I'm not keen on stir fried pork with the wrong cut it can be tough and chewy.. However made this with chicken and trebled the sauce but didn't have any cornflour so reduced the sauce quickly for 5 mins. Then added mange tout instead of broccoli this was a really nice dish great with noodles and prawn crackers!! Yum yum

I also doubled the sauce and that was a good idea. Very tasty and easy served with rice.

I doubled the sauce as per previous comments and glad I did, there was enough to coat all the ingredients with a nice glaze. Unfortunately I used pork leg instead of pork fillet and the meat was a little tough. Otherwise this was very tasty, I'll definitely make it again.

Swapped the chilli sauce for a chopped chilli and the rice wine for a second tbsp of chicken stock. Tasty.
