Pork and broccoli stir fry
Okay, so this is not an authentic Chinese dish and anyone who knows anything about Chinese food will probably recoil in horror at this little recipe.
But with its ginger, chilli, garlic and sesame seeds it is what I feel brings some Chinese flavours together in an easy to prepare dish that’s both filling and tasty too.
Now for all those who are trying to shift a few kilos just now. This stir fry recipe is super healthy and low in calories if you forego any added extras.
It will serve two people and if you want to pad things out and blast the diet completely then add some rice on the side.
I’ve used a whole lot of greens in this stir fry. Not only is there broccoli but also some kale, sugar snap peas and baby leeks too. Of course, you can use any greens you have to hand here.
Courgettes/zucchini would work well and spinach too.
This is a simple 2 step recipe
Simply mix up your marinade first and marinate the pork for an hour in the fridge.
Then it’s just a case of tossing everything in a wok and watching it cook in a matter of minutes.
