Potato with minced meat

Potato minced meat, our kind of comfort food. This is a dish that is good to go either with porridge or rice. Just two simple main ingredient yet it would give you so much appetite. Sometimes I would use beef, sometimes pork. Either of the two, you would still end up eating more. =)

Ingredients

  • 2 big potatoes (sliced )
  • 350g minced meat ( beef or pork )
  • 2 minced shallots
  • 1 tsp minced garlic

Gravy

  • 1 cup water = 240g
  • 1 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1.5 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp potato starch

Method

  • Mix all the gravy together and set aside
  • In a heated wok at medium hight heat, drizzle enough oil to fry the sliced potato. Add in the potato when the oil is hot. Use a chopstick to check the oil. Bubbles surrounding the wooden chopsticks indicate that the oil is ready. Fry until the potatoes are golden brown or tender. Lay the cooked potatoes on a kitchen towel to soak up excess oil . Remove the excess oil and leave just about 2 tbs oil in the wok
  • Add in the minced garlic and shallots . Stir- fry until fragrant
  • Add in the minced meat. stir fry until all the meat becomes light brown or cooked through. Break up meat chunks into bits.
  • Add in the sauce, followed by the potatoes. Let it come to boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve hot with steamed rice or porridge.
