Mix the pork medallions with the soy sauce and five-spice; leave to marinate for 5 mins. Heat a large non-stick pan, then fry the pork for 2-3 mins on each side until cooked through.

Add the rice to the pan with the peas and stir-fry for 3-5 mins until piping hot, then gently stir through the omelette with the spring onions and seasoning and cook for 1 min.
