Pork strips with cucumber salad (Week 15 Day 4)

Serves 4 : Easy : Quick
±400gm lean pork strips (or fillet cut into strips)
2 Tblsp soy sauce
I heaped tsp grated ginger

12 radishes, sliced
½ long cucumber, sliced
2-3 stalks celery, sliced
2 Tblsp chopped parsley
½ red onion, chopped
1 Tblsp olive oil
1 Tblsp lemon juice
1 Tblsp Dijon mustard

240gm rice

Mix the pork strips with the soy sauce and ginger.
Grind over some Chinese 5 spice and black pepper.
Allow to stand while you:

Put the rice on to cook in lightly salted boiling water.
Once tender, drain and keep warm.

Make the salad by combining the cucumber, celery and radish slices.
For the dressing, mix the mustard, lemon juice, oil and parsley together.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.

Spray a large pan with non-stick spray, and heat.
Tip the pork and marinade juices into the pan.
Cook for about 5 minutes.

Serve the pork over the rice and the salad on the side.

This salad keeps well in the fridge. Add some garlic, if you like. And the marinade on the pork strips is so simple, but so yummy.
