Step 1

Wash and dry all produce. Peel and mince or grate ginger. Trim green beans, if necessary; cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens.

Step 2

Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add half the ginger; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Stir in rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4), and a big pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes. Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.

Step 3

While rice cooks, add green beans and a splash of water to a medium microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave until tender, 1-2 minutes. Drain. Heat a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add peanuts, 1 tsp sugar (2 tsp for 4 servings), and 2 TBSP water. Cook, stirring, until water has evaporated and peanuts are coated and lightly toasted, 3-5 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a small bowl.

Step 4

Wash out pan used for peanuts. Heat a large drizzle of oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned, 4-6 minutes (it’ll cook through in the next step).

Step 5

Stir green beans, scallion whites, remaining ginger, and 1 tsp sugar (2 tsp for into pan with pork. Cook, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan, until ginger is fragrant and pork is cooked through, 1-2 minutes. (TIP: If scallions brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium low.) Stir in Szechuan paste, sweet soy glaze, and ¼ cup water (⅓ cup for 4). Cook, stirring, until everything is thoroughly coated, 1-2 minutes more. Turn off heat.

Step 6

Fluff rice with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Divide between bowls. Taste and season pork stir-fry with salt and pepper; spoon over rice. Sprinkle with scallion greens and peanuts. Serve.
