Chinese style belly pork with grapefruit salad HERO

Toss the pork with the 5 spice powder and oil until coated. Heat a pan over a medium high heat and cook the pork for 5-6 minutes on each side. Turn down the heat a little and stir in the garlic, ginger, soy, balsamic and brown sugar. Mix together well, spooning over the pork to coat and cook for a minute or two.

While the meat cooks, toss together the salad ingredients and prepare the rice, following pack instructions. Slice the pork and divide between 4 plates, top with a little sauce and a handful of the salad. Serve with the rice.
