Method

  • Place the pork into a deep saucepan and cover with cold water and add the stock cubes.
  • Bring to the boil, then, really gently simmer until a blunt knife pierces easily, about 1 hour 15 minutes.
  • Once cooked, carefully remove and place on a baking tray and chill well, best overnight.
  • When ready to eat place all the ingredients for the sauce into a large wok or sauté pan and bring to the boil.
  • Turn down the heat and gently simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the pork from the fridge and cut into 2cm pieces and add to the glaze, coat well in the sauce and simmer for a further 8-10 minutes until the pork is warmed through and the glaze nicely coating the pork. Keep warm.

 

  • Heat the oil in a large wok add the mange tout and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the beans, peas and broad beans and cook for 2 minutes to defrost.
  • Add the pak choy, spinach and leaves if using and warm through until wilted.
