Asian Spiced Pork

I'm absolutely in love with this dish. It's soo tasty, packed full of gentle spice and delicious flavours. It's a great go-to meal now the night's are drawing in, and so simple to cook - you only need one pan!

Whenever I make this I always batch cook so that there's at least four or five portions worth, so it's perfect to make for the week ahead.

To make, you'll need:

  • 500g lean pork mince (I use 5%)
  • 1 large red onion, sliced finely into small pieces
  • 4 big carrots, diced into small cubes 
  • 1 courgette, diced into pieces
  • 1 glove garlic, crushed
  • 4 tablespoons tamarind sauce
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons reduced salt soy sauce 
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala 
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Black pepper, to season
Chop all your veg into tiny chunks. Heat a large frying pan with the sesame oil and add your onion and garlic. It should start to smell amazing. After the onions have turned a golden brown, add your carrots and courgette. Sprinkle over the garam masala, stirring so all the veg is covered. 

Next, add your pork and break up the mince. Let everything mix together for five minutes, then add the tamarind sauce, coating all the ingredients. After this, add the fish sauce and soy sauce and again, stir thoroughly. 

Pop the heat on a medium level and cook for a further 15 minutes until the pork is cooked through.

Serve, and enjoy!

The other great little thing about this is its versatility - it goes with so much. I like it simply with warm rice, but black beans would go really well for a bit of a 'taco' feel. It's also great in a wrap with iceberg lettuce, or on its own with a simple green salad.
