This pork stir-fry has a sweet and sour edge with a BBQ flavour, served alongside some sesame charred broccoli!

Serves 3-4 Prep Time 10 Minutes Cook Time 15 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 500g pork belly slices, chops or steaks
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce (we love Lee Kum Kee)
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce (we love Kikkoman)
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar 
  • Sesame oil (we love Olivado)
  • ½ teaspoon Chinese five spice (we love Mrs Rogers)
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha sauce (or hot sauce)
  • Avocado cooking oil (we love Olivado)
  • ½ head fresh broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced

To serve: cooked rice

Method

  1. Combine hoisin sauce, apple juice, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, Chinese five-spice, star anise, tomato sauce and chilli sauce in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat drizzle of oil in a large pan over high heat. Pan fry the pork slices for 4-5 minutes each side, or until cooked through. Set aside, and reduce the pan heat to medium.
  3. Add sauce mixture to the pan, and simmer until the consistency becomes sticky and thick. Slice the pork and quickly stir through the sauce.
  4. To cook the broccoli, bring another pan to a high heat. Drizzle with avocado or sesame oil, then add the broccoli to the pan. Cook for a few minutes, then add the garlic. Continue to stir  fry until golden and tender.
  5. To serve, add spoonfuls of white rice to a bowl. Top with the broccoli and pork, then eat immediately.
