• Boil the kettle. Finely chop garlic. Drain sweetcorn (see ingredients). Roughly chop baby spinach leaves. • Half-fill a medium saucepan with boiling water. Add basmati rice and a pinch of salt and cook over a high heat until tender, 12 minutes. • Drain rice and return to saucepan. Add chicken-style stock powder and stir to combine. Set aside.


• In a medium bowl, combine pork mince, egg, fine breadcrumbs, All-American spice blend and garlic. Season with salt. • Using damp hands, roll heaped spoonfuls of pork mixture into small meatballs. Transfer to a plate. You should get 4-5 meatballs per person.


• In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook meatballs, turning, until browned and cooked through, 8-10 minutes (cook in batches if your pan is getting crowded). • Remove the pan from the heat, then add BBQ sauce, sriracha and a splash of water to pan. Turn meatballs to coat. • Meanwhile, combine slaw mix, sweetcorn, baby spinach and a drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil in a large bowl. Season to taste.


• Divide rapid rice, buffalo BBQ-glazed pork meatballs (plus any remaining glaze) and corn slaw between plates. • Serve with mango mayonnaise.
