Pork of sweet chilli ginger, soy + greens

Ingredients -

a tin of baby corn
a handful of snow peas
1 lemon (quartered)
5 shoots of spring onions (chopped into 5cm pieces)
3 florets of bok choi (chopped into small pieces)
1 head broccoli (chopped small)
a head of garlic (eqv. to 5 cloves, roughly chopped)
chilli flakes
chinese spice (optional)
2 teaspoons of minced fresh ginger (found at thomas dux)
loin of pork (shopped into small strips)
brown rice
sesame oil

Sauce -

sweet chilli
soy sauce
pinch of sugar

Marinade the pork for 20mins in Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce. Cook the brown rice for 15 mins (it usually takes longer than white rice, and I always use extra water. 1 part rice to 2 and a bit water)
Meanwhile chop all green ingredients and garlic and keep separated. Add the pork to a preheated wok (hot) and cook for only a few minutes (pork must remain tender as we will be adding it back into the pan towards the end). Take the pork out and put aside. Add to the hot pan, a little sesame oil, now add the broccoli, and cook for a few minutes. Add the chopped bok choi and corn and further cook until coated well. Then add the rest of the ingredients and cook, once you smell the aroma of all the flavours combined you know they are done. (Usually when bok choi begins to wilt) Now add the pork back in and 1 quarter of the lemon juice and sugar. Add some sweet chilli and soy as desired, plus a sprinkle of chilli flakes and chinese spice.
Serve the rice first and let air for a few moments. This helps the brown rice to dry a little. The add your stir fried ingredients, and serve.

Try some sesame seeds dusted on top for a little extra crunch.

I find colanders a very useful way to prepare my greens.

chopped garlic and minced ginger (in case you were wondering what the ingredients was on the right)

Hope you can enjoy my stir fry dish, or other delicious treats. Eat and drink well. What an amazing philosophy. xx
