Put the meat in a shallow dish. Mix together the soy sauce, sherry, five-spice seasoning and 2 tablespoons of water and brush over the pork, coating it well. Cover and leave to marinate for 1 hour.
Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying-pan. Add the pepper, celery and carrots and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms, sugar-snap peas or broccoli and spring onions and stir-fry for a further 2 minutes.
Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon and put to one side. Add the pork to the hot saucepan and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Pour on any remaining marinade and cook for a further minute.
