I have done a post on this previously here. but this one. was done using a different cooking method and had a special ingredient in it.
The beauty of this dish is that, firstly, it is simple. Secondly, you can just add whatever seasonings you have on hand.
Dark Soy Sauce
Light Soy Sauce
Huao Diao Jiu (or Sake, or whatever cooking wine)
酱油膏 (Soya bean paste – entirely optional)
Fried Shallots and its oil (Highly recommended)
Pork Skin (optional)
Hard boiled eggs
In a pot, fry off some onions first to get them nice and caramelized. Then add in your pork mince and fry them. Keep frying them until all the liquid evaporates and you actually get some browning on the mince.
After this, it is really just a matter of pouring in all your seasonings and water and give it a good stir.
Pork Skin – with the pork skin, it helps to thicken the sauce at the end but usually requires a very long cooking time. So, i used my pressure cooker and it was so soft in just 15 minutes!
Hard boiled eggs – just boil them as you would and leave them in the soup to simmer together with the pork so that they get infused with all the flavours.
We really love this. Try it!
