To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz (115g) ground pork
  • ¼ yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cups (100g) shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 scallion, chopped (optional)

Preparation

  1. Place the pork, onions, garlic, and ginger in the Anyday dish and mix well. Cover with lid (knob lifted) and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes, or until the pork is partially cooked and onions begin to soften.
  2. Add the cabbage and mix well, making sure to break the meat into smaller pieces. Continue cooking for 2 minutes, or until the cabbage is just wilted but remains crunchy.
  3. Season with the soy, sriracha, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Garnish with scallions, if desired.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • For a leaner dish, substitute pork with ground turkey or chicken. Try it with ground beef for a heartier dish.
  • Top with bean sprouts for a crunchy topping.
  • Add a poached egg for extra protein.

Recipe notes

  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
