If your dialect is Hokkien, there is a high chance that you would have tasted this dish before at home as this is a common home cooked dish found in many Hokkien families. In Singapore, this dish has gone beyond dialects and is quite a favourite amongst many homes. To me, this is a no fuss simple to cook meal when I feel extremely lazy yet totally satisfying when it comes to the taste.
The main ingredients needed include:
- 3 pieces of bee hoon ( Rice Vermicelli )
- 1 small Shredded Chinese cabbage
- 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
- 1 can of braised pork belly
- 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce
You can adjust the number of pieces of vermicelli according to the number of people you are feeding. Rule of thumb is 1 piece feeds one person. My go to brand is the A1 brand of bee hoon. For the canned pork, you can use either braised pork belly, pork cubes, pig trotters according to your preference. 1 can is just nice for 3 bee hoon. If you are cooking a big batch, you will need more than 1 can.
This is my first time trying my hand at filming the whole process of cooking and editing it so it can be easier for some folks to follow. I will be building up my channel as well with more videos but will be a slow one until I get proper equipment for filming. Meanwhile, I will keep both the blog and the video as the blog will have more details in writing.
