Sticky peanut pork with stir-fried purple sprouting broccoli

Although it loses its purple colour when cooked, purple sprouting broccoli has a stronger, sweeter flavour than its green cousin, which works perfectly with bold, salty Asian ingredients like soy sauce

Step by step

Kitchen tip
This recipe would work well with chicken if you don’t want to use pork, or make it veggie and swap in a block of firm tofu instead (press excess water from the tofu before marinating, so it takes on more flavour).
  1. Marinate the pork ahead of cooking: mix together the sesame oil, honey, peanut butter and soy. Put the pork medallions in a shallow dish with the marinade and turn to coat. Cover and leave in the fridge for up to 3 hours, removing from the fridge 15 minutes before cooking them.
  2. For the stir-fry, blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, adding the beans for the final minute. Drain and refresh in cold water to halt the cooking process.
  3. Scatter the chopped peanuts over the pork medallions. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and fry the pork with all the marinade for 10-12 minutes, turning 2-3 times while cooking. Add a splash of cold water towards the end of the cooking time to ensure you keep a sauce-like consistency.
  4. Meanwhile, for the stir-fry, heat the sesame oil in a wok or frying pan and stir-fry the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli for 4-5 minutes over a medium-high heat, before adding the broccoli and beans. Continue to stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, then add the soy and hoisin sauces. Fry for a further minute.
  5. When the pork is cooked, remove from the pan and let rest for a few minutes, then thickly slice. Serve with the stir-fried veg, rice and any peanut sauce from the pan.
