Beancurd with Spicy Bamboo Shoots and minced pork

This dish is made with very simple ingredients, simple process yet tasty. It goes very well with rice or porridge. I love bean curd and spicy bamboo shoots, hence the combination of these two ingredients is a perfect match. Simple yet delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4 pcs bean curd (่ฑ†ๅนฒ) – sliced into log shape ( refer to picture below)
  • 270g minced pork
  • 110g spicy bamboo shoots
  • 2 shallots (chopped)
  • 1 sliced long chili (deseeded)

Sauce

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp potato starch
  • 1 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp soy sauce

Garnish

  • 1 stalk green onion (chopped)

Method

  • Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Set aside
  • In a heated non-stick pan, add enough oil to pan fry the bean curd at medium heat. Pan fry until it becomes golden brown on both sides, around 1 minute on each side. Fry in 2-3 batches. Add oil if necessary in between batches. Set aside
  • Remove the excess oil on the pan, and just leave about 2-3 tbs oil. Using medium heat, add in the shallots and chili. Stir- fry for about a minute or 2.
  • Add in the minced pork, stir-fry and break up the meat into small bits. Stir-fry until all meat are lightly brown and cooked.
  • Add in the spicy bamboo shoots
  • Add in the sauce and let it simmer for a minute. Turn off the heat
  • Add in the pan-fried bean curd and gently mix all the ingredients well. Top with chopped green onion.
  • Serve with hot porridge or rice
