Ingredients

  • 420g pack pork fillet, trimmed and sliced into medallions
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chinese five-spice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 225g cooked rice
  • 200g frozen pea, defrosted
  • 2 spring onions, sliced

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.
