Beautiful! By far one of my favorite dishes to make. I always make it with mushrooms and onions. So healthy and a lot nicer than take-away.

I'm surprised so many people think this is a nice meal - it was tasteless and very dry. I followed the recipe exactly, and there was not nearly enough sauce (the only liquid is 1 tbsp water and 2 tbsp soy sauce, some of which obviously evaporates as the dish cooks). The taste was very bland, the only flavour coming from the soy sauce (of which there was not enough). Truly one of the worst stir fries I've ever tried. And using green mangetout and green pepper provides no colour contrast .

Just realised I forgot the sesame seeds at the end but it is really delicious. The textures and flavours work really well together.

Really yummy! I found it hard not to over cook the pork though. Also added a red pepper for some colour.

Yum! I didn't have any corn flour so used plain flour instead, worked well. Also I didn't have any green peppers so used sugar snap peas. So quick and easy to make and tasted so good. Would have this over a chinese take away any day and is so much healthier!

Lovely, quick and easy dish to make for a midweek meal. Best served with noodles than rice. Will make it again.
