Many of my readers, as well as some of my friends said that their everyday life are so hectic, they hardly have time to even cook a simple and nutritional meal for their family.
I know exactly what they mean. When our children were still young, my schedules were so tight and jam packed daily. Most of the time I only had about 30 minutes to cook them a meal.
Therefore I've gathered quite a collection of 《 Fast nutritious family meals 》, and whenever I serve any of the dishes, my family always like them.
Today's main dish is Diced Pork with Preserved Vegetable & Bean Curd.
隨便配碟粉絲蝦米炒椰菜 ( 捲心菜 / 高麗菜 )。
Served with stir - fried cabbages, dried shrimps and vermicelli.
徇老公要求蒸一小碟薑絲鹹魚 ( 這個應不可能列入營養食譜之內 )。
In addition to this, my husband's special request - a small piece of steamed salted fish with shredded ginger.
( 4 人份 )
- 中型豆腐 8 塊約 650g，切 1 吋丁方
- 豬頸肉 400g 切小丁塊 ( 比豆腐小 )
- 榨菜 1 罐，滾水浸 10 分鐘去鹹味後瀝乾
- 青、紅燈籠椒各 1 隻切小粒
- 鹽 1 茶匙
- 生抽 (醬油) 2 茶匙
- 糖 1 茶匙
- 麻油 2 茶匙
- 酒 2 茶匙
- 生粉 1 茶匙
- 蠔油 1 湯匙
- 辣豆瓣醬 1 湯匙 ( 隨個人愛辣程度加減 )
- 麻油 1 茶匙
- 糖 1 茶匙
- 生粉 1 茶匙 + 水 2 湯匙
1. 豬肉用醃料醃 10 分鐘。豆腐用水蓋過，加鹽 1 茶匙，大火燒至水開，期間攪動一下讓浮面的 燙熟，關火，瀝乾。
2. 燒紅鍋，下油 1 湯匙；加入榨菜，略炒乾後加 1 茶匙麻油，2 茶匙糖炒至糖溶便盛起。
3. 用濕厨紙抹乾淨鍋。大火燒紅後下油 1 湯匙旋勻燒熱，肉粒放入兜油後排開，保持空間且不要隨意翻動，不然肉不會變金黄，待一邊煎香了才反轉另一面也煎至金黄，加入豆腐一同兜炒片刻。
