Ingredients

  • 100g jasmine or basmati rice
  • 1 tbsp stir-fry oil (look out for Blue Dragon or Sharwood’s), or vegetable oil
  • 250g pork escalopes, sliced into thin strips
  • 1bunch spring onions , trimmed and sliced
  • 175g broccoli , broken into small, bite-sized florets
  • 3 celery sticks, sliced
  • 2heads of pak choi or bok choi, broken into separate leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 lime , finely grated zest and juice
  • a few thin slices of red chilli (optional)
  • sweet chilli sauce , to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the rice in plenty of lightly salted boiling water – it will take about 12 minutes.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the pork and stir-fry briskly for 3-4 minutes. Tip in the spring onions, broccoli and celery and stir-fry over a high heat for 4 more minutes, then add the pak or bok choi for a minute or so until the leaves have wilted. Toss in the coriander and lime zest, squeeze in a little lime juice and add the chilli slices if you are using them. Season with salt and pepper. Heap on to warmed plates and serve with the drained rice – and sweet chilli sauce, if you like.
