Stir Fried Pork with Ginger and Honey

Stir fry’s are quick and easy recipes to follow and this recipe for Stir Fried Pork with Ginger and Honey is particularly tasty. I often eat this mid-week.  Chinese food can be high in salt but this recipe isn’t as there is no extra salt or flavour enhancers used.  If you would like to lower the potassium content of the dish then par-boil the peppers and mange tout before adding them to the stir fry.
