i found this very sweet, dry and if i did not remove the pork while cooking the veg it would have been tough. I made the adjustment of red pepper as all green looked unappealing to the eye, some Chinese 5 spice, more water and soy as its was too dry. Also tried to sharpen it with lime juice but nothing i added seemed to help over all taste. Do not use straight to wok noodles (only ones i had) as i am sure they sucked what juice there was out and had to keep adding water that also affected the flavours

Simple but effective recipe. Added slightly more ginger for flavour but overall really tasty and really quick. Substituted mange tout for frozen green beans (cooked them before adding).

Nice dish, we added some hoisin sauce because they flavours weren't strong enough for us and to dim down the sweetness (my husband isn't a big fan of sweet main meals). Turned out really well, will make again.

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.
