One of my favorite canned food is the stewed canned pork. It is basically savory heaven contained within a can that can be unleashed upon in the kitchen at your convenience throughout the clock. If I had to build a nuclear bunker, this will definitely be one of the stocked up item for me.

Today, I’m going to share with you one of the easiest ways to make use of this godsend ingredient – by making canned stew pork with potato dish that goes very well with steamed rice.

    I don’t really like the canned ones because the amount of oil inside can be disconcerting, even for stewed pork standards. Last time I had, I had a hard time getting rid of the excessive oil. 😐

  5. Looks good, never tried that. I use the pork to fry bihun, lovely!

    My girl came home from Sg Petani and introduced sardines with potatoes – she used to eat that at an Indian stall there. We tried, not bad – quite nice too,

  6. i hope you’ll invite me to your nuclear bunker, since i wouldn’t mind enjoying some stewed pork with potatoes during the apocalypse. i’ll try to bring the wine 😉

  7. I’ve never thought of putting potatoes. I usually add “sang choy” to canned stewed pork ribs to mask the thought of the unhealthy meat…hehe! 😀

  8. Hahaha…was just talking about this canned pork with the hubster and he requested for fried meehoon with it. Haven’t had luck with which particular brand to buy though.

  9. Try it with ‘tau kee’ or dried bean curd sticks. Easy, yummy & fail proof for busy working ppl.
