The Pork and Marinade;
Place garlic and ginger into the Thermomix bowl and chop 4 sec/speed 6. Add all remaining marinade ingredients, except the pork loin, into the Thermomix bowl and combine 10 sec/speed 7. Cover the pork loin and marinate for at least 1 hour.
Cook marinated loin over a high heat in a drizzle of EVOO until browned. Set aside and rest for 10 minutes, before cutting into thick slices.
The Coconut Rice;
Place 1 litre of water into the Thermomix bowl and insert steaming basket. Weigh in the red rice and sprinkle with salt. Cook 30 min/100°C/speed 4 or until cooked. Drain and tip rice into a separate bowl. While still hot, stir through coconut cream, set aside.
To assemble, fill your bowls with the coconut rice, sliced onions, capsicum, pineapple, avocado, beans and the sliced pork plus a generous drizzle of paprika aioli. Place tortilla triangles in the bowl and garnish with lime cheeks, coriander and chilli. Serve warm or cold.
