So, if you have been following my Slimming World series, you will know that I have become partial to the odd Fakeaway! Although this recipe requires a few different ingredients, it is easy to make and tastes great.
You will need:
Low calorie cooking spray
Pork fillet (I got mine from Aldi)
Garlic – As much as you like, as usual I used a few sprays of the garlic Frylight.
4 spring onions, thinly sliced, plus extra to garnish
1 green pepper and 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
Rice or noodles
2 onions chopped into small chunks
200g fresh pineapple, cut into bite-sized pieces
Spring onions to garnish
For the sauce
You will need:
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
6 tbsp light soy sauce
4 tbsp tomato purée
1 tbsp rice vinegar
6 tbsp unsweetened orange juice (2 syns)
100ml chicken stock
1-2 tsp sweetener
1 level tbsp cornflour (1.5 syns)
Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl until the cornflour is thoroughly blended. Set aside.
Cook the rice or noodles to the packet instructions.
Whist the rice/noodles are cooking, chop the pork into large chunks.
Spray a wok or deep frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Let it get really hot and then add the pork and stir-fry for 6-7 minutes until it is cooked through.
Add the garlic, onions and peppers and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Pour the sauce into the pan and stir continuously for 1 minute until it thickens. The chicken and vegetables should be well coated with the sauce. Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the pineapple, season with salt and garnish with spring onions.
This recipe makes at least 2 portions so the syn value per serving is 1.75 or 2 to be on the safe side.
