Sticky plum pork

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4 people

Preparation

1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the pork, in batches, on both sides, until golden.

2. Return all of the pork to the pan with the stir-fry sauce, star anise, chilli and two thirds of the ginger. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, until the pork is cooked through and the sauce is piping hot.

3. Meanwhile, heat the sesame oil in a wok and stir-fry the spring onions, pak choi and the remaining ginger for 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce and cook for 30 seconds.

4. Cook the rice following the pack instructions and serve with the pork and pack choi.

Little help: An easy way to peel ginger is to scrape off the skin with the tip of a teaspoon – as it’s thin it will come away easily.
