About this recipe:This is a popular poor man’s food that almost all mothers can cook, at least in Singapore. It’s the most convenient way to have a quick delicious meal during work week. A lot of people also like to cook Pork Leg Bee Hoon during parties.
Chinese New Year is just around the corner. You can see how easy it is to turn a simple can food dish into a classy festive dish that’s fit for the King!
Heat oil & fry garlic till fragrant. Add ½ the sauce, bee hoon, then pork. Cover lid & simmer for 2-3 mins.
Mix well. Add vegetables & remaining sauce. Cover & simmer for another 2 mins.
Meanwhile, rinse fish lightly. Heat oil & fry fish till crispy. Do not fry on high heat or you’ll burn the fish. Serve the fish at the side of your delicious bee hoon or you can place them on top. Put chilli if you like it a little spicy.
For an improvised version, I always like to add a crispy touch to the bee hoon. These are called Mermaid Fish & it really perks up the entire dish.
Use your hands when removing the bones so you can feel.
