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.

One of the many wonderful dishes that mom makes when we were a kid involves fatty pork and meehun, and whenever she cooked them, we would finish it in record time. The succulent and overly savory pork with those soft vermicelli never disappoint, and I’m glad to say that I finally manage to do it at our own kitchen.

I present to you – fried meehun with canned stew pork, the sin food.

The ingredients are plenty simple and should be available from just about anywhere in the world with an Asian/Chinese grocery store.

Ingredients:

  • canned stew pork
  • choi sam (or any leafy vegetable)
  • half a clove of garlic
  • chili padi if you like it spicy
  • mushroom (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil
  • soya sauce to taste
  • dark soya sauce (1 teaspoon)

Cooking Instructions:

  • soak meehun in water for 30 minutes (or until soft)
  • heat up the cooking oil and fry garlic until fragrant
  • add vegetables (always add the stems first as they take longer to cook) and cook for a couple minutes
  • add canned pork and stir for a minute
  • add meehun, chili padi, soya sauce, and dark soya sauce
  • stir, and close the lid of frying pan for a minute to steam and avoid losing too much moisture
  • serve while hot!

The recipe is fairly simple and you really can’t go wrong. A big can of stew pork is probably good enough for four portions of meehun, do use appropriately sized frying pan for this job. We cooked for only 2 of us so the amount of pork we ended up consuming was a bit too insane.
