  • 2 tbsp Essential Vegetable Oil
  • 500g pack Essential 8% Fat British Pork Mince
  • 300g pack Singapore rice noodles
  • 1 red grapefruit, peeled and chopped
  • 1 pack Essential Little Gem Lettuce, ½ shredded, ½ leaves separated
  • 1 Essential Cucumber, sliced into half-moons

For the dressing

  • 1 Essential Lime, scrubbed, zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp Essential Clear Honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 clove/s garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes, plus extra to serve, if liked


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan, then add the pork and season. Fry for 8-10 minutes, breaking up the mince as you go, until brown and crisp. Set aside. Microwave the noodles according to pack instructions and set aside.

  2. Mix all the dressing ingredients together. In a large bowl, combine the grapefruit, lettuce, cucumber, cooked mince and noodles. Tip in the dressing and toss to coat. Serve with extra chilli flakes, if liked.

Cook’s tip

This is a great lunch box recipe, pack it up with the lettuce kept separate until you’re ready to tuck in. Feel free to mix up the vegetables. Shredded carrot, fennel or radish would be delicious.
