Method

  1. Mix the pork medallions with the soy sauce and five-spice; leave to marinate for 5 mins. Heat a large non-stick pan, then fry the pork for 2-3 mins on each side until cooked through. Pour in 150ml boiling water with the honey and bubble for 2 mins. Mix the cornflour with a little water, stir into the sauce and cook until it thickens and is glossy.

  2. Meanwhile, make the fried rice. Pour the egg into a non-stick frying pan to make an omelette, cooking for 2 mins on each side. Remove, roll up, and cut into thin strips. Add the rice to the pan with the peas and stir-fry for 3-5 mins until piping hot, then gently stir through the omelette with the spring onions and seasoning and cook for 1 min. Serve with the pork and a dash more soy sauce.

We really enjoyed this, including my boys of 18 months and 4 years. I doubled the onions and used more rice (225g before cooking). Definitely going to be a regular on our menu!

Made this yesterday, I'm not usually a big fan of Chinese food, preferring Indian but I must say this was really tasty, although I thought the sauce was a little too sweet for my liking so I made a little adjustment and added a bit more 5 spice and a couple of tablespoons of light soy sauce and left it to simmer for another 5 mins and I preferred the less sweet taste. All plates were cleared so it's a thumbs up from the rest of my family too.

Both parts of the dish are awesome!
I now often make the fried rice to go with sweet chilli chicken as it tastes very authentic!

I've made this one a few times now, and it's always delicious. It does take three pans (rice, sauce and meat, and egg), so a bit of a faff.

My advice would be to have all your ingredients fully ready before you start, otherwise it's easy to get timings wrong. Otherwise, it's pretty easy.

Oh, and I left out the peas too, as my household is rather fussy and served with green beans :-P

This is SO tasty! I did make some changes though... As I wanted less to have to wash up, I added my rice directly to the meat, and then added the beaten egg and spring onion, all in the same pan. It made quite a dry stir fry, but full of flavour and the meat was anything but dry! Cannot wait to make this again, quick, easy, and yummy!

This recipe is quick and delicious and I've made it several times, for my children and also when I've entertained girlfriends or my parents - and they all love it. My husband is vegetarian so I have a separate pan going with quorn fillets in the same sauce and he loves it too. You can usually get pork medallions on offer from the supermarket so it's a cheaper meal too.

Absolutely delicious. Cooked just as said. Making it again tonight.

One of mine and my flatmate's absolutely favourite recipes. I always add a bit more liquid, and scramble the egg instead for ease but this features very frequently in our house!

Really liked this, the pork can get dry if you're not careful but the flavor is great

Why did you only give it 1 star when you seem to have liked it?

Loved this. Quick, easy & packed full of flavour. My only criticism would be that it uses a little too much five spice powder.

Absolutely lovely! Added a bit more five spice and more corn flour. Marinated the pork for a few hours as I got a few bits ready before going out. Definitely will do again, only change I will make is a bit more seasoning in the rice.
