FOR THE PORK
  1. 400g pork tenderloin – Jacob’s Ladder Farms
  2. 2 tsp honey – Grain Grocer
  3. 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  4. A pinch of chilli flakes or freshly chopped chillies (more or less, to taste)
  5. 1 tsp soy sauce
FOR PEANUT DRESSING
  1. 6 tbsp peanuts – Grain Grocer
  2. 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  3. 1 fat garlic clove, finely minced
  4. 4 slices of fresh red chilli or a pinch of chilli flakes (more or less, to taste)
  5. 1 tbsp sugar or honey
  6. Juice of 2 limes
  7. 1 tsp soy sauce
FOR THE SALAD
  1. 200g rice noodles – Planta on Westow Hill
  2. 1 leek or 3 spring onions, thinly sliced – Brambletye
  3. 1 bag of mixed salad - Patchwork Farm or Wild Country
  4. 2-3 carrots, shaved into ribbons with a veg peeler – Perry Court
  5. A handful of fresh parsley, chives and/or coriander
Instructions
  1. Heat your oven to 200C/Gas 6. Set your pork on a cutting board and pierce it all over with a fork. This will tenderize it and help the marinade penetrate the meat.
  2. Mix the honey, ginger, chilli and soy sauce. Place the pork on a large square of foil or greaseproof paper. Slather the marinade all over. Wrap the foil/greaseproof paper around the pork to create a parcel. Roast for 20 mins. Remove from the oven. Let it rest in the parcel – it’ll continue to cook it through.
  3. Set a frying pan over high heat. Add your peanuts. Lightly crush them with the bottom of a jam jar. Lower heat. Toast until fragrant. Add the remaining dressing ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Get a pot of water on the boil. Plunge your rice noodles in. Cook according to pack instructions, normally 4 mins. Add your sliced leeks/spring onions to the pan just before draining. Drain. Rinse under cold water.
  5. Rinse your leaves and arrange on a serving platter or divide between plates. Pile your noodles on top. Scatter the carrot shavings over.
  6. Thinly slice your meat. Arrange it on top. Drizzle the peanut dressing over the top. Finish with fresh herbs.
