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.

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.

This was really quick and easy to make. we used a tiny bit of oil in the pan to stop it sticking and followed the advice about adding the corn flower slowly.
We will be making this again especially as the meat is very cheap.

This is actually really good. The sauce for the pork is very nice indeed, and I didn't think that making egg fried rice would be so easy! For all my other skills in cooking, I can't seem to make an omelette - but semi-scrambled eggs works just as well for the rice!

Really enjoyed this meal, really quick and easy. We also have the rice part to this dish with the easy sweet and sour chicken recipe also on bbc good food which is also a fab recipe.
