  • Baby courgettes - 200g, top and tailed, sliced to 0.5cm thick on the angle

  • Low sodium light soy sauce - 1 tablespoon
  • Soft brown sugar - 1 teaspoon
  • Cornflour - 1 tablespoon
  • Shaosing rice wine - 1 tablespoon, or dry sherry

Steps

  • Prepare all the ingredients.
  • In a bowl, add all the ingredients for the Sichuan Spicy sauce. Set aside.
  • Heat a wok over high heat until smoking, then add the groundnut oil.
  • Add the pork slices and stir-fry for less than 1 minute, as it starts to turn brown, add the garlic, ginger, chilli and the baby courgettes and keep stirring for 1 minute until the pork is cooked. Don’t worry if the ingredients catch on the side of the wok, just keep stirring and scrape off some of the burnt flavours on the side of the wok (using a wooden spoon).
  • Once the courgettes have had less than 1 minute in the wok, add the sauce and keep stirring for 1 minute until the courgettes have softened and the sauce has thickened. Then give the dish a final stir then take it off the heat and serve immediately with steamed rice.
