ieat’s cooking show: Ep 2 Salted Fish Steamed Pork Recipe

In this video, we learn from Mr Koh of Fragrant Garden Teochew Restaurant how to make a very simple, yet delicious dish which everyone can make at home.

The key ingredient inSalted Fish Steamed Pork is the salted fish or mui heong which you can buy from your local wet market provision shop. This salted fish is soft and mushy and you can easily turn it into a paste which is mixed with the ground pork.  The second key to the recipe is in the kneading and “beating” of the minced pork to give it a bouncy texture which Mr Koh demonstrated in the video.

Once you have tried making this dish, I guarantee that it will be on your list of common home-cooked dishes because it is so easy, tasty and economical!


Minced pork 300g
Salted fish, 1 Tbsp
Tapioca Starch 2 Tbsp
Water 2 Tbsp
Sugar 1 tsp
White pepper
Ginger sliced 1 Tbsp
Chilli sliced 1 Tbsp
MSG optional 1/2 tsp

There are many versions of this dish.  Here is the link to my previous version where the salted fish is placed on top of the meat instead of mixed into it.

  1. My favorite weekly dish made by grandma for us! I figured out it tasted different back in those days because she would mince the bak by hand and chopper whereas neither i nor my cousins could be bothered to do so #MeatGrinder
