Method

Tip all the ingredients, except the spring onion greens, into a large saucepan, put the lid on and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook, without boiling, for about 8 mins, until the pork has changed colour and the greens are cooked, but still a bit crunchy. Ladle into bowls, scatter with the spring onion and serve with boiled rice or noodles on the side.

Found this recipe a bit plain, so I added some fish sauce, oyster sauce and white pepper (and more chillies for those who are up for it). It's amazing now. Truly asian!

Had this for dinner this evening, it was ok but not what I was expecting. I might try chicken next time as I think it could work better but I am not in a hurry to make it again.

I love this dish! It's super simple and I had it with egg noodles. Can make variants of it with chicken/different vegetables. This recipe is a keeper!

Delicious!
I made this last night, it made a really good noodle soup, and the mix was just as tasty on it's own too. It had a really nice combination of oriental flavours. I might try and replace the green leaves for bamboo shoots, sweetcorn, beansprouts, carrot etc. in the future though, but I will definitely make it again, and again...and again. I used it with That seven-spice instead of five-spice, because I didn't have the latter, and it worked out nicely

Good, simple recipe which I see as a base; I added more ingredients to suit my tastes such as lemongrass. But perfect, quick and easy in the original format too.

I made this using chicken instead of pork as that's what I had in. I also added noodles into the pot and a splash of fish sauce. Thought it was simple, filling and tasty. A good quick meal to whip up in a hurry. Next time I'll use pork as I think it goes well with five spice, and will probably add more vegetables.

Tried it, but it didn't really work for us - the smells combined weren't the nicest. It didn't taste too bad, but there are many other tasty recipes on this site to try instead.

Added a Tbsp of oyster sauce instead of soy sauce tasted really nice, yum yum.

Delicious! Added more water and soy than suggested and smidge less of the 5 spice but that was to my taste. Will definitley make it again with the addition of noodles, slurp slurp!

I adore this recipe. It is one of my all-time faves. I add garlic to it too, and sometimes a handful of beansprouts at the very very end.

(And to be honest I add WAY more soy sauce, but I don't recommend it since my salt tolerance is insane!)

I also tried it with noodles but with 2 tsp of five spice and enjoyed it. Cooking for 8 minutes is probably the maximum time needed, the pork was a bit overcooked so I'd do it for a slightly shorter time.

Delicious, used only one and a half teaspoons of five spice powder and that was plenty also cooked noodles in with it, will definately make again.
