Our 25 minute recipe
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Use a sharp knife to make 4 or 5 slashes along the pork fillet. Mix the Hoi Sin Sauce and the Black Bean Paste together in a bowl and marinate the pork in the mixture, getting it right into the cuts. Put the pork on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 20 mins.
Pour 300ml of boiling water into a saucepan, add the rice and stir gently. Bring the rice to the boil, then turn the heat down to low, cover, and cook for 15 mins, or cook as per packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. If you are using garlic, add it to the oil now and fry for 1 min. Add most of the spring onions (keep some back for garnish) and pak choi and stir-fry until they begin to wilt (about 5 mins). Take the pan off the heat and add the Soy & Red Miso Sauce. Stir through thoroughly.
Place a portion of rice and vegetables onto each plate. When you’re ready, cut the pork into 2cm wide slices and rest on top of the rice. Garnish with the rest of the spring onions and serve!

This dish isn’t very saucy but it’s nice, very enjoyable.
Darren - Nov 15, 2018
The pork and the pak choi was to die for, maybe more sauce required for the pak Choi. Wasn’t over keen with having rice with the dish seemed very bland.
Vicki - Nov 15, 2018
Caroline - Nov 13, 2018
I like more sauce so this wasn’t for me.
Graeme - Nov 11, 2018
Very bland, very tasteless, very watery. This was a bit of a disappointment but it’s cool I’ll just stick to the Vietnamese Pork fillet, which is amazingly good, from now on
Kathryn - Nov 10, 2018
After reading the reviews about the pork being dry I did mine in the slow cooker. Ended up a bit like pulled pork but was quite nice. Overall an ok dish but don't think I'd order again

Preferred it with pork chops
Claire - Oct 22, 2018
Would have been nice if I hadn’t over cooked the pork ???? nice flavours.
Penelope - Oct 21, 2018
Nice flavours. The trick here is to use pork that has some fat on it so that it stays moist and then to slice really thinly. I liked the stir fried vegetables.
