another dish i decided to make for the 8pax OPS primary school buddies dinner on 7.3.2017 was bittergourd pork rib soup 苦瓜排骨汤.
during our recent hong kong eat & hike 20-24.2.2017.
it was good & tasty.
for this i prefer to steam pork soft bones, rather than to boil with the bitter gourd soup. it delivers a more tender & smooth, tasty pork ribs.
so just 2tsp fish sauce, 1 tsp light soy sauce, 1tsp sesame oil, 1 tsp oyster sauce, 1 tsp corn flour & mix well into 250g minced pork & steam for 1hrs 10mins.
i tried to reduce the bitterness of the bittergourd苦瓜, washing it with salt the day before & changing water several times.
i think more effective just to put into boiling water for few mins. will try that next time.
& additionally i use the intense chicken stock for the soup. so the soup was very tasty.
anyway, my friends all thought the bittergourd pork rib soup 苦瓜排骨汤 was very good.
