  1. Put the pork, hoisin and soy sauce in a bowl and allow to stand for 10 mins. Heat the grill to high, shake off any excess sauce, then lay the pork on a tray. Grill for 5 mins, turning halfway, until cooked through. Remove and leave to rest in a warm place for 5 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, put the broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl with 4 tbsp water, cover with cling film, then microwave on High for 3 mins. Heat the oil in a wok, add the garlic and ginger, and stir-fry for 1 min. Add the spring onions and bok choi, then stir-fry for a further 2 mins. Tip in the broccoli with a dash of soy sauce and stir-fry for 1-2 mins more until the veg is warmed through. Serve the pork with the greens, a drizzle of any resting pork juices and rice or noodles, if you like.

Great quick and easy! Tasted awesome, especially the greens cooked in garlic and ginger! Nice yummy sticky burnt sauce on the meat added to the flavour. Will try with chicken next week... 5*....

This is a really great quick midweek meal. My boyfriend and I are trying to eat healthier so this is perfect for us. I serve it with a small portion of brown rice and it's really filling. The only problem, for me personally, is the ginger. It's too strong for me so next time I think I'll grate it rather than shred it

I did this with chicken. It's pretty basic, very easy but really yum. Good mid week dinner.
