Brown Basmati Rice
Sugar Snap Peas
Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil with a pinch of salt. Wash the rice under running water for 30 seconds (important step!). Add your rice to the pot and cook for 10 mins on the heat, then remove from the heat with the lid on for 10 mins.
Cut the red onion in half through the root, peel and thinly slice into half moon shapes. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press if you have one). Finely chop the red chilli and roughly chop the coriander. Thinly slice the celery widthways. Remove the core from the yellow pepper and chop into 3cm chunks. Peel the ginger using the edge of a spoon and grate.
Cut the pork into 2cm chunks, then dab it dry with kitchen paper (if you have some). Toss your pork in the cornflour together with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Heat a splash of oil in a non-stick frying pan on high heat. Once really hot, carefully add your pork (it might sputter a bit). Stir-fry your pork for 3 mins. Remove your pork from the pan and cover in tinfoil to keep warm. Tip:The pork is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle
Heat a splash of oil to the now empty pan and add your onion, garlic, chilli and ginger. After 1 minute, add your pepper and cook for 2 mins more. Add the sugar snap peas and your celery and cook for 1 minute. Add a splash of water, cover the pan and cook for another 2 mins.
Squeeze a good splash of lime juice into the hoisin sauce. Take the lid off your veggies and add your hoisin sauce together with your pork. Toss everything together for 1 minute and then serve your stir-fry with your brown rice on the side and your coriander sprinkled over.
