Finally my hubby has recovered, means I can cook something alittle oily for him..;p Anyway, he still need more rest and healthy food to boost up his antibody..:)
Its alomost another week pass since school starts, but my daughter is looking forward to next week's holiday again. *Gosh*...why so many holidays??? That's because the school doesn't have a hall for the Standard 6 (UPSR) examinations, so the lower grade got to miss their lessons...:( This will make the kids getting lazier, but in another way, I have another week break...;p
Right, back to my post. this a dish / rice that I used to have since I was a kid. My mum used to cook this quite often for us. Maybe its easy and she only need to whip up everything in a pot then serve....haha! There are alot versions that I read from other bloggers about "long bean rice" but I just love the way my mum served us..:)
Here's her version.....
2 cups rice (washed and soaked for 1 hour)
2 tbsps dried shrimps (soften)
200g long beans (cut into 1")
150g pork belly (thinly sliced)
10 shallots (diced)
550ml-600ml water (might not need all)
Marinade the pork belly with:
2 tsps sesame oil
1 tbsp light soy sauce
a dash of pepper
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp thick / black soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
~ add those seasoning into the rice (as shown below)
~ Panfry the shallots and dried shrimps until fragnant. Add in pork belly and stir fry alittle while.
~ Add in long beans and mix well.
~ Add in the rice with seasoning and mix well. Lower the heat and add in water (about 300ml) until just covered the rice (shown above). Simmer at low heat.
~ Stir rice every 5 minutes to prevent from sticking the wok or burn.
~ Add in water little by little and stir well while simmering.
~ Continue adding the water if the rice is not cook, and always simmer at low heat until cook.
~ Total cooking time is about 25-30 minutes.
We love this rice, and I usually cook this once every 2 months..:) Then till now I notice I did not post this before..hehe! Hope that you'll like this recipe as much as I do.
