Who can beat a plate of char siew rice at a food court for S$2? There is lots of rice, char siew, and a bowl of soup. Even eating in Hong Kong at Cafe de Coral for Char Siew rice is almost HK$25 each. But I try to avoid Char Kway Teow when in Singapore in food courts, since it is way too fatty. I make it myself, with less oil, and it tastes exactly the same with only a few spoons of oil. Ah, the wonders of learning cooking from Mom......................
It really is easy:
- 1-2 sticks Lap Cheong (Chinese Sausage)
- A block of fish cake, julienned
- 1/2 red onion
- Some Green Onion
- A bag of bean sprouts
- A bag of fresh Hor Fun (rice noodles)
- 2 Eggs
- Sweet Soy Sauce
- Oyster Sauce
- Sugar
The fish cake, Lap Cheong, onion is all cut up and put into the pan, with some oil. I combine the uncooked Hor Fun with soy sauce, sugar, oyster sauce and mix it around. Then, when the Lap Cheong, fish cake, onion are all cooked, combine it with the Hor Fun, and mix around until the noodles are hot and cooked. Then when its about done, add the beaten eggs, and its bascally done.
