600g Specially Selected Pork fillet

For the sauce:

1 large red pepper

4 spring onions

3 cloves garlic

300g fresh pineapple

35ml white wine vinegar

35g tomato ketchup

35ml light soy sauce

35ml lemon juice

35ml rapeseed oil

15g piece fresh peeled ginger

For the pork

15ml lemon juice

15ml light soy sauce

20g cornflour

Rapeseed oil to fry

Fresh chopped coriander to sprinkle


For the sauce:

Chop the red pepper into thin strips, discarding any white pith and seeds. Wipe, trim and cut the spring onions into thin strips.

Peel and finely chop the garlic and finely chop the ginger. Chop the pineapple into small pieces.

In a wok heat the oil and add the peppers, spring onion, garlic and ginger and fry for two minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients for the sauce and bring to the boil, then put this to the side while you cook the pork.

Cut the fillet in half lengthways, then cut the pork into thin strips.

Place the pork in to a bowl along with the extra soy sauce and lemon. Stir to coat the pork. Add the cornflour to the pork bowl and mix well.

Heat some oil in a large frying pan and sauté the pork on a high heat for four minutes (You may have to do this in batches if your pan isn’t big enough. Be mindful not to crowd the pan.)

When cooked transfer the pork to the wok where the sauce is. Gently heat through until the sauce is piping hot and has thickened slightly.

Serve topped with chopped coriander and steamed rice.
