'One Pot' Rice

Tuesday, 3 February 2009

I meant to post this a while ago but was distracted. This dish was made with the rest of the leftover meat from my 8-hr braised pork. I love flavoured rice and so I decided to use the remaining leftovers for this.

It was very flavourful and delicious on its own but it was awesome with the belacan chili made by Jade's (our flatmate) mum. Her belacan chili is really delicious and I eat it with almost everything now. I'm glad we still have 4 more packets. THANK YOU AUNTY!!!


8 hr pork rice


Ingredients:

  • 2 rice cups Rice - washed (1 rice cup=180ml)
  • 1 cup Leftover meat from 8-hr Braised Pork - shredded
  • Leftover sauce from 8-hr Braised Pork
  • 10 Chinese Mushrooms - softened & sliced
  • 5 slices Ginger
  • 1 tbs Garlic - minced
  • 2 tbs Oyster Sauce (or more to taste)
  • 2 tbs Kecap Manis
  • 2 tbs Light Soy Sauce (*edited* I would suggest you add this to taste after rice is cooked to suit your taste)
  • 1 tsp White Pepper
  • Spring Onions (for garnishing)

Directions:

  • Place washed rice, leftover sauce from 8-hr braised pork and enough water to cook rice in a rice pot.
  • Mix in other ingredients (except spring onions) and cook rice like normal.
  • When rice is cooked, add more oyster sauce and/ or light soy sauce to taste.
  • Garnish with spring onions.
  • Serve with some homemade belacan chili (if you have any) or chili oil!

Haha my favourite type of dish - rice with meat! I'm just a simple boy at heart. I can easily imagine a roadside hawker selling this in Malaysia.

Cheers,

chuck said...

I love leftovers, I aways think they taste better that way. I think it's because we usually mix it with other leftovers and create a new and wonderful flavorful dish.

dp said...

Will you be posting the belacan chili recipe? I'm dying to know what it tastes like. And of course the rice looks delicious too :-)

Tangled Noodle said...

I need to look for these sauces and pastes mentioned in your posts (belacan, kecap manis, sambals, bean paste, etc.) Rice and leftovers are a perfect tasty pairing!

Great photos! That looks mouth wateringly delicious! I'm curious, what is belacan chili?

veron said...

Your braised pork from your other post sounds delicious and with this rice it sounds doubly delicious. I do have most of the ingredients on hand including the kecap manis.

Sandie said...

Oh my. Your bottom photo has me craving rice! Lovely, just lovely.

Grace said...

boy, if i got a nickel every time i got distracted, i'd be a rich lady. :)
great rice!

pigpigscorner said...

Thank you all for your lovely comments =)

Little Corner of Mine: I used to call these homemade chili belacan chili. People call it hae bee hiam. I guess you can call it sambal hae bee too!

dp: I don't have the recipe for the chili. I will try to ask for it!

Marc:In Malaysia, a lot of families seem to have their own 'secret recipe' of chili made out of dried shrimps, most Chinese refer it as hae bee hiam (chili shrimp floss). While I just call them belacan chili, maybe because of the strong dried shrimp taste.

Belacan is actually shrimp paste which is widely used in Malay cooking. They normally come in blocks and you can get them from oriental supermarkets. We normally use it for sambal belacan where you pound together chili, belacan and other ingredients to make a dip or as an accompaniment to rice. Another popular dish is belacan kangkung, which is morning glory stir fried with belacan. Not to forget belacan fried rice!

Wow, this is using leftovers? I always associate leftovers with a bit of a mish mash dish but not this. Great stuff!

Clumbsy Cookie said...

Nice job turning leftovers into this wonderful rice!

Reeni♥ said...

That looks delicious!! I bet it was amazing with the leftover pork.

helen said...

I was so hungry last night, and this is exactly the kind of food I was craving for (I had to settle for a banana instead). Lovely!

Kevin said...

That is a tasty looking rice and a nice way to ejoy the leftovers.

Gattina said...

me too, crazy for flavored rice, yours is so pretty!

email2me said...

Throw in some Chinese wax meat or chinese sausages (Lap Cheong). It should make the rice more tasty.

Passionate Eater said...

Wow, your delectable mound of rice and wispy meat looks amazing. And I want an aunt like that!

Katherine Aucoin said...

What a clever way to prepare rice. It looks so savory! Your rice has me drooling.

Donna-FFW said...

One pot dishes are my favorite. And to use leftovers makes it even better!!

jesse said...

Oh my lawd, belacan AND 8-hr braised pork? This dish is TO DIE FOR. Mmmm!

Pam said...

Now that's my kind of rice! It looks delicious.

Little Inbox said...

I like one pot dish like this. I cook the similar dish too, but using chicken meat.

Wild Boar said...

mmMMMmm yeah waxed duck and lap cheong would've been awesome! But there actually quite a lot of pork already so we didn't want to add any extra meat/fat/protein.
