Minced pork fried rice


Cooked this for Saturday's dinner... these days I try as much as possible to cook dishes that Alicia will eat as well so that I don't need to make extra effort to cook something else for her.

This is a simple dish that's sooo yummy! Try it!


Minced pork fried rice


Ingredients:
  • 1.5 cup of rice grains (the cup I used to measure the rice came together with the rice cooker, hence it's not your usual cup)
  • about 3 handfuls of minced pork (about $3)
  • 2 handfuls dried Japanese whitebait
  • 6 cloves shallots (sliced thinly)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 handfuls frozen mixed vegetables
  • scallions (for garnishing - optional)
  • Oil
  • Oyster sauce

Marinate minced pork with:
  • hua diao jiu
  • 2-3 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • sesame oil
  • ground white pepper

Method:
  1. Cook rice as per usual. You may prefer to use overnight rice.
  2. Rinse the Japanese whitebait and leave to dry on kitchen towel.
  3. Heat some oil in a wok (be more generous than usual with the oil as we will need to pour this oil over the rice eventually).
  4. Add whitebait to the wok and fry till golden brown. Strain and set aside.
  5. Add the garlic and fry till light brown. Strain and set aside.
  6. Add the shallots and fry till golden brown. Strain and set aside.
  7. Dish out the extremely fragrant oil and set aside for later use, leaving a little behind to fry the minced pork.
  8. Add the minced pork and fry quickly to prevent lumps.
  9. When the pork is almost cooked, add the mixed veggies.
  10. Add the cooked rice and mix well.
  11. Add oyster sauce to taste.
  12. Dish and top with the whitebait, garlic and shallots (and scallions).
  13. Drizzle the fragrant oil made earlier over the rice.
  14. Serve.

For toddler's consumption:
  • If particular about seasoning, remove toddler's portion before adding the oyster sauce.
  • Drizzle the fragrant oil over the rice and serve the crispy whitebait separately (skip the garlic and shallots if your toddler isn't fond of them.
