Mei Cai Kou Rou: A Simple Cooking Guide For You

Mei Cai Kou Rou is a dish made of pork and vegetables. It is considered a delicacy in China, and is often eaten during special occasions. The dish is said to be named after the two main ingredients: mei cai (pickled mustard greens) and kou rou (pork).

Mei cai kou rou, or pickled mustard greens, is a popular Chinese dish made from fermented mustard greens and rice. The pickling process not only enhances the flavor of the dish, but also preserves it for long periods of time. Although mei cai kou rou can be enjoyed as is, it is often served as a side dish alongside other main courses. In this article, we will show you how to make mei cai kou rou at home.

How To Make Mei Cai Kou Rou: A Simple Guide

Making mei cai kou rou is a relatively simple process that can be done with a few easily accessible ingredients. This dish is a type of braised pork belly that is enjoyed for its delicate and addictive flavor. Mei cai kou rou can be served as a main course or as an appetizer, and it is sure to be a hit with everyone at your table.

The first step in making mei cai kou rou is to cut the pork belly into 1-inch cubes. If you are using a frozen pork belly, make sure to thaw it completely before cutting. Next, season the pork cubes with salt, pepper, and Shaoxing wine. Shaoxing wine is a type of Chinese cooking wine that can be found in most Asian markets. If you cannot find Shaoxing wine, you can substitute dry sherry or cooking sake.

Once the pork is seasoned, heat a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and then add the pork cubes. Sear the pork until it is browned on all sides. This step helps to create a flavorful crust on the outside of the meat.

After the pork is seared, add the mei cai (pickled mustard greens) to the pan. Mei cai is a type of pickled vegetable that can be found in most Asian markets. If you cannot find mei cai, you can substitute another type of pickled vegetable, such as sauerkraut.

Mei Cai Kou Rou

Stir the mei cai and pork together until the mustard greens are wilted. Then, add enough chicken broth to cover the ingredients in the pan. Bring the liquid to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pan and let the pork simmer for 1-2 hours, or until it is cooked through.

Once the pork is cooked, remove it from the pan and allow it to cool slightly. Then, cut the meat into thin slices and return it to the pan. Once the pork is browned, add the mei cai (or Chinese pickles) and the Shaoxing wine to the pot and give everything a good stir. Then, add enough water to cover the pork cubes and bring the pot to a boil. Stir in some dark soy sauce and sugar to taste. The dark soy sauce will add color and depth of flavor to the dish, while the sugar will help to balance out the salty flavors.
