I posted Chicken Meat Floss Recipe in 2008. This time I made some bak hu (meat floss) with lean pork meat. The process of frying the meat until dry might seem very tedious but the end result is really great. Everyone in the family gets to enjoy preservatives free and tasty home made meat floss (yuk shi, bak hu). Since I didn't use any preservatives, I kept the Bak Hu in the fridge to prevent them from turning moldy.
My kids love to eat meat floss with porridge or plain bread.
Here is my Chinese style Meat Floss recipe,
Lean Pork, 1 kilogram, cut into 1" cube
Light soya sauce, 7 table spoons
Dark soya sauce, 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste (around 4 to 5 tablespoons)
Water, enough to cover the pork meat
Put all the ingredients in a pot and boil in low heat until all the pork meat turned tender. Separate the meat into thin strands using your hands. Put all the meat into a non stick pan and fry until all the gravy dries up. Keep frying the Bak Hu at low heat until they become dry. You can fry them longer if you want the Bak Hu (meat floss) to be crispy. Let the bak hu cool down before storing it in air tight container. Keep the bak hu in the fridge.
