I had a request on Twitter for more healthy meals which aren’t just chicken – so when I found a gorgeous looking fillet of pork reduced in Tesco, it just begged to be bought!

I didn’t want just boring pork roast, so PT Steve and I decided to mix things up with some Chinese flavouring and treat ourselves to a small amount of rice noodles as we’ve dropped the carbs for so long!


This was really delicious and the meat was incredible – such a tender cut and really lean so there was no wastage at all and I didn’t have to trim any of the fat off.

Ideally, I would have left this to marinade overnight but as it was on it’s sell by date and I was hungry, into the oven it went!

If you’re being really strict, pile on the stir fry veg and ditch the rice noodles – we only had a small amount each, around 75g each.

This would be a great meal to share with friends….though we pigged the whole thing between two of us!

Chinese style roast pork

photo(3)1 fillet of pork (we used Tesco Finest)

2 tbsp sesame seeds

2 tbsp gluten free soy sauce (try Sanchi’s organice Tamari)

1 dessert spoon of honey

1 tsp chilli flakes

3 cloves garlic (crushed)

Drizzle of toasted sesame oil

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas 5.
  2. Drizzle the sesame oil in a baking tin to stop the pork sticking
  3. Mix the sesame seeds, chilli flakes, soy sauce, honey and crushed garlic into a bowl to form a marinade
  4. Place the pork fillet into the tray and pour the marinade over it
  5. Rub the marinade into the pork, making sure it is completely covered.
  6. Leave to stand for a while, or ideally leave in the fridge overnight to really soak up the marinade.
  7. Roast for 30 minutes
  8. Leave to rest for 5-10 minutes, slice and serve.

For the rice noodles….

100g rice noodles per person

1 tbsp soy sauce

Pack of mixed stir fry veg

tsp coconut oil

  1. Add the coconut oil and soy sauce to a wok and heat
  2. Stir fry the veg for 2-3 minutes on a high heat
  3. Add the rice noodles, stir fry for 2 minutes more and then serve under the pork

Simple, delicious and perfect for entertaining – this is a real winner!
