Steamed pork with mustard greens (梅菜扣肉, pinyin: Méicàikòuròu) or mei cai kou rou is a Chinese dish from the Hakka people. It is very popular and tasty but contains a lot of saturated fat.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Wash greens and discard tough stems. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add greens and time 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Drain again, then cut greens into long diagonal strips.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cornstarch and water. Stir in sugar, soy sauce and rice wine. Cut pork into thin slices and add to the mixture. Marinate about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Heat oil in a preheated wok or large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add black bean sauce and stir-fry 1 minute, then add pork and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add mustard greens and water. Mix well and simmer gently about 4 to 5 minutes, until pork is cooked through and greens are tender.
  4. Season with pepper and serve.
