This is our family recipe since my Grandma's time. A very simple pork recipe with only 2 main ingredients - shredded ginger and minced meat [even better if you minced your own]. A dish suitable for confinement ladies and all who loves the aroma of sesame oil and ginger. In Penang, with the Ghee Hiang Sesame Oil, this dish is even more flavourful together with good quality soy sauce.Ingredients
300 gm minced meat [with some fats]
4-5 tbsp of finely shredded ginger
4-5 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce
3/4 cup water
1 tsp sugar to taste
- Heat sesame oil in wok to saute ginger until aromatic and slightly crispy. Remove a little, set aside as garnishing.
- Add in light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar and water. Bring it to a boil. Taste to adjust seasoning.
- Form minced meat into a tablespoon size meatballs and drop them into boiling sauce. Leave to cook for awhile before stirring [to avoid meatballs from breaking apart].
- Dish out cooked meatballs and gravy onto a bowl. Garnish with fried ginger. Serves well with rice or porridge.
