1Cajun sauce is a one-pot wonder and is very simple to make. Put all of the ingredients into a pot and allow to boil for eight to 10 minutes.
2Meanwhile, dice the pork into small pieces and sprinkle the oil and Cajun spice over the top. Mix together and, if time allows, you can leave them to marinate for an hour or so.
3Heat a wok or frying pan and cook the pork until browned all over. Next, add the peppers, carrot, celery, onion and wild mushrooms (which have been cut into strips) and cook gently with the diced ginger.
4When the pork is almost fully cooked, pour in the Cajun sauce and bring this mixture to the boil.
5Add the diced pineapple and chopped spring onions just before serving.
