Great recipe, lots of flavour (although we upped the sauces). Similar to other comments, we felt there wasn't quite have enough for 4 servings (but admittedly, we went back for generous seconds because it was so delicious), so might bulk it up with vegies next time - thinking oyster mushrooms would work well.

This is one of those recipes that's so easy and quick it seems it can't possibly be much good. Wrong. It's absolutely delicious, and leaves us wanting to eat it again even though we've actually had enough. We think the quantities are spot-on, and it's dead easy to halve if only two are eating. Six stars!

I made this for dinner last night and it was so tasty! Really quick and easy to make and so delicious - highly recommend for a mid week supper.

Substituted mixed variety of stir fry veg for the beans and added generous amounts of bean sprouts - very tasty.

Very easy, quick and tasty - could definitely use larger portions though! (Which is fine, if you're not on a diet!) Bit on the salty side, might bulk out with mushrooms/water chestnuts next time.

Just made this for the family exactly as the recipe said, served with fine egg noodles and we all loved it. However we all agreed that that our portion sizes were a little small!! Next time I will add twice as much sauce and double the vegetables too. Really tasty meal which is so quick to prepare.

Used 100ml oyster sauce and increased other sauce ingredients accordingly (using sweet chilli sauce). Added mangetout and sliced red pepper and cooked the vegetables shorter than the recipe said, because I like them crunchy. Also, you have to be careful not to overcook the pork. But the result was delicious, one of the best stir-fries I've done for a long time! Will definitely do this one again.

Very tasty, a great success: even those who normally complain as soon as they see a green bean, have emptied their plates!

Made this for dinner tonight and was tasty enough for adults and mild enough for my 2 children. Also healthy and economical, used spinach instead of beans and sweet chilli sauce instead of chilli bean sauce. Will def make again.

Halved meat but used same quantities as above. Used half teaspoon of hot chipotle paste. Fantastic flavours, very yummy and so quick. Will def be making again.

Absolutely fantastic! Healthy & cheap to make. I didn't have chilli paste so used chilli sauce instead. Was full of flavour and texture with a subtle hint of chilli, beautiful. Will definitely be making this again!

Very nice, quick and easy.
We didn't have lime juice so used lemon instead and used 1/2 tblsp chilli sauce instead of paste. As there are only 2 of us we just used half the amount of meat. The calorie count went up by about 30 per portion but still very healthy.
Will be doing this one again.

Does the calorie count include the rice?

goodfoodteam's picture

Thanks for getting in touch. No the rice isn’t included in this. As a tip for the future if an ingredient says "to serve", but doesn’t give a quantity, it is just a suggestion, so the calories will not be included as part of the recipe.

Can you replace the chilli bean with yellow bean?

goodfoodteam's picture

Yes it is perfectly ok to swap the chilli bean for the yellow bean sauce.
