Five spice pork marinade

Needed to make something quickly today (again due to exams), so I marinated some sliced pork overnight last night in olive oil, Chinese five spice (a mix of star anise, cinnamon, fennel, black pepper and cloves) and ginger.
For 2:

5 Pork Loin Steaks
1 Broccoli Head
2 Carrots
1 Clove of Ginger
Chinese Five Spice
Olive Oil

1. Mix 40 ml olive oil, some Chinese five spice and ginger in a measuring jug.
2. Chop pork into strips (as per picture) and marinate in above overnight.
3. Peel carrots. Chop carrots and broccoli into thin strips. Chop garlic into small pieces.
4. Place wok on heat, add pork to wok first, then other ingredients.
5. Stir-fry ingredients in wok until pork is browned. Add spinach to wok and wilt. Serve.
Volumise: Add more carrot and/or spinach.
Add carbs: Add peppers.
Add fat: Add coconut oil to stir-fry.
Add protein: Add some nuts to the stir fry just prior to serving, perhaps walnuts.
