- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce

How to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 425°. In a medium bowl, combine the pork with the garlic, ginger, scallions, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Stuff the chiles with the pork mixture, pressing down on the stuffing.
Arrange the stuffed chiles filling side up on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the panko. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the chiles are tender and the meat is firm and no longer pink.
Preheat the broiler. Broil the stuffed chiles 8 to 10 inches from the heat for about 2 minutes, until the bread crumbs are golden. Transfer to a platter and serve.
