I agree that if you grill the pork in the grill rather than using a grill pan on the hob it takes about 20 mins but is really succulent. I also left the meat in the marinade for about 10 mins before cooking and then added what was left of the marinade to the noodles and pak choi half way through cooking noodles. Thanks to everyones suggestions, it was excellent!

Really tasty, quick and cheap! Next time I make it I'm going to fry the noodles in the sauce too as it was a tiny bit dry.

Very bland even with chilli. Needs a sauce desparately! Would be better cooked in the oven in the marinade and served with the juices

I used half the amount of honey (as not to keen on my savoury food being too sweet), and added spring onions and orange pepper to the kale mix. Was a tasty midweek supper.

The pork was nice but the noodles with kale was a bit bland

Needed to cook the pork and kale for longer than recipe says but the finished dish was lovely and will certainly be cooking it again.

Very easy, my children loved it and cleared their plates. Substituted kale with pak choi and I used ready prepared chilli from a jar and was lovely. Will make again.
