Canned Food Convenience - Minced Pork in Bean Paste with Tofu Puffs & Veggie
It looks like we're still on the lazy-ass canned food "series" :p
I can't believe I haven't tried this little can of deliciousness before, minced pork in bean sauce!
It's, again, SC's recommendation...(it sounds like he grew up eating a lot of canned food :p)
He told me that normally it can be heated/steamed and eaten with rice as a dish, but of course, we wanted a more "balanced" meal, so he suggested to stir fry it with some vegetables (brilliant idea), and I added some tofu puffs and more fresh minced pork to make it more substantial ^_^
- 0.5lb minced pork
- 1 can of minced pork in bean sauce
- around 8 pieces of tofu puffs, quartered
- 1 clove of garlic, crushed
- 4 small heads of lettuce, washed, remove stem and ripped
- a dash of fish sauce, olive oil, hot water, white pepper
Saute garlic in a bit of olive oil, add lettuce, let cook until a bit wilted, add a bit of fish sauce, set aside. Pour the can of minced pork in bean sauce, add the fresh minced pork, add a bit of hot water for easier mixing, once the meat's cooked, add tofu puffs, let cook for a bit, add the lettuce back in, mix everything well, let everything get heated through, and serve with (a few bowls of) steamed rice ^_^
Quick and tasty all-in-one dish, perfect for weekdays.
