• 4 tbsp hoisin sauce, plus extra to serve
  • 1 pork fillet (about 400g), fat and sinew trimmed
  • 4 egg noodle nests
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 300g kale, spring greens or swiss chard, chopped
  • 100g spring onions, sliced
  • 200g frozen podded edamame beans or peas, defrosted
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Brush the hoisin all over the pork and transfer to a foil-lined baking tray. Roast, basting every 10 mins, for 25-30 mins until cooked through. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, cook the egg noodles following pack instructions, drain, then toss with 1 tsp sesame oil to stop them sticking together. Heat the remaining sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan, and fry the greens for 4 mins, adding a splash of water to help soften the stalks. Add most of the spring onions and all the edamame beans. Fry for another 2 mins until the greens are tender, then stir in the sesame seeds, soy sauce and rice vinegar. Toss everything to coat well.

  • STEP 3

    Cut the pork into thick slices and serve with the noodles, sesame greens and remaining spring onions sprinkled over the top. Serve with more hoisin sauce, if you like.
