Thai Spiced Pork Stir Fry - Gourmet Garden's Blog Off Cook Off

Gourmet Garden are the the producer of fresh herbs and spices easy for weekday cooking.  Their passion is organically-grown herbs and spices packaged in a convenient squeezable tube that lasts for up to 3 months in your fridge.  They are currently running a Blog Off Cook Off competition where one lucky blogger can win a trip to Australia and a whopping £3000!
Using some of their great range of fresh herbs and spices, I have to develop and make a recipe to be judged by the great Rosemary Shrager.

So here we go - here's one of my entries to the fantastic Gourmet Garden's Blog Off Cook Off competition.

Thai Spiced Pork Stir Fry - serves 2

2 lean pork fillets, finely sliced
1 tsp Gourmet Garden garlic
1 tbsp Gourmet Garden Thai Spices
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
Fresh egg noodles
Thinly sliced spring onions to garnish, if required
  1. Place the sliced pork into a large bowl; add the garlic, Thai spices, oyster sauce and brown sugar.  Cover and marinate in the fridge overnight, if possible, or for at least 1 hour.
  2. Remove the marinated pork from the fridge.  Heat the olive oil in a wok or frying pan and add the pork and marinade juices.  Stir fry over a medium high heat for 4-5 minutes until the pork is cooked through and piping hot.
  3. Heat the fresh egg noodles.
  4. Serve the pork over a bed of noodles.  Garnish with the sliced spring onions, to taste.
