Before starting, wash and dry all produce.

Trim the snow peas, then cut in half. Thinly slice the green onions. Peel, then mince or grate the garlic. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add the sesame seeds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden-brown, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Transfer to a small bowl.


Add 3/4 cups water and 1/2 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and let stand, until bulgur is tender and liquid is absorbed, 15-16 min. Fluff bulgur with a fork.


Reheat the same large non-stick pan to medium-high. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp sesame oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the carrots and peas. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.


Reduce heat to medium, then add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pan. Add the garlic and pork. Cook, breaking up pork into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Remove the pan from heat. Stir in 1/2 tbsp plum sauce (dbl for 4 ppl) and toasted sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


Divide the bulgur between bowls. Top with the veggies, then the pork. Sprinkle the green onions over top.
