This sauce is so delicious! And easy. I doubled up as suggested in the comments and I also added green beans and it was lovely. Made for good next day leftovers for work too.

This is one of the most delicious stir fry recipes I have ever tried. Unfortunately I forgot to double the sauce, so there wasn't quite enough but it was still great. The whole family loved it! I used normal broccoli as opposed to tenderstem as the family prefer it, substituted the rice wine for apple cider vinegar and omitted the red wine vinegar but still got fantastic results.

As with previous comments, glad I doubled the sauce quantity. Used a Korean chilli bean paste. It was absolutely delicious. Next time I will use less cornflour, so the sauce is still thick enough to coat the other ingredients but stay a little wetter.

I'm not keen on stir fried pork with the wrong cut it can be tough and chewy.. However made this with chicken and trebled the sauce but didn't have any cornflour so reduced the sauce quickly for 5 mins. Then added mange tout instead of broccoli this was a really nice dish great with noodles and prawn crackers!! Yum yum

I learned a trick from the Dumpling Sisters to tenderize meat. This works great for chicken breast and pork tenderloin. The meat has to be cut into medium to small pieces. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda for every pound of meat. Mix until meat is evenly coated and let sit 20 minutes. Wash the meat and dry thoroughly. When you cook it up the meat will be very tender.

I also doubled the sauce and that was a good idea. Very tasty and easy served with rice.

I doubled the sauce as per previous comments and glad I did, there was enough to coat all the ingredients with a nice glaze. Unfortunately I used pork leg instead of pork fillet and the meat was a little tough. Otherwise this was very tasty, I'll definitely make it again.
