Simple Steam Minced Pork with Tong Choi Recipe

This is a simple recipe but my wife loves this dish very much. Tung choi is actually preserved cabbage. Tung choi (Tang Chai in Hokkien) can be a little pungent and salty, so I would normally soak it in water for a short while before I cooking it. Tung choi helps to bring out the pork flavour. The steamed minced pork with tung choi produces a little gravy that is nice and sweet. My kids like to put the gravy on their rice.

Ingredients
Pork, 300 gms, minced
Tung choi, 2 tablespoons, soak in water and drain
Light soya sauce, 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste

Mix the tung choi with the minced pork. Add in the soya sauce and salt to taste. Spread the mixture on a steaming tray. Steam the minced pork in high heat for 30 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve. PS Add a little pork fat to enhance the taste.

Steamed minced pork with salted eggs is another alternative. These are comfort food in most M'sian household.
