Recipe: Pork & Cabbage Stir Fry

A quick and easy stir fry that goes well with brown rice or noodles.

As usual things from our garden are in italics.

Ingredients (for 4)

  • 450g pork cut into small strips
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese five spice
  • 1 x Onion sliced finely
  • garlic (according to taste)
  • 1 x large carrot cut into batons
  • 1/2 white cabbage shredded
  • 2 tbsp sherry or rice wine
  • 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • oil for frying





  • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the pork & five spice. Cook for a few minutes until golden brown then remove and set aside.
  • Put the onion & garlic into the pan and cook for a few minutes until soft;
  • Add the carrot, cabbage, sherry (or rice wine) and brown sugar. Season with pepper and stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  • Return the pork and heat through for another minute.

This should take about 10-12 minutes altogether so you’ve had time whilst doing this to cook the rice or noodles in the normal way.
