Sweet and Sour Rhubarb Pork with Noodles

I have not actually cooked many of Jamie's recipes, not sure why.
We do have one of his books, Jamie at Home, and after including it in a pile of books to flatten something I decided to have a peruse. 
Well this Jamie Oliver recipe sounded fantastic and so I gave it a go!

And it was so simple. 
The marinade of rhubarb, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, chilli and five spice is pureed.

The marinade is then put in a roasting pan with some chunks of pork belly (rind removed), covered with foil and baked for an hour and a half.

The pork is finished off in a hot pan until its nice and caramelised. 
I reduced the majority of the sauce down separately.

Serve your cooked egg noodles with the thick sauce and top with the tender tasty pork.
Serve with coriander, chilli and spring onions.

It was so delicious, the sour sauce clung perfectly to the noodles, it reminded me of satay.
The pork was tender and delicious. I love that the recipe used rhubarb.


  1. I've been wanting to try a savoury recipe with rhubarb but haven't found any interesting ones. This one sounds lovely.
