San Choy Bow

San Choy Bow is one of my all time favourite dish! Not only it is a diet friendly dish but also it is simple to make and delicious at the same time. The beauty of this dish is all down to the sauce, all you need are 4 things to make a beautiful authentic sauce. JC has cooked up this dish in no time for our dinner tonight. Traditionally this recipe calls for pork mince but you can also substitute with chicken, turkey or beef mince depending on your preference.

Ingredients:

1 iceberg lettuce

1 tablespoon olive oil

500g pork mince 

1 zucchini, diced

4 baby corn, diced

1 small yellow capsicum

Big handful of green beans, diced

1-3 button mushrooms, diced

Sauce

3 tablespoons oyster sauce

2 tablespoons light soy sauce

1.5 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

Thickening

1 tablespoon of cornflour

3 tablespoons of water

Directions:

1) Combine sauce ingredients and set aside.

2) Heat oil over medium heat and fry mince until evenly browned, set aside.

3) Add the green beans and baby corn, cook for 3-5 minutes until soften, then add zucchini, capsicum then lastly mushroom and cook for further 2 minutes.

4) Increase heat to high. Add pork. Cook, stirring, for 4 minutes or until cooked. Pour in San Choy Bow Sauce and mix through mince. Simmer for a couple of minutes to let the mince absorb that tasty sauce.

5) Combine cornflour with the water and quickly add to the mince and sauce until it thickens up.
