4 Servings

  • approx 500 g pork stir-fry strips (you can ask your butcher to cut this for you from the leg, shoulder or any other lean part of the pork carcase)
  • 25 ml olive oil, or a little more if necessary
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 25 ml lime juice
  • 25 ml chopped coriander
  • 125 ml red, yellow and green sweet peppers, cut into strips
  • 125 ml mushrooms, sliced
  • 30 ml Thai fish sauce or light soy sauce

Heat the olive oil and fry the garlic and onion until soft. Add the lime juice, coriander and pork and stir-fry 5 minutes. Add more oil if needed, and add the peppers and mushrooms. Stir-fry until the pork is just cooked.

Add the fish sauce or soy sauce, honey and chillies and cook for another 5 minutes.
