  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 500 g piece pork tenderloin
  • 2 nests medium egg noodles
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • Vegetables: baby sweetcorn pepper, sugar snap peas (whichever ones you like)
  • small bunch spring onion


Prepare the pork and vegetables

  • Trim any excess fat from the meat and cut into bite size pieces. Cut up the peppers and any other vegetables you’re using.

Prepare the sauce

  • Measure the soy sauce, ketchup, honey and Chinese five spice into a bowl. Add the pork and give it a stir so all the meat is coated.

Cook the noodles

  • Add the noodles to a pan and cook according to the packet instructions. (We just added boiling water and cooked for a few minutes.) Drain and keep back a little (50ml) of water.

Cook the stir fry

  • Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the pork and sauce and cook for a few minutes until the meat has browned. Add the vegetables and spring onions and continue to stir fry. Add the remaining noodle water to help steam the vegetables.
  • Add the cooked noodles to the wok and stir so everything is coated in the sauce.
