With the Beijing Olympics coming up here’s an easy, tasty stir fry recipe to get you in the mood from a nicely illustrated cook book called Cooking for One or Two which is really useful if you often cook for yourself (see below). The only amendment I’d suggest is to use dried egg noodles which are cheaper than fresh ones. (Obviously soak them following the pack instructions before adding them to the wok)

Preparation time 5 minutes

Calories per portion 596 Kcal
Fat per portion 21g, of which saturated 4.6g
Serves 2

Toasted sesame oil 2 tbsp
Boneless loin pork steaks 2 with fat removed and cut into thin strips
Stir-fry mix 220g pack containing red onion, Chinese broccoli, red pepper and spinach
Fresh egg noodles 350g pack
Sweet chilli dipping sauce 2–3 tbsp

1 Heat the oil in a wok until it is very hot, add the strips of pork and stir-fry for about 3 minutes.

2 Add the pack of stir-fry vegetables and continue stir-frying for another 3 minutes or until the spinach starts to wilt.

3 Add the noodles with the chilli sauce and cook for a further 3 minutes or until everything is tender and cooked.

Shopper’s tip
Toasted sesame oil is available in small bottles in the Oriental section of supermarkets and the flavour that it gives to stir-fries is fantastic. Sweet chilli dipping sauce you’ll find near by and this is perfect to add to stir-fries to give the dish a bit of sweetness and heat.
