Steam Minced Pork With Preserved Vegetables


This dish brings back childhood memories. I don't know about you but my grandma and mom used to steam minced  pork with preserved vegetables known as ' tung choy' in cantonese  for our lunch and dinner. My siblings and I practically grew up having this dish most of the time for our lunch and dinner.  Easy to digest and it is comfort food.  And lately, I cook this very often  for hubby and myself as this dish is easy to whip up and very appetising and whenever we feel like eating something steamed and not fried. This dish goes well with rice and porridge. Real comfort food for us :) 

 I like to steam them in rice bowls instead of in a deep dish
as I feel it is easier to keep the leftover if we cannot finish
them in one meal.  I will just cling wrap the remaining unfinished
ones for the next meal. Neater this way and more presentable :)

 Hubby loves to have more gravy thus you can see

  1. Yum yum! This is one dish that is regularly featured in my mum's kitchen, and I love it. Sometimes she uses "tai tau choy" or "mui choy" instead of "toong choy".
