Woman's Weekly recipe You canít beat a stir-fry for a midweek meal in minutes. Why not try our quick and simple sweet and sour pork - a healthy alternative to a takeaway.


  • 500g (1lb) pork fillet, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Malaysian curry paste, or Thai yellow curry paste
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 200g (7oz) chopped fresh pineapple (ready prepared)
  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 150g (5oz) green beans, topped and halved
  • 150g (5oz) baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Large handful of fresh basil leaves

This recipe would work just as well with chicken.


  1. Put the pork in a bowl with the curry paste and mix them together with your hand. Put a wok or pan on a high heat. Add 1 tbsp of the oil and, when hot, add the pork in 2 batches and stir-fry for 2-3 mins, until browned and just cooked through. Transfer the pork from the wok on to a hot plate.
  2. Stir-fry the pineapple for a minute or two to caramelise. Put it with the meat on the hot plate. Reheat the wok, add the rest of the oil and the onion and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the beans and 2 tbsp water and cook for a minute.
  3. Put the pork and pineapple back in the wok and add the tomato halves, fish sauce, sugar and lime juice. Warm through for half a minute and then sprinkle with basil leaves. Serve immediately with rice and lime wedges, if you like.
