Method

  1. Mix half the ginger with the soy, honey and five-spice in a shallow dish. Add the pork steaks and turn in the mixture to coat. Grill for 6-8 mins, turning once, until the pork is cooked and nicely browned.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following pack instructions. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan, then quickly fry the remaining ginger with the kale and chilli for 2 mins until wilted. Drain the noodles and add to the pan, tossing everything together. Serve with the pork steaks.

This was one of the easiest things I've ever made. I couldn't get kale so used pak choi and spinach instead. This is a keeper!

This was nice, but a little bit dry, so I added some sweet chilli sauce to the chops when they came out of the grill. I am now a big fan of kale cooked this way, delicious!

Loved this recipe! I used boneless pork chops, which took a bit longer to grill and I halved the recipe, although I still used a whole red chilli and added a squeeze of lime. Yum!

I used savoy cabbage and added a red onion, garlic and a red pepper to the stir fry. I was only cooking for two, but used the full amount of the sauce as in the recipe, marinated the pork then cooked on the hob for 20 minutes, kept them warm and added the rest of the marinade to the pan and brought it to the boil and then drizzled this delicious sauce over the mixed noodles and stir fry and topped it with the chops. Was absolutely delicious.

Good midweeker, used pork chops and grilled them, delicious. I did add soy to the noodles tho and was very moist and tasty!!

I agree that if you grill the pork in the grill rather than using a grill pan on the hob it takes about 20 mins but is really succulent. I also left the meat in the marinade for about 10 mins before cooking and then added what was left of the marinade to the noodles and pak choi half way through cooking noodles. Thanks to everyones suggestions, it was excellent!

Really tasty, quick and cheap! Next time I make it I'm going to fry the noodles in the sauce too as it was a tiny bit dry.

Very bland even with chilli. Needs a sauce desparately! Would be better cooked in the oven in the marinade and served with the juices

I used half the amount of honey (as not to keen on my savoury food being too sweet), and added spring onions and orange pepper to the kale mix. Was a tasty midweek supper.

The pork was nice but the noodles with kale was a bit bland

Needed to cook the pork and kale for longer than recipe says but the finished dish was lovely and will certainly be cooking it again.

Very easy, my children loved it and cleared their plates. Substituted kale with pak choi and I used ready prepared chilli from a jar and was lovely. Will make again.

Sounds very similar to what I did a few days ago.
Put smooth mustard, tabasco sauce, runny honey, juice from a lime, then the rest of the ime put into the marinade, whatever herbs and seasonings you like. Stirred it well, then added garlic cloves, quartered shallots, and a wedged apple.
Pork steaks - left to marinade - turned them a few times.
Then the whole dish into the preheated oven (gas 4) for maybe 20 minute., depending on how thick the steaks are.

Really easy, but I would go a bit scant on the chili-pepper next time. Jalapenos are what we have here in Korea, and they are rather fiery. I'd use a red bell pepper for colour and just a pinch of "gotchoo-kahroo" [jalapeno flakes] for fire.
