early donna v recent donna

We had this great Donna stir-fry for dinner the other night. The recipe's from Marie Claire flavours which was published in 2000. I've had this book since it came out and I reckon practically every recipe in it is really good.

Last night we had a Donna beef stir-fry that was in the H/S on Sunday and it was pretty ordinary. And a few things I've cooked from the mag lately haven't been that good either. So I'm thinking the early Donna recipes were much better than her recent ones.

Here's the yummy pork recipe :

Donna Hay's Pork ginger and lime stir-fry

1 T peanut oil
2 T shredded ginger
1 t cracked black pepper
6 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
2 cloves garlic, sliced
600g pork fillet, trimmed and sliced
3 T lime juice
2 T brown sugar
3 T sweet chilli sauce
bunch bok choy

Heat oil in a frying pan or wok. Add ginger, pepper, lime leaves and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add pork and stir-fry for 5 mins. or till well browned. Add lime juice, sugar and sweet chilli sauce and fry further 3 mins. or until sauce has thickened slightly. Toss through the bok choy and cook 1 min. Serve with steamed rice.
