    A little experiment turned out quite tasty - altho BF stated it was nice but tasted a little like medicine! :D- see what you think.

    Four pork fillets - cubed
    10 tbps soy sauce
    2 cloves of garlic finely chopped or grated
    2 tbps runny honey (5 syns)
    2/3 tsps chinese 5 spice
    1/2 tsps mustard powder.

    Marinade the pork in all the ingredients for as long as you can.

    Either use a slow cooker for a few hours, which I did or put the lot in a pot on your hob under a low heat for an hour or so, this doesn't need to be cooked for this long, I just really like braised meats. Then when cooked transfer into a frying pan and whack up the heat for 10 mins until the sauce goes thick and sticky (a little like the diet coke chicken) - serve with rice. A really tasty dish, which feels like you are having a real Chinese - unless you are my BF and think its something you would only eat when you are ill! Perhaps I overdid the Chinese 5 Spice....:eek:

    It was nice thanks, yes I have been away to "fall off the wagon-ville" thats it really, I had a little upset over a week ago, someone close died unfortunately and had the mind set of "life's too short" and so ate like an animal.... i have now seen the light and realise that by eating more I am potentially cutting my own life short, so gave myself a good talking to and have been back on it since Monday, back to basics, weighing everything etc. Its good to be back!

    Thanks a lot Louisedan. I think even just getting back in the kitchen and getting excited about new recipes really helps. This forum helps so much as well.
