I specifically called my wife at the office and enquired about this dish that my boy and girl always ordered at mixed rice store. I asked what is the taste like? She told me it is soya sauce flavoured or in short, something taste like teriyaki. She is happy that I am going to cook this because she likes the dish too.
Though the kids always ordered this dish, i have never tried. Apparently they liked this dish very much and it seems that they have a weak point for potatoes. Any potatoes dish is welcoming by them. But their constant repeat order of the same dish make me wanted to try preparing it at home. I know it will be an easy peasy dish and the only uncertainty is the taste. That is the reason why I called my wife to confirm what she had eaten before.
When my boy was back and I asked him to try and comment, he said it is pretty close to what is sold in store. I asked him if it is nice, he immediately give me a thumb up signal and said that he liked the dish. Sorry for not being humble to say that I personally find that it is a nice dish to go with rice too and a suitable dish for potatoes lovers.
Home cooked dishes need no elaboration and the same applies to this recipe. To me, it is fast and easy to prepare except the slicing of potatoes. Well you can always use a manual or machine slicer if you have one at home.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Servings: 3-4 adult servings
- 100 grams of minced pork or chicken
- 2-3 potatoes
- Few sprigs of spring onion
- 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
Seasonings and others
- 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
- 2 tablespoons of dark soya sauce
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of corn starch mixed with 4 tablespoons of water
- Dashes of white pepper
STEPS OF PREPARATION
- Slice the potatoes into thin pieces, soak in water for 10 minutes, drain and change water. Let it soak for another 5 minutes until the water is clear. Drain .
- In a wok, put one tablespoon of cooking oil, sauté the minced garlic until aromatic. Add the minced pork and have a quick stir fry for about one minute.
- Add the sliced potatoes, stir fry for a minute before adding about 1-2 cups of water, followed by the dark soya sauce, sugar and oyster sauce. (Note the water should just enough to cover the potatoes and the quantities will very much depends on the size of your wok). Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes until the potatoes are soft. The simmering time will also depend on the thickness of the potatoes and the desired texture you are looking for. Sliced potatoes get cooked rather fast and if you want even softer potatoes, you can extend the timing.
- Add the corn starch and stir until the sauce thickens. Off the heat and sprinkle chopped spring onion. The dish is best served with white rice.
A simple dish for all to try. Since both my kids like the dish very much, I presume most kids will like it too. Not only kids, adult like me and my wife are enjoying the dish too.
