Pork and ginger stir-fry

Ingredients

Serves = 6

  • 250g rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1 head broccoli - cut into florets and slice the stalks
  • 500g boneless pork -steaks/ chops (e.g. sirloin, medallions, fillet), sliced thinly
  • 1 large brown onion
  • 1 tablespoon crushed ginger
  • 3 tablespoons hoi-sin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-salt soy sauce
  • 1 large bunch Asian greens (buk choy, pak choy) chopped roughly.

It’s this easy

  • Put the noodles and broccoli into a large bowl and pour over enough boiling water to just cover them. Allow to sit for 5 minutes while you cook the stir-fry.
  • Heat a wok or large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add half of the oil followed by half of the pork. Cook the pork so that it is brown on both sides and cooked through. Put on a plate and then cook the rest of the pork.
  • Drain the water off the noodles and broccoli and set aside with the pork. Add the rest of the oil to the frying pan or wok.
  • Add the brown onion and ginger and stir fry for about 2 minutes until it is onion is clear and soft. Add small amount of water if it starts to look dry. Add in the Asian greens and cooked until wilted.
  • Add the pork, noodles hoi-sin and soy sauce and mix it well.
  • Serve up in a bowl and enjoy!

Tweaks

  • Are fresh vegetables difficult for you to access or store? You can try making this with frozen mixed vegetables instead. Just defrost the vegetables and then add them to the stir-fry with the ginger.
  • A hand-held grater is a great way to grate fresh ginger. Just wash the ginger well, no need to peel it and then grate. To save time you can use pre-grated ginger from a jar but the flavour will not be quite as good as with fresh ginger.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
