Method

  1. Mix the pork medallions with the soy sauce and five-spice; leave to marinate for 5 mins. Heat a large non-stick pan, then fry the pork for 2-3 mins on each side until cooked through. Pour in 150ml boiling water with the honey and bubble for 2 mins. Mix the cornflour with a little water, stir into the sauce and cook until it thickens and is glossy.

  2. Meanwhile, make the fried rice. Pour the egg into a non-stick frying pan to make an omelette, cooking for 2 mins on each side. Remove, roll up, and cut into thin strips. Add the rice to the pan with the peas and stir-fry for 3-5 mins until piping hot, then gently stir through the omelette with the spring onions and seasoning and cook for 1 min. Serve with the pork and a dash more soy sauce.

This recipe is quick and delicious and I've made it several times, for my children and also when I've entertained girlfriends or my parents - and they all love it. My husband is vegetarian so I have a separate pan going with quorn fillets in the same sauce and he loves it too. You can usually get pork medallions on offer from the supermarket so it's a cheaper meal too.

One of mine and my flatmate's absolutely favourite recipes. I always add a bit more liquid, and scramble the egg instead for ease but this features very frequently in our house!

Why did you only give it 1 star when you seem to have liked it?

Loved this. Quick, easy & packed full of flavour. My only criticism would be that it uses a little too much five spice powder.

Absolutely lovely! Added a bit more five spice and more corn flour. Marinated the pork for a few hours as I got a few bits ready before going out. Definitely will do again, only change I will make is a bit more seasoning in the rice.
