A super simple but super yummy side that goes perfectly with pork.



*To make this dish sugar-free, be sure and choose a sugar free apple cider or apple juice.


Rinse rice in cold water. Combine rice and apple cider together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a low simmer and cook, covered, for about 45 min. until liquid is absorbed and rice is toothy but tender. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 10 min. Remove cover and stir in ground ginger. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serving Suggestions

Toss in fresh chopped apples, dried cranberries and/or nuts. Makes the perfect side to cool down our Squash & Sausage Ghost Curry. It's also lovely with our Grilled Chai Pork Chops & Gravy or Cambodian Lemongrass Chicken Curry.

This is a nice change for rice. I used 7/8 cup each homemade, spiced apple cider and chicken broth as well as half black japonica and half short-grain, brown rice and added 2 T. toasted, slivered almonds. I'm glad I halved the juice as it was sweet enough; the almonds were a great addition! I'm glad you mentioned nuts in the serving suggestions above.
