baked beans mince


Baked Beans is not Asian. I don’t think it is. But I’ve seen some of the rice shops here in Kuala Lumpur which serve baked beans cooked with other ingredients. This is just one of the many variants and it adds a bit of difference to the usual baked beans.


You can eat this with white rice or even fried rice. I suppose you can actually eat it on its own but you may have to adjust the taste (especially the tomato) so that the taste is not too overpowering


This is my recipe for Baked Beans with Minced Pork and Potatoes



  • 1 tin of baked beans
  • 50 grammes pork mince
  • 1 medium sized potato (diced)
  • 1 medium sized onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 tin of water (use baked beans tin to measure)
  • 2 tablespoons Cooking oil (palm oil)



  • 2 teaspoons tomato ketchup
  • a pinch of salt




Heat oil in wok and fry potatoes till golden brown. Remove fried potatoes and set aside. Remove oil and leave just about 1 teaspoon of oil in the wok.


Fry the onions till aromatic. Add minced pork and stir fry till cooked. Add baked beans and return the fried potatoes into the wok. Stir well.


Add water and seasoning and bring to boil prior to serving.

    I love baked beans, sometimes I add bacon or sausage to it. Some “png chai” food stalls in Singapore have baked beans with luncheon meat as a dish.

    hi again!

    well.. adding the tamarind juice doesnt make it too sour for me (purely personal opinion =)) but actually brings out the oomph in the dish.. the way i normally do it is to fry the cubed potatoes, fry the cubed spams, fry an omelette (then cube them or slice into small pieces) and the rest is the same as you did it =))

    Thanks for the recipe. My wife is pregnant and very sensitive to food that’s too overwhelming. She loved this simple dish as it was simple to eat. I made some stir fry cabbage on the side.

    While frying the minced meat, I added some Chinese black vinegar and light soy sauce and that gave the meat a ncie flavour. And I added more than two tsp of Kethup to make it more tangy. Was really nice. Thanks again
