Pork Pad Thai


Preparation Time: 10 Mins

Cooking Time: 10 Mins

Serves 2 (as a main)


80g dried rice stick noodles

1 tsp olive oil

100g broccoli, cut into small pieces

½ red capsicum, cut into short, thin strips

200g Woolworths Heart Smart Australian Pork Mince

1 clove garlic, crushed

50g egg, lightly whisked

Freshly squeezed juice of 1 large lime

3 tsp sweet chilli sauce or gluten-free sweet chilli sauce

3 tsp salt-reduced soy sauce or gluten-free soy sauce

½ cup coriander leaves

1 cup bean shoots

1 Tbsp unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped



1 Cook noodles in a medium saucepan of boiling water over a high heat for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Drain well and rinse under cold water, set aside.


2 Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large wok over a high heat. Add broccoli, capsicum, pork and garlic. Stir-fry for 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp and mince is cooked. Add noodles and egg. Cook, tossing until mixture is well combined and egg is just set.


3 Add lime juice, chilli sauce and soy sauce to wok. Toss to combine. Add coriander and bean shoots and toss to combine. Sprinkle with peanuts and serve.


Cook’s Tip: If you’re not a fan or pork, simply replace it with 300tg green prawns, peeled, deveined and finely chopped. The lime juice can be substituted with lemon juice.
