Gyeran Mari With Kimchi

Yesterday dinner was light and easy for me. I made Korean egg roll known as Gyeran Mari with my homemade Kimchi to go with Teochew porridge.  I had tummy upset the past few days and having porridge with Gyeran Mari is real comfort food. It is easy to prepare and tasted so good with the hot teochew porridge.

I used the same recipe as the Gyeran Mari which I made some months back and here is the link to the recipe. Instead of adding toasted seaweed to the egg roll , I added kimchi.

Stuffed Veggies With Meat/Fish Paste

Sometimes when I harvested just a few strings of longbeans and a small bittergourd  from the garden, not enough to cook a dish on its own, I will just stuff them with meat paste. Braise the stuffed veggies with a savoury sauce of fermented bean paste and preserved plum and tada.... I have a delicious savoury dish for dinner. The most important element in this dish is the meat paste. A combination of minced meat with fish paste with added chopped onions and white pepper will make a delicious fillings for the homegrown veggies. All the work involved in preparing this dish is worth it when you whip up a dish that is almost as good as the Hakka Yong Taufu.

first give the long beans a quick blanch (just to lightly
soften it so that it will not break when
you coil it into a loop and tuck in the end

stuff the longbeans , bittergourd slices and red chillies
with the seasoned filling of meat/fish paste

once the veggies are stuffed, prepare the
non stick pan for pan frying the stuffed veggies

add a few tbsp of veg oil and pan fry the veggies till 
lightly brown and the meat fillings are cooked thru

prepare the fermented bean paste and plum sauce
for light braising of the cooked stuffed veggies
this is so worth the effort of preparing this dish

Stuffed Veggies With Meat/Fish Paste


8 strings of longbeans - blanch and coil into a small loop
1 bittergourd - cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
4 red chillies - slit and deseed

1 tbsp of chopped garlic
1 tbsp of fermented bean paste ( tauchu)
1 piece of preserved plum - mashed
1/2 tsp of preserved black bean

Stuff all the veggies with the above meat filling paste. Add a few tbsp of cooking on a non stick pan and when oil is hot, gently place piece by piece of the stuffed veggies onto the pan and pan fried till the filling is golden brown . Dish up all the cooked stuffed veggies and keep aside
