Asian Ground Pork And Spinach


  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. Asian sesame oil (we used toasted sesame oil)
  • 10 oz. (10 packed cups) baby spinach (we just got two 5 oz. bags of spinach and didn’t bother measuring it to see if it produced 10 packed cups worth)
  • Cooked rice or rice noodles (we used white rice)


  1. Take a 12-inch skillet out and place it on the stovetop. Set the heat to medium-high and once the skillet’s hot, add in the ground pork and salt. Breaking up the meat in the process, cook the pork for 5 to 7 minutes or until it’s fully cooked.
  2. While the pork’s cooking, make the dressing by taking a small mixing bowl out and whisking together in it: the lime juice, white vinegar, fish sauce, granulated sugar, and the sesame oil.
  3. Once the pork’s cooked, take two tablespoons of the dressing and pour it into the skillet. Take half of the spinach and add that to the skillet as well. Once the spinach has wilted down some, add the other half of the spinach to the skillet, tossing the spinach pork mixture around in the skillet until all the spinach has wilted (should take only a minute or so to achieve). Take the skillet off the heat and pour the remaining dressing into the skillet, tossing the pork and spinach in the dressing. Serve the skillet mixture over your choice of rice or rice noodles and enjoy !

This turned out to be a good tasting recipe even if it’s not the best looking one we’ve ever made. We think it could be improved a little but otherwise we’d be willing to make it again !

Hope you enjoy life !
