A really lovely, tasty and quick dinner. The pork tasted lovely and the noodles and kale had a really zingy kick. Will definitely be making again.

All the family enjoyed this dish, but would have preferred it with an extra vegetable added to the kale. May try adding onion and red peppers next time. I would also up the ginger and five spice as the flavour was very subtle. Add surplus marinade to the stir fry to create some sauce.

Really enjoyed this. Really tasty and healthy too. Only change I made was to reduce the amount of noodles as the portion would have been massive otherwise - used 1 nest between 2 (bulks out a lot with all the kale)

So good and very easy to make, we actually chopped the pork when cooked and mixed it in with the noodles. Very tasty!

This was one of the easiest things I've ever made. I couldn't get kale so used pak choi and spinach instead. This is a keeper!

This was nice, but a little bit dry, so I added some sweet chilli sauce to the chops when they came out of the grill. I am now a big fan of kale cooked this way, delicious!

Loved this recipe! I used boneless pork chops, which took a bit longer to grill and I halved the recipe, although I still used a whole red chilli and added a squeeze of lime. Yum!

I used savoy cabbage and added a red onion, garlic and a red pepper to the stir fry. I was only cooking for two, but used the full amount of the sauce as in the recipe, marinated the pork then cooked on the hob for 20 minutes, kept them warm and added the rest of the marinade to the pan and brought it to the boil and then drizzled this delicious sauce over the mixed noodles and stir fry and topped it with the chops. Was absolutely delicious.
