Method

  1. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the noodles following pack instructions. Meanwhile, mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp water, then stir in the soy sauce and honey, and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok over a high heat. Add the pork and cook for 2 mins until browned all over. Add the ginger, garlic, pepper and mangetout, and cook for a further 2 mins. Reduce the heat, then add the soy and honey mixture, stirring and cooking until the sauce bubbles and thickens. Divide the drained noodles between 2 bowls. Top with the pork and vegetables, and finish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Average: a bit bland tasting and needs tweaking, for me. Like other posters I found the inclusion of a 'green pepper' a bit odd given you also use mange tout (and I think colour does matter in terms of presentation), but that's easily remedied, just use a red pepper instead. Others have found the sauce too sweet but for me it needed more honey (I really couldn't taste it through the soy). I've not given up on it and will add onions and mushrooms next time I cook it. And a bit more honey.

Delicious but can be a bit dry so added a small amount of chicken stock to get more sauce-even the little ones loved it!

Cooked exactly to the recipe and loved it. Had it 3 times since and cooked for family!

Delicious! I added some stem broccoli and one Birdseye chilli which is worth it if you like a spicy stir fry. I added some soy sauce and pepper when frying the pork for a little more flavour. Would definitely cook this again.

Ps added more soy sauce as it was a little too sweet at first taste

Used this recipe tonight with leftover pork from Sunday roast. Doubled quantities for sauce and used a bag of tesco value stir fry instead of other veg. Used good food recipe for egg fried rice instead of noodles. Delicious! So easy and a good way to use up leftovers.
Five stars :D

I knew this was a great recipe when my kids sampled it and actually liked, as it's always a risk trying something new. If anything it was maybe a little too sweet, but still a winner.

Beautiful! By far one of my favorite dishes to make. I always make it with mushrooms and onions. So healthy and a lot nicer than take-away.

I'm surprised so many people think this is a nice meal - it was tasteless and very dry. I followed the recipe exactly, and there was not nearly enough sauce (the only liquid is 1 tbsp water and 2 tbsp soy sauce, some of which obviously evaporates as the dish cooks). The taste was very bland, the only flavour coming from the soy sauce (of which there was not enough). Truly one of the worst stir fries I've ever tried. And using green mangetout and green pepper provides no colour contrast .

Just realised I forgot the sesame seeds at the end but it is really delicious. The textures and flavours work really well together.

Nice meal, double the amounts for the sauce.

Really yummy! I found it hard not to over cook the pork though. Also added a red pepper for some colour.

Yum! I didn't have any corn flour so used plain flour instead, worked well. Also I didn't have any green peppers so used sugar snap peas. So quick and easy to make and tasted so good. Would have this over a chinese take away any day and is so much healthier!

Lovely, quick and easy dish to make for a midweek meal. Best served with noodles than rice. Will make it again.

This recipe looks delicious & easy which is what I look for since I work full time, will definitely try it out & add some more veg to be more filling & healthy.

This is wonderfully quick and very tasty. I used Agave Syrup instead of honey and substituted 1 tbsp of Soy sauce with 1 tbsp of chinese vinegar. The vinegar thins the sauce slightly, as suggested in previous comments and gives a good sharpness to compliment the gingers wamth.
I'll definately be trying this again!
