Home Style Braised Potatoes with Minced Meat and Salted Soya Beans

Another homely meat dish that goes well with rice or steaming hot porridge. This is the third tasty dish using preserved soya bean paste [taucheow], like the dishes which I cooked earlier using fish and tofu puffs [recipe here] and pork belly and black fungus [see recipe here].  All these 3 dishes are tasty and delicious with rice or porridge.
Verdict - tasty and delicious.  Aromatic with ginger and the salted soya bean paste tasted sweet.
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 69 [slightly modified]
[serves 3-4]
2-3 tbsp cooking oil
100 gm minced meat
2-3 potatoes [about 250 gm] - peeled and cut into slices or chunks 
1 tbsp chopped garlic and shallots
1 tsp chopped ginger [I used more as I like ginger with taucheow]
1 tbsp preserved soya bean paste [I used Knife brand]
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp dark soy sauce [optional]
500 ml water
  1. Heat up oil, pan fry potatoes for a short while. Dish up or push aside. 
  2. Add in chopped garlic, shallots and ginger. Fry until fragrant. Add in the minced meat. Stir fry until aromatic and meat turns pale. 
  3. Add in seasoning and combine meat with potatoes. Stir fry to mix well. 
  4. Add in the water. Bring to boil then lower heat to simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and gravy has thickened.
  5. Add some chopped spring onions and red chilli. Dish up to serve with rice or porridge.

Hi Kimmy! This is a very comforting home cooked dish. Meat and potatoes is always a favourite in my home. I also like the combination of ginger and taucheow. They go very well together.

Hi Phong Hong, allowed to rest before serving, it is even more tasty with rice or porridge. Very homely dish.

Hi Karen, very sorry this dish is a catalyst. It is delicious with rice and I enjoyed picking at the preserved soy beans. Very tasty and not salty at all.

Hi Kimmy,
This is an all-time favourite! I would always add extra potatoes, as we are potato lovers! Sometimes I would cook it with luncheon meat! Delicious!
Thanks for linking with CYB!

Hi Aunty Young, this dish looks good with good quality taucheong. Colour is bright and appetising.

Hi Joyce, great idea with luncheon meat but has to omit the salt cos' luncheon meat can be salty.
