    Serves: 6 

    • 300g frozen peas
    • 120ml water
    • 4 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
    • 800g pork fillet, sliced or cubed
    • 6 spring onions, sliced

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Bring water and frozen peas to the boil in a small saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low; cook until peas are tender, about 3 minutes. Drain peas and set aside.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons sesame oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Cook and stir pieces of pork fillet in hot oil until lightly browned on all sides and cooked through, 7 or 8 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate.
    3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil in the wok. Cook most of the spring onions (reserving a few for serving) and diced carrots in hot oil until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower; cook and stir until cauliflower is tender but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in minced garlic.
    4. Add cooked pork and soy sauce into cauliflower mixture and stir-fry until mixture is hot and slightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
    5. Move pork-cauliflower mixture to one side of the wok; pour beaten eggs onto empty side. Stir well eggs until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix the pork-cauliflower mixture with the lightly scrambled egg, breaking up any large chunks. Serve hot with additional spring onion.


    *Grate cauliflower using the largest side of a grater; the end product resembles grains of rice.
