  • For the pork
  • 500g diced pork
  • 1 small bunch coriander
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 red chillies
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4cm piece of ginger
  • 3 tablespoons of clear honey
  • 1 teaspoon chinese five spice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil (olive oil if you have not got any)
  • For the noodle accompaniment
  • 400g pack of stir fry vegetables or
  • 2 pak choi
  • 5 baby sweetcorn
  • 1 carrot
  • 250g egg noodles
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • handful of chopped coriander


    1. For the pork marinade, place the diced pork into an ovenproof dish. Finely chop the coriander, spring onions, red chillies, garlic and ginger and add to the pork. Pour over the honey, soy sauce and oil, add the chinese 5 spice and give it a good mix, so the pork is fully coated. Cover with foil and put in the fridge for 4-6 hours.
    2. When the pork has finished marinating, preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan assisted.
    3. When the oven has reached the right temperature, put the foil covered pork on a middle shelf. The pork should take 30 mins to cook, stir it halfway through and remove the foil for the last 10 mins.
    4. Meanwhile, slice the vegetables and boil the noodles according to the pack instructions. Once the noodles have cooked and are being strained, heat the oil in a wok. It is important that the noodles dry out as much as possible. When the oil is hot add the vegetables, you do not want them to fry to quickly so put them on a low heat. Test the vegetables after 7 mins, they should still slightly crunchy.
    5. Next, add the soy sauce, the noodles and the pork with the juice from the oven dish, carry on frying that for 1 min, garnish with the chopped coriander and it is ready to serve!
