  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 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.

Simply delicious!
Quick and easy to make using store cupboard staples. Full of of flavour, healthy and nutritious. This will definitely become a regular dinner staple for us from now on.

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.

Just marinaded the pork in the soy and 5 spice then put on griddle for 3min each side and left to rest . Made a good tasty midweek meal

Really love this quick and easy recipe, going to try a different meat next time! I do my rice slightly differently as I like to scramble the eggs and chuck the rice in the pan. But the meat was lovely, do agree with adding the cornflour a bit at a time, if I'd of put it all in it would of been a gloopy mess!

Liked this dish very much. Very tasty sauce in which I used more soy sauce and thickening granules, not cornflour.

used sweetcorn rather than peas as i lost my peas. worked well as a substitute

Can't believe its healthy! Really lovely dish, I overdid the 5 spice and soy so it was full of flavour - really delicious, loved by the kids too

And I forgot to add - as said before - ensure you add the cornflour bit by bit :)

FANTASTIC! I have to say - I did change this recipe slightly - I used twice the amount of 5 spice and 3 times the amount of soy sauce. I added the leftovers from the marinade when I added the water and honey. After I added the cornflour I ended up with a lovely velvety sauce - plenty of it too so no need to add egg to rice to make it more flavoursome. My hubby loved it! And so did I - I will certainly be making this more often - perhaps with chicken next time!

Really enjoyed this simple but honest recipe. Did not have a problem with anything sticking as I was using my new none stick pans and made sure they were really hot before adding the pork. Thought the dash of soy sauce was really needed at the end to tone down the sweetness and add some body.

I don't think you can go wrong with five-spice pork and fried rice! I really liked the marinade, but added too much corn flour at the end - make sure you add it bit by bit. I never pay attention when it says not to use oil, so sticking wasn't a problem for me.

I loved it! Very tasty and easy to prepare. The only thing is that the rice stuck a bit but maybe it's because of the type of rice I chose.

Was it deliberate not to use oil? Everything stuck... Other than that, nothing to write home about...
