Chinese Stir Fried Pork with Oyster Sauce


I was looking for a quick and easy mid week meal.

I found the pork chops in the freezer, so I defrosted those. To save time, I used a packet of stir fry vegetables I had picked up from the local supermarket on my way home.

Originally I had planned on using fresh ginger and honey, but having no ginger, I found a bottle of oyster sauce and went with that instead!

The sauce wonderfully coats the vegetables and pork. The sauce is sweet and tangy with a gentle chilli hit at the end.

This took no longer than 15 minutes to prepare and cook! Well under the time it took for the rice to steam!
