Pumpkin and mince stew 南瓜焖肉
I'm so far behind on blogging... Was sick for 3 weeks and only beginning to feel better this week. this extremely cold and wet winter really hit me hard... low motivation, carbo cravings, mental sluggishness just to name a few. >__<
I've a few recipes lining up, just no time to blog yet. Will play catch-up soon... ^__^
Up next is pumpkin and mince stew!
1 quarter pumpkin, cut into pieces
200g minced pork, marinated with soy sauce and corn flour
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small piece ginger, grated
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Shaoxing wine
1 tbsp oyster sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in pan, sauté ginger and garlic till fragrant. Add minced pork and stir fry till brown. Gently break the mince up with spatula. Add soy sauce, wine and oyster sauce, mix them well.
Add the pumpkin pieces and some water, stir fry for a minute. Cover pan with lid and gently simmer for 10 minutes. Add more water if it gets too dry. Season with salt and pepper.
Dish and serve with steam rice.
