Homey, Chinese style dishes are simple and at times could be surprisingly good.   The use of some basic ingredients with a main ingredient can make each dish so unique,  apart from being tasty and delicious.
This dish is an example of what I am trying to say. 
The basic ingredients are some meat, ginger, chilli and preserved soy bean paste [taucheong].  These basic ingredients can be used to fry a variety of vegetables of your choice [from leafy greens to beans,  quash and gourd].

Recipe inspired by Chinese TV Cook Show with modifications
[serves 3]
2 stalks of celery – peeled and cut thin slices
½ red chilli – seeded and shredded
1 cm piece ginger – shredded
2 tbsp preserved soy bean paste [taucheong]
50 gm pork belly – shredded [you can use pork tenderloin]
½ tbsp oil
1 tbsp cooking wine
Dash of msg and pepper to taste

  1. Heat up a non-stick wok, fry shredded meat pork with oil until fragrant and oil oozes out [you may need more oil if using pork tenderloin].  Push aside and add in ginger and red chilli, sauté until aromatic.
  2. Add in taucheong and seasoning.  Stir to mix all ingredients, then add in some water.
  3. Bring to boil for several minutes, add in the vegetables.  Give it a good toss and stir well until vegetables are cooked. 
  4. Dish up to serve immediately.

Kimmy, that's a delicious vegetable dish. So far, I have only cooked celery prawns and also plain with salt and garlic. Must try this one too!

Hi Phong Hong, adding taucheong and meat makes this dish a lot tastier. Cook a bigger portion, I can enjoy just this with porridge or rice for a simple meal.
