  3. Pour the marinade, the rest of the orange juice and 150ml( pint) hot water (or stock) into the wok. Bring to the boil, add the broccoli and the stalks of pak choi and cook for 1 min. Then stir in the soaked noodles, the pak choi leaves and spring onions. Cook for another minute or until vegetables are just tender, then put the venison back in and heat through.
