Heat a large frying pan or wok.
Mix together the garlic, pepper, lime juice and zest and half of the coriander in a bowl.

Add the pork and stir-fry for 8-10 minutes until well browned, breaking up the mince with a wooden spoon as it cooks.
Add the peanuts, bamboo shoots, fish sauce or soy sauce, honey and chilli to the pork mixture and cook for another 5 minutes or until the liquid has almost completely evaporated, stirring occasionally.
Season to taste.
Place the shallots in a bowl with the orange segments and a heaped teaspoon each of the mint and remaining coriander.
