Childhood Fave - Potato Minced Meat in Bean Paste Sauce

I'm not sure about you but potatoes are my absolute favourite "vegetable" (in my context lah as a child hehe). I can eat them any style, well, not exactly any since those days we don't get fries. The most is mom would deep fry them before cooking them in sauces.

I'm glad, my next generation is carrying on this spud thingy in him as well. He adores my mother who diligently cook him potato dishes for his lunch and dinner a couple of times a week. I think he's the only one in the entire family appreciated her cooking openly cos he's the only one who will THANK his granma for cooking his favourite dishes. Sometimes she gets bonus kisses for that! The rest of us, like me - yes I'm guilty, would the most, praise how yummy her dishes were :p

Most times I usually braise chicken with potatoes in soy bean paste (mien si), sometimes I uses minced chicken meat, like this one - just to cheat the little fart to eat some meat.

Potatoes Mince Meat in Mien Si Sauce

Method is still about the same, fry some garlic in hot oil before adding bean paste. You may add preserved black beans as well. Next add in the minced chicken (pork also will come out well) meat that has been marinaded with some soy sauce, white pepper and a little corn flour (to make the meat smoother). Stir till browned before adding sliced potatoes. You can cut them into chunks too, deep fry them before adding in. Makes the potatoes tastier but I was too healthy lazy to do so. Keep stirring then add some water. Adjust seasoning, adding salt if not salty enough and a little bit of sugar to bring out the flavour. Put the lid on and simmer on low heat till potatoes are tender and the sauce is reduced.

Dish up and serve hot with rice.

Ah, this is one of my favourite too but now that I don't want to take to much carb, I ate less potato.
