when ready take out of the oven and drain away any excess liquid. Put the ginger greens in a bowl and top with sesame seeds, a pinch of salt and give it a good mix.

8

Serve with ginger greens on the side, the rice and sticky hoisin pork ontop.
