Fried Ginger Minced Meat

This fried minced meat dish uses young ginger.  It has the fragrance of ginger yet not too 'hot' in taste.  Moreover with the saltiness of the preserved radish [chai por], this minced meat tasted rather unique, very  suitable to serve with plain porridge and rice.
Ingredients are simple and method is easy, just stir fry until aromatic and meat is cooked.  
[recipe adapted from Yum Yum magazine]
300 gm minced meat [lean or with some fats is alright]
200 young ginger - finely chopped
100 gm preserved radish [chai por] - chopped
4 tbsp oil
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt to taste [depends on how salty is the chai por used]
1 tsp sugar
  1. Heat up oil in pan [I used a claypot], saute chopped ginger until aromatic and lightly browned.
  2. Add in preserved radish, stir fry to mix and aromatic.
  3. Add in the minced meat and seasoning.  Stir fry until minced meat is cooked and almost dry.
  4. Taste to adjust seasoning.  Dish up to serve with plain porridge or white rice or use as toppings for steamed tofu.

Hi Kimmy, this is so good. However, my version is to add eggs into it to make omelette. And great to go with plain porridge. I can have 3 bowls of porridge!

Kimmy, this is nice and simple. Would be good with plain rice or noodles too.

Hi Kimmy! Very homely and satisfying dish to go with porridge/rice! ... and even noodles too! I like it!

I love ginger, especially the young ones. :) This is such a great dish and I know I can eat an extra bowl of rice when this is on the dinner table! :P

Hi Kimmy,

Like your homely cooking. This looks very comforting to eat with a bowl of warm steamed rice :D


Kimmy said...

Hi Ivy, yes good idea to add eggs if you wish to make a bigger portion.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, i always prefer preparing simple yet flavourful dishes.

Kimmy said...

Hi Alvin, you are right, it should be good with noodles, too. I have eaten this with steaming hot porridge and plain white rice.

Kimmy said...

Hello Amy, thanks for visiting my humble blog. This can be served anytime so long as the porridge/rice is warm or hot.

Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, thanks for your encouraging comment. Great motivation to cook and try as many dishes as possible.
