    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    • 1 bunch salad onions, washed and trimmed
    • 3 tsp oil
    • 300g pack Waitrose British Pork Stir Fry
    • 2.5cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and cut into thin strips (optional)
    • 150g pack trimmed mangetout peas, halved lengthways
    • 350g jar Waitrose Perfectly Balanced Sweet and Sour Sauce
    • 2 tsp sesame seeds
    • 300g pack Waitrose Egg Noodles Fresh To Wok


    1. First prepare the salad onions. Cut each one into 4 lengthways, then into long thin strips. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large wok or nonstick frying pan until very hot, then add the pork and ginger (if using) and cook over a high heat for 3-4 minutes until lightly browned, stirring often. Add half the prepared salad onions with half the mangetout and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.
    2. Pour over the sweet and sour sauce, stir well, then bring to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the pork is thoroughly cooked through.
    3. Meanwhile, place the sesame seeds in a small frying pan and lightly toast over a medium heat for 30 seconds to 1 minute, stirring all the time. Remove from the pan.
    4. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan. Add the rest of the mangetout and salad onions (reserving a few strips to garnish) and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the noodles and continue to stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until piping hot. Carefully combine with the pork mixture, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and garnish with the reserved salad onion. Divide between 2 plates to serve.

    Cook's tips

    A good stir-fry needs to be cooked quickly over a high heat. Ensure all ingredients are prepared ahead. Use chicken strips instead of pork, if you prefer.
