Pork & Pak Choi Stir-Fry


Serves 4
Ensure that you have all the vegetables and pork prepped before you start cooking. Once you get going there is no time to be chopping again! The process moves on fast… Don’t bother about cooking rice if it’s too late, one of those ready cooked noodles in the bag is just fine at that hour. It is a one pot and very easy to get it done in a rush. Pak choi is very convenient and bulks a stir fry when catering for a crowd.
