In a large saucepan, combine the stock, rice, garlic and 6 cups (1.5L) water. Season. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and partially cover the saucepan with a lid. Simmer, stirring occasionally to prevent grains sticking to the bottom of the pan, for 1 1/4 hours or until the mixture thickens and is creamy (the liquid will reduce by about half).
Meanwhile, to make the chilli oil, in a small saucepan, combine the chilli and oil. Season. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 mins or until the chilli shrivels and is just beginning to darken. Set aside for 10 mins to cool. Transfer the mixture to a blender and carefully blend for 1 min or until almost smooth.
In a medium bowl, toss the pork with the oyster sauce and half the soy sauce. Set aside for 15 mins to develop the flavours.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the pork, in batches, for 2 mins each side or until browned and cooked through.
In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, sugar, ginger and remaining soy sauce. Brush a little of the vinegar mixture over the pork.
Divide the rice mixture among serving bowls and top with pork. Drizzle with a little chilli oil and the remaining vinegar mixture. Sprinkle with spring onion and coriander.
COOK. STORE. SAVE.
Store any leftover chilli oil in an airtight glass jar in the pantry for up to 1 week. Use it to add a little heat to dishes such as pasta, fried eggs, cucumber salad and noodle stir-fries.
