Steamed Pork with Chinese Yellow Bean Sauce (Min Si)
My favorite of all the bean sauce...this min si sauce.
There's a perfect balance between the sweet and savory that I absolutely adore.
It can be used with most protein...meat, seafood, or tofu, or hell, I can eat bowls after bowls of rice just with the sauce alone ;)
Added a punch of heat using freshly chopped chillies and more savory fragrance from the spring onions.
In case you're not going out this weekend, give this easy and tasty dish a try.
- a plate of pork meat (or any other meat, I think chicken would taste super nice too), sliced
- about 2 tbsp of min si (if you're in Hong Kong, this can be purchased easily from the wet market, it's sold in tiny plastic bags)
- tiny bit of pepper, corn starch and oil
- freshly chopped chillies and spring onion for garnish
Marinate meat in min si, pepper, corn starch and oil, ideally for a couple of hours, if you're in a hurry, give it 15 minutes. Steam for 8 minutes or until the pork meat's cooked through, serve with lots of steamed rice.
PS. Did you notice my food photography stupidity? Instead of focusing on the meat, I focused on the spring onion chunks. Opps :p
