tomato pork mince

Fried Tomato with Minced Pork is a dish I learnt from my mother-in-law. Well, perhaps not exactly learnt but she cooked it and I ate it. Recently, we had a few tomatoes lying in the fridge and I thought why not give it a try. I did not ask my mother-in-law for the recipe and tried to cook it to resemble the one she cooked and it turned out quite alright.

 

It is a simple dish, and takes just a couple of minutes to prepare and cook. Actually, you just need to cook the minced pork. The amount of time for the stir frying of the tomato is pretty much up to you. The longer you cook it, the softer it becomes. If you prefer it firmer, just give it a few stirs to coat it with the sauce. Try this recipe for Fried Tomato with Minced Pork. It is quite appetising and suitable with steamed white rice.

 

This is the recipe for Fried Tomato with Minced Pork

    This is very close to a dish my mom made with tomatos, but she use green onions/scallions instead of onions, and she also use thinly sliced beef, and some green peas as well as a 1/2 cooked scrambled eggs just before it is done.
