Huiji Mui Fan

Mui Fan (烩饭) is one of my favourite childhood dish and even until now I still love this dish despite of whether homecook or store bought from the Cze Char stall(煮炒摊). You can easily create your own style of Mui Fan with different ingredients such as seafood, meat or vegetables. In this post, I would share with you a new version of my "herbal flavour" mui fan using Huiji Waist Tonic and Red Wine Lees.


HUIJI MUI FAN


With a twist and inspiration from my usual mui fan, I decided to come out with something herbal and nourishing for the family. Also mui fan can be consider as a quick one dish meal which consists of cooked rice, meat, vegetables, egg(optional) and gravy in a plate. I love this type of comfort dish which is so easy to prepare and with less washing up to do too.


(Serves: 2 | Preparation: 5 minutes | Cooking: 5 minutes)

Ingredients:
150g Pork Fillet, thinly sliced
60ml Huiji Waist Tonic
2 Serving Of Cooked Brown Rice
4 Slices Ginger, shredded
1 Stalk Spring Onion, cut into sections
2 Tablespoons of Hong Zao (red wine lees), optional
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
1 - 2 Eggs


Method:-
1. Preheat frying pan with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, sauté ginger and spring onion till fragrant.

2. Stir in pork slices and cook 10 seconds, add in the red wine lees if using and continue to fry till meat is cooked.

3. Pour in 60ml Huiji Waist Tonic, crack in egg(s) and gently give the mixtures a few stirs. Simmer the mixture for 10 seconds.

4. Off the heat, season mixture with salt and pepper before spooning it on top of the cooked rice.

5. Garnish with some chopped spring onion, cut chilli and serve immediately.


As for this dish, try to use either pork or chicken fillet so that the meat can be easily cooked and remains tender when bite. And also for those who like pork liver, you can add in some together with the pork fillet to create a better flavour and texture for this dish.

  2. I've never tried this before, but having an egg in the stir fry always catches my attention! Delish!

  3. Do you have any other confinement dishes? I find most confinement dishes boring...and not very palatable.

    1. Hi Lyna, not really most of the confinement food are rather similar. STEAMED and Stir-fry with either ginger, wine or sesame oil :)
