Roast Pork "One Pot" Rice


Siew Yuk One pot rice

At times when one is lazy, "one pot" rice using an electrical rice cooker would be the mother of all solutions. Ahhh the wonders of us, Asians, having a rice cooker in almost every household heh... Haha without slaving myself over some hot stoves nor pot, the rice cooker is indeed Lord sent. It's a very versatile electrical item where you can boil water/soup; cook your rice or congee/porridge; use it for steamboat or even bake a cake!!!

As with before where I've made a "One Pot" Rice that have ingredients like chicken, French beans, Chinese sausage, mushroom and black fungus; this time round I have roast pork which I've gotten from my butcher, long beans, dried shitake mushrooms and Chinese sausage.

In order to have an aromatic rice, other than using dried shrimps which I did not use this time, I sliced some shallots and deep fried them till a light golden brown. Remove the shallots from the oil. Keep the oil for other times ie cooking or dribble over noodles or vegetables.

Soak dried shitake mushrooms till soften and slice them up. Chop up a bunch of long beans into even length. Slice up Chinese sausage. Wash up some rice and add in enough water to cook them. Pour in oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste. Next, add in all the ingredients mentioned earlier. Cook in the rice cooker. Once cooked, continue to let the rice cook thru in the "Keep Warm" function.

Right before serving, stir in a couple dashes of Shaoxing wine, the deep fried shallots and chopped spring onions. Close the lid and let the aromas steep into the rice for about 5 minutes. Serve hot.

I tell you, this rice is so scrummy until hubby and I have seconds which is very rare for me. Even my boiboi ate up in a gusto!
