Really enjoyed this. Really tasty and healthy too. Only change I made was to reduce the amount of noodles as the portion would have been massive otherwise - used 1 nest between 2 (bulks out a lot with all the kale)

So good and very easy to make, we actually chopped the pork when cooked and mixed it in with the noodles. Very tasty!

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
