  • 400g pork tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 200g radishes, halved
  • 500g cooked rice, cold
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • a thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 pak choi, cut into pieces
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced


  • STEP 1

    Cut the pork into 2cm slices and then into 2cm strips and season well. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large wok over a high heat until shimmering, then carefully add the pork and radishes, and fry for 2 minutes, tossing, until caramelised. Scoop out of the pan with a slotted spoon into a bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Add the remaining oil and the rice, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until starting to crisp, then turn down the heat to medium and add the onion, garlic, ginger, chilli and pak choi, and cook for 4-5 minutes. Return the pork and radishes to the pan, and cook for another minute before mixing together the hoisin, soy and vinegar, and adding to the pan. Toss for a few minutes until coated in the sauce.

  • STEP 3

    Divide between plates and top with the spring onions.
