White rice served with:
- Minced Pork Belly fried with Taukwa (豆干炒卤肉碎） – please refer to Creative Food Series which detailed the rationale behind cooking this dish;
- Fried Bok Choy with garlic (小白菜炒蒜茸）;
- Pork Rib cabbage soup （包菜排骨汤）
As explained in creative food series, my kids are happy with the combination of white rice served with minced pork belly and do not mind eating the same dish for dinner. I rejected their request of having a serving of fried eggs and instead include a green vegetable dish.
Not many Chinese families used cabbage to cook soup as they do not like the taste if not properly cooked. For me , I have boiled my soup with pork ribs, dried scallops, dried squids, red dates, honey dates and not forgetting a piece of ginger. As the seafood may cause the soup to become “fishy”, white papers were sprinkled over the soup and putting some cloves of garlics in the soup. My kids really love the soft cabbage and serving one bowl during dinner will definitely not adequate. Therefore, soups for my family were usually cooked using a big pot.
