Pie Tee Filling

I love Pie Tee and the vegetable filling but I'm too lazy to make the pie tee shells.  Before CNY, ready fried Pie Tee shells are sold in some wet markets. Since it isn't CNY, I just prepared the vegetable filling and enjoyed it with fresh lettuce leaves.  It's quite similar to most of the stir fried jicama recipes.  The difference is probably the portion of the various ingredients used.  Crab meat can also be used to substitute prawns if you like.
[recipe adapted from an article written by Ivy Soon published in the Star newspaper]
200 gm prawns - shelled and coarsely chopped
150 gm lean or fatty pork - blanched and cut thin strips [optional]
5-6 mushrooms - soaked and sliced thinly
2 pieces firm beancurd -julienned and fried until firm
2-3 tbsp oil
3-4 garlic - finely chopped 
800 gm sengkuang [yambean] - cut thin shreds
1 carrot - cut thin shreds
2 leeks - sliced thinly
200 gm French beans - sliced thinly
salt, msg and pepper to taste
  1. Prepare ingredients as above.
  2. Heat oil in wok, saute mushrooms, add garlic.  Saute until aromatic, add in prawns.  Stir fry and add in meat.  Stir to mix.
  3. Add in the sengkuang and carrot.  Stir to mix and fry until vegetables are limp. Add in fried beancurd.
  4. Add seasoning to taste, then add in leeks and french beans.  Continue stir frying until vegetables are cooked.
  5. Dish out to serve with pie tee shells or fresh lettuce leaves.

I love kueh pie tee!! I know it's a lot of hard work making the shells and the filling - all the chopping of vegetables! Looks so yummy!

Kimmy, I also love the pie tee filling but I can;t be bothered to make the shells. I will also eat like you, with lettuce leaves :)

Hi Jasline, it's okay when you see the family finished off the whole of vegetables. My MIL asked to reserve some for her.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, yes the filling is good enough with garlic chilli sauce and fried shallots.

Hi Kimmy
We love pie tee. Used to make it at every family gathering, nowadays I am so lazy, but did thought about making it again lately, well, one of these days! Your filling has so many ingredients, very nice to make them into popiah!
Thank you for linking!

Hi Joyce, this was cooked at my MIL's place. I must add all the necessary ingredients to make her happy. In my kitchen, I prefer vegetarian style.

Pie is nice but of course not many would want to make it from scratch....I think this will be nice for popiah filling too!

Kimmy said...

Hi Jeannie, I agree. We cook this only on some special occasions like prayers and family gatherings.
