Macao Style Vegetarian Mock Meat

Have bookmarked to cook Macao Style Pork Chops long time ago but never got down to do it.  Looking through this recipe, I realised that I could substitute the pork chops with vegetarian mock meats.
Was really satisfied with the result.  The mock meat slices were awesome, tasty and yummy.  I wouldn't mind preparing it again for vegans to enjoy.
Ingredients
original recipe from Yum Yum Magazine No. 48 with modifications
[serves 6]
500 gm wet gluten balls [mee keen] - sliced [can you vegetarian mock pig intestines]
some  toasted sesame seeds
some oil for pan frying
Marinade
3 tbsp light soy sauce
3 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp cooking wine
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp each of 5 spice powder and pepper
  1. Slice mock meats about 1/2 cm thickness.
  2. Marinate with marinade for several hours or overnight in the fridge.
  3. Heat oil in non-stick pan, pan fry meat pieces without the marinade until the edges are brown and slightly crispy.  Flip over to fry the other side.
  4. Dish out on serving platter.
  5. Add some water to marinade.  Pour into pan to boil until it is thickened. Add some  toasted sesame seeds [optional if you prefer some gravy].
  6. Pour over fried mock meat, sprinkle some sesame seeds over meat.

Hi Kimmy, wow, looks like real meat and very tempting too, esp the gravy :)

Looks great! What sauce can be used to replace worcestershire sauce? I hardly keep this sauce at home. By the way do you have vegetarian sambal belacan recipe?

Kimmy said...

Hi Ivy, looks and tasted good. The mock meat is soft and very tasty. Without the gravy, it is crispy and is good with chilli sauce or mayo and cucumber.

Kimmy said...

Hi Vivian,you can substitute with Maggi seasoning sauce. Yes, do look up these 2 posts http://kimmy-cookingpleasure.blogspot.com/2012/10/vegetarian-sambal.html and http://kimmy-cookingpleasure.blogspot.com/2011/09/vegetarian-galangal-chilli-sauce.html

What is Maggi seasoning sauce? Come in bottle or cubes? Is that vegetarian sauce? Thanks for your sambal recipes. By the way where can I get the mushroom granules? Which one you prefer?

Hi Kimmy,
I have never tried cooking with vegetarian ingredients like mock meat before. And it has been ages since I last eaten any vegetarian meal!
Thanks for linking!

Your mock meat looks as good as real meat... very delicious indeed.

Kimmy, this dish look very appetizing even though it is made with mock meat. I bet if using meat, it would be super yummy too!

Kimmy said...

Hi Vivian, its like soy sauce, comes in a small bottle with tall, slender neck. Some people use it as dipping sauce. Mushrooms granules is available at stalls selling vegetarian food ingredients. All are okay with me, basically they are made from mushrooms.

Hi Joyce, I think you are still young, hehehe! As we age and more health conscious, going green is good too.

Kimmy said...

Hi Mich, looks real but not that chewy as real meat. Tasty, yes.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, the marinade is actually for real meat and serve with baked buns. Yummylicious, I have yet to post the recipe which is with pork fillet.
