Ingredients

Serves: 2 people

  • 50 g Broccoli
    broken into spears
  • 1 - Red Pepper
    sliced
  • 75 g SuperValu Mangetout
  • 1 medium SuperValu Onion
    sliced
  • 1 - SuperValu Quality Irish Pork Chops
    from the Butcher Counter
  • 200 g SuperValu Rice
    cooked according to the packet instructions
Batter
  • 75 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Cornflour
From the Store Cupboard
  • 1 tbsp Plain Flour
  • 0 tbsp SuperValu Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu White Wine Vinegar

Method

Batter

  1. Sieve 75g plain flour and the cornflour into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the chilli powder if you are using it.
  3. Whisk in the water and whisk to combine until a thick, lump free, batter has been achieved.
  4. Meanwhile heat a deep fat fryer until it heated through.
  5. To test if the oil is sufficiently heated, drop a cube of bread into the oil - if the oil is sufficiently hot it will turn golden brown within 30 seconds.

Pork Stir Fry

  1. With a sharp knife slice the pork into very thin pieces.
  2. Put 1 tablespoon of plain flour in a large bowl, add in the thin strips of pork and mix well to ensure that the pork is thoroughly coated. Shake off the excess flour and transfer the pork to the batter.
  3. Mix the pork around and then carefully drop the pork pieces into the hot oil and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Drain onto kitchen paper.
  4. Meanwhile heat a large wok with a little oil.
  5. Add in the sliced onion, red pepper, mangetout and broccoli and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add in the sugar, chilli powder and the wine vinegar and cook for a further 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly to stop the mixture from burning.
  7. Then add the battered pork into the wok and mix well.
  8. Serve immediately with some boiled rice.

Top Tip

For an even crispier batter use either sparkling water or beer.
