No cut of pork is better suited to stir fry than fillet. That said, this recipe assumes you have a good strong stove and a heavy based wok. If the answer to either is no, then always fry the pork in batches, in order to keep the heat high. Also, don’t overcook the vegetables – keep them crunchy.



  • 2 x 400g pork fillets, silverskin removed
  • Sea salt flakes and freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 6cm piece ginger, cut into fine batons
  • 4 cups mixed chopped vegetables (cauliflower, capsicum, snow peas, bean shoots)
  • ¼ cup dark soy sauce
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. 1.
    Use a sharp knife to slice the pork into fine strips, then season generously with salt and pepper and toss with half the sesame oil.
  2. 2.
    Fry the pork in a large heavy-based wok over a high heat for 5 minutes, until just browned, then set aside.
  3. 3.
    Pour the remaining oil into the wok and fry the garlic and ginger briefly, then add the vegetables and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. 4.
    Return the pork, pour in the soy, lemon juice and honey, mix well, then serve.
