Homecook: Spicy Pork with salted vegetable

If there is 1 dish that I enjoy eating it over and over again, and can cook 1 big pot to be eated for meals, then it’s definitely this – Spicy Pork with salted vegetable.

It’s a simple dish to cook and prepare, with the main ingredients as below:

i) 3 layer pork sliced to small pieces

ii) Roasted Pork sliced to small pieces

iii) Beancurd sliced to small cube

iv )Salted Vegetable cut to small pieces

Things to take note:

a) There are 2 types of salted vegetables in the market. Choose the type as shown in the picture below.

b) You need to wash the salted vegetables thoroughly, as it’s quite dirty when bought. You will need to soak the salted vegetables into water for at least 20 minutes to ensure it won’t be too salty.

c)  Roasted pork are used to enhance the taste of the dish. You can just use 3 layer pork to substitute it.

d)  The proportion of the main ingredients is totally up to you. You can always choose to have more vegetables and less meat, or more beancurd. It’s totally up to your choice. There ain’t any golden rule to it.

e)  DO NOT add salt when cooking since the salted vegetables is already salty enough.
