Method

  1. Place the rice in a saucepan with 300ml boiling water. Bring to the boil, stir once, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 mins, by which time the rice should have absorbed all the liquid and be perfectly cooked. Dry-fry the sesame seeds until toasted golden, then tip into a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan or wok, add the pork and peppers and stir-fry for 5-6 mins over a high heat until the pork is lightly browned and cooked through. Mix the cornflour and soy sauce together in a bowl, then add the lime juice, honey, chilli and sesame seeds, plus 6 tbsp cold water. Pour into the wok and cook until the sauce has slightly thickened, tossing the pan to coat the pork and peppers. Serve with the rice.

It was nice... but average. I've cooked much better in the past!

Very easy and quick to make. It was better than a takeaway (and cheaper too!!).

this went down a treat with me and the hubby. Very fast and very good. I had to add more water and next time I would add more soy but top marks from me!

I was so looking forward to making this, but when i did i found it to not be as nice as it looks. It was definitely too sweet - i agree with the other reviewer there was way too sweet. i also thought there was too much lime juice too so i would cut that down. I ended up having to rescue the stir fry with other ingredients because it was unbearably sweet and acidic...

won't be making it agin :(
