This looks amazing. However, do I really need the peanut butter powder or any other peanut butter. I don’t like nuts.

    HollyWednesday 14th July 2021

    Hey Denise, you could omit the peanut butter powder if you aren’t a fan! Hope that helps!

I can’t find any peanut butter powder in my supermarket, can I use peanut butter instead? If so would crunch or smooth be better?

Reply

    HollyWednesday 21st April 2021

    Hey James, yes you could use smooth peanut butter and alter the calories accordingly, hope that helps!

Do I cook in the oven with a lid on?

    Hi Zoe, no need to cover with a lid, hope that helps!

Do you cover the dish in the oven?

    Hi Lisa, there’s no need to cover this with a lid, hope that helps!

Hayley KirkbyTuesday 6th April 2021

Hi. At step 4 you say mix all the other ingredients except for the sesame seeds. Then at step five you say scatter over the broccoli. Should the broccoli be included in step 4?

Reply

    HollyTuesday 6th April 2021

    Hey Hayley, I’ve amended the method in this recipe to make it a little clearer, hope that helps!
    Step 4 While the potatoes are browning, add the rest of the ingredients to a bowl, reserving the broccoli and sesame seeds and mix well.
    Step 5 Once the potatoes have been browned, turn the heat off and add the pork and sauce in between the potatoes. Scatter over the broccoli and place into the oven for 30-35 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through.

I have just made the bang bang pork which was very nice but the broccoli looked and tasted a bit wilted. Was it because I shouldn’t have put the lid on the casserole pot when it went in the oven?

Reply

    HollyWednesday 7th April 2021

    Hey Jenny, there’s no need to cover this with a lid so that may have been the reason the broccoli is a little soggy, hope that helps!

LisaSunday 4th April 2021

Would this work with chicken instead of pork?

Reply

    HollyWednesday 7th April 2021

    Hey Lisa, you could swap the pork for chicken but it may cook a lot faster so test a piece to check it is cooked through and no pinkness remains, hope that helps!

    Reply

Lisa BakerThursday 1st April 2021

Does it matter what cut of pork is used? What do you suggest as pork can often be dry?

Reply

    HollyWednesday 21st April 2021

    Hey Lisa, if you go to your local supermarket you should fine some ready diced pork this is usually diced pork loin or topside which is perfect for this recipe, hope that helps!

Your bang bang pork looks delicious
However I am allergic to peanuts. Is it possible to replace the peanut butter paste with something else?

Reply

    HollyWednesday 31st March 2021

    Hi Jane, I’ve just had a look online and there is a brand called Wowbutter which is peanut butter made from soybeans so nut free, so you could try some of that or just omit the 1 tsp all together and the flavours will still be great, hope that helps!
