Pork and plum stir-fry

Philippa's not keen on pork so I have to find ways to make it taste particularly nice. And knowing that she likes sweet things, I tried pork with plums - in various combinations... here's the one she particularly liked:

2 pork steaks
1 handful of baby sweetcorn
1/2 red pepper
2 plums, not too soft
1 tbsp sherry

Slice the pork into strips about 1/2 a centimetre thick. Do the same for pepper and the plums. Do all this beforehand, since the cooking happens fast.

Put a wok on a high heat with a dab of oil. When very hot, put the pork in and stir it around quickly until it loses its raw colour.

Push the pork to the side of the pan, add a dab more oil, and place the sliced plums in the pan. Don't stir them around - let them caramelise slightly, then turn them over and do the same on the other side.

Then stir everything around, adding the pepper and then the sweetcorn. Stir for around 1 minute. Then add the sherry and stir again, while the sherry bubbles down slightly.

Serve with noodles.

Hello, I tried your recipe using Autumn Damsons. Was very nice. Also, tried it with a tad of sliced sweet pickled salad ginger. See what you think. Cheers, Leon B. Tasmania. Australia.
