Pork, ginger and spring onion stir-fry

Stir-fries are perfect for those days when you want a tasty and filling meal - and you want it fast! The succulent pork contrasts beautifully with the freshness of the vegetables – try not to overcook them so they retain some of their crunch. This dish is a much healthier alternative to a take away, and every bit as tasty. In fact, you could prepare and cook this in less time than it would take to get one delivered.
