One of the best ways to change up your menus and keep staff inspired is to add new cooking methods and international flavours into the mix. Try this Chinese Pork Mince Stir Fry for an easy lunch or dinner.

2 garlic cloves crushed
1 chilli deseeded fresh thinly sliced whole
1 tbs ginger finely chopped fresh
2 tsp sesame oil
500g pork mince
3 spring onions sliced
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs oyster sauce
250g fresh green beans cut lengthways
30g unsalted roasted peanuts chopped
3 tbs fresh basil
2 tbs water

Combine chilli, ginger and garlic in a bowl. Cut green beans into 5cm lengths.
Heat a non-stick wok or pan over high heat and add oil. Once oil is hot, add garlic, ginger, chilli and spring onions and stir.
Cook for a minute or so, then add the pork mince. Once pork is cooked, add green beans and stir fry.
While beans are still crisp, add sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and 2 tablespoons of water.
Allow to cook for a further 2 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced a little.
Finally, add peanuts and fresh basil, and serve immediately with jasmine rice.
