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 <em>panko</em>. 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.
