Ingredients (makes four portions)

  • 350g lean pork tenderloin, trimmed u 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsps hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 350g long-grain rice
  • 2 tbsps sunflower oil
  • Handful of cashew nuts, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 2 peppers, deseeded and cut into strips
  • 150g sugar snap peas u 2 spring onions, chopped
  • Chilli sauce

Method

Step 1: Chop the pork into bite-sized chunks. Toss it in the soy sauce, hoisin, honey and sesame oil. Leave to marinate for half an hour while you boil the rice.

Step 2: Heat a tablespoon of oil in a wok or wide frying pan. As the oil starts to smoke, add cashews and fry, moving them until they are browned. Lift them out and set them aside.

Step 3: Tip in the pork and hoisin-mix sauce. Fry quickly, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes: you want it to pick up a bit of colour and be about threequarters cooked but still a little pink in the middle. Remove from pan.

Step 4: Add the garlic, carrots, peppers, sugar snap peas and spring onions. Toss and fry until they start to soften, then tip the pork back in.

Step 5: Stir, scatter cashews and add chilli sauce to taste. Serve with rice.
