  • 2tbsp groundnut oil
  • 500g lean pork, cut into strips
  • 1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large or 2 small courgettes, trimmed and cut into chunks
  • 2tsp ground coriander
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes with herbs
  • 1tsp sugar
  • 2tbsp Kikkoman Less Salt Soy Sauce
  • 4tbsp smooth or crunchy peanut butter
To garnish
  • Chopped unsalted peanuts
  • Chopped fresh coriander


Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan and fry the pork in batches over a fairly high heat until browned, draining one batch from the pan before adding the next.

When all the pork has been browned, lower the heat, add the onion and cook for 10 minutes until softened, stirring occasionally. Add the courgette chunks, sprinkle in the ground coriander and fry for a further 5 minutes.

Pour in the chopped tomatoes and add the sugar and Kikkoman Less Salt soy sauce to the pan. Gradually stir in the peanut butter, return the pork to the pan, cover and simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes.

Serve sprinkled with chopped unsalted peanuts and fresh coriander. Accompany with warm flat breads or rice.

The dish can be made ahead and reheated but you may find the peanut butter has thickened the sauce too much. If this happens, adjust the consistency by thinning it with a little water or chicken stock.
