Tonight’s fifteen-minute recipe is an explosion of fresh flavours and one that you’ll be coming back to time and time again. Pork mince is stir-fried with juicy shiitake mushrooms, fresh coriander, garlic, ginger and Chinese leaf (a member of the cabbage family), and coated in a glossy soy and ketjap manis sauce before being served on top of bowlfuls of steaming rice. Top with a sprinkling of chopped coriander and a good squeeze of lime and you’re good to go. Fast cooking never tasted so good.
