Hmm what can I say? I’m having beancurd fever! Of course that doesn’t explain why I’ve been idle for nearly 10 days. I make Perilla Leaves Kimchi again and also experimented with some new recipes; resulting in 2 successes and 1 failure. Deep fried beancurds with minced pork is one of the successful experiment.

This dish is really easy and quick to prepare. So simple that you can close one eye to cook. Hehe

Deep Fried Beancurds with Minced Pork

Yummy yum-yum!

Let’s cook!

Ingredients

Ingredients from top to bottom: hard beancurd, soaked dried shrimps, chilies, garlic and chopped spring onion. You can choose to mince the dried shrimps slightly or just leave it as it is (like what I did).

Fry Beancurd

Wash and pat dry the beancurd and then fry until golden brown.

My gold bars! Haha
Cut ‘em into slices and arrange on a serving plate.

Fry Garlic & Add Pork and Dried Shrimp

Now in a clean wok, add oil. Fry garlic until fragrant. Then add minced pork and dried shrimps. Stir fry until aromatic. Next, add seasoning and stir fry briefly until well combined and cooked thoroughly.

Turn off the heat and pour over the fried beancurd slices. Add chopped chilies and spring onions. Serve immediately. Easy right?

Deep Fried Beancurds with Minced Pork

I won’t say this dish is healthy since it involves deep frying but my God you would be surprised at the overall taste. It’s good man! The wonderful aroma of dried shrimp combine with beancurd and minced pork are just perfect. Do not ignore the chilies and spring onions. They have their parts to play as well.

Enjoy!

Btw, I’ve set up a store in Messy Witchen. If you’re looking for Chinese cookie molds, feel free to have a look. Also, my Tupperware Lovers blog is having a sale right now. Do have a look too. Thanks!
