Pork Skewers with Stir Fried Vegetables


  1. If using bamboo skewers they will require pre-soaking.
  2. Combine the diced pork with the Chinese five-spice and 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and set aside for half an hour
  3. Thread the pork evenly onto 8 skewers. Preheat a grill plate to high and spray the pork with oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until pork is cooked to your liking.
  4. Meanwhile heat a wok or heavy based frying pan over medium-high heat and lightly spray with oil. Add the onion, capsicum and mushrooms and stir fry until starting to colour. Add the garlic, bok choy, stock and remaining soy sauce. Stir fry until just wilted then add the snow peas.
  5. Remove from heat and serve with the pork skewers and fresh coriander leaves. You may like to serve this dish with a side of Cauliflower Rice.
