My Favorite One Dish Meal


One of the easiest dishes to prepare. You've got meat and vegetables in one dish and all you need is a bowl of rice. But for me, I can eat this by itself, no rice required. 

Yup, it's part of my carb cutting meals. As long as I have my meat and vegetables and it tastes good, I am happy.


This is one of my mum's regular dishes which graced our dining table during my teenaged years. It was always good because my mum seasons the sliced meat with light soya sauce, sesame oil and pepper. 

I'll be eating lots of these stir fried dishes with different types of vegetables. 

Mixed Fried Vegetables
Recipe source : Phong Hong

Ingredients :
- 300g pork loin, sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 tbsp light soya sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp pepper

- 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 6 shitake mushrooms, soaked to soften and sliced
- 1/2 green capsicum, sliced
- 1/2 red capsicum, sliced

- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp light soya sauce
- 1 tbsp oyster sauce

Method :
1. Season the sliced pork with minced garlic, light soya sauce, sesame oil and pepper. Set aside.
2. Blanch the broccoli for about 2 minutes and remove to a bowl of cold water to stop it from overcooking. Drain and set aside.
3. Heat oil in wok and stir fry the sliced capsicum for about a minute. Remove and set aside.
4. In the same oil, saute chopped garlic until fragrant.
5. Add the seasoned pork and stir fry until meat turns opaque.
6. Add sliced mushrooms, light soya sauce and oyster sauce. Stir to mix.
7. Adds a bit of water to simmer the meat and mushrooms.
8. Once meat and mushrooms are cooked, add the blanched broccoli and capsicum and stir to mix everything up.

  2. Without rice, I'd need a big bowl, more meat, more vegetables, to be full....and more cost! Eating healthy is expensive...that's why it's difficult to do on a regular basis....haiz :(

  3. Yummy. I like this. I just had broccoli last night. As matter of fact, I cook it almost twice a week. Rich in mineral and vitamins. My kids love broccoli. I stir fry it with carrots and mushrooms, seldom add any meat to it.
