Step 1
Preheat oven to 200°C. Oil the pork, season and set aside.

Step 2
Combine ginger, five spice, honey, tomato passata, oyster sauce, 2 tbs vinegar and 2 tbs soy.

Step 3
Heat a frypan over medium-high heat. Add the pork and sear, turning regularly 3-4 minutes until golden on all sides. Add the ginger mixture, then cook 2-3 minutes until thickened.

Step 4
Remove and place pork on a paper-lined roasting tray. Drizzle over the pan sauce and roast for 15 minutes until cooked through and sticky. Rest, lightly covered in foil, for 5 minutes.

Step 5
Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a clean frypan over high heat. Add onion, celery and capsicum. Cook, tossing for 3-5 minutes, until charred and softened. Add remaining 1 tbs vinegar and 1 tbs soy. Toss to combine. Remove from heat.
