What is Taiwanese Braised Pork Belly Rice?

Taiwanese Braised Pork Belly Rice is sometimes known as Minced Pork Rice. This infamous dish is iconic to Taiwanese cuisine. It is the ultimate comfort food made using pork belly braised in a savoury-sweet umami sauce. Nonetheless, this dish is heavy and quite fatty.
To make this dish healthier without losing its identity, we used tempeh. We like using tempeh from Tempea.

tempeh

WHAT IS TEMPEH?

Tempeh (tempe) is a fermented soybean product that Indonesians like to use in traditional Indonesian cuisine. Tempeh uses a mould culture called Rhizopus. It produces a white outer layer as the mould’s mycelia spread and grow in and around each soybean. As a result, this network of mycelia is what holds the product together into a patty-like consistency.

Unlike tofu, it has a firmer, “meatier” texture with a savoury, nutty flavour profile.

We like using tempeh made by Tempea – made using certified organic, non-GMO soybeans!

Thoroughly cook your unpasteurized tempeh with an internal temperature of 165° F (75° C). Do not eat raw tempeh.

HEALTH BENEFIT OF TEMPEH

Tempeh is a rich source of plant-based protein and fibre that is low in saturated fat, free of trans fat, cholesterol-free, and sodium-free. It is also an excellent source of iron and calcium and may increase bone density and prevent bone loss. Fermented foods have probiotics that promote good gut health!

Do not consume tempeh that exhibits signs of spoilage: off odours, soft, mushy texture, pink discoloration, dark brown coffee-like beans, slimy or sticky texture.

How To Cook Tempeh?

There are various ways to cook the tempeh. Some people like to steam it, and some people like to grill or pan fry thinly-slice tempeh.

I prefer to break up tempeh pieces in a boiling pot of water for ten minutes with 1/2 teaspoon salt to remove the bitterness.

How to Cook Vegan Taiwanese Braised “Pork Belly”

You do not need to marinate tempeh ahead of time for this Taiwanese “Pork Belly” Rice recipe because you will be braising the tempeh on the non-frying pan.

save $10 when you purchase an Always Pan with this link

We love using our Oprah approved Always Pan (save $10 when you purchase an Always Pan with this link).

This essential cooking pan is ceramic non-stick made without PFOAS and PTFES. I love the modular lid to release and trap steam effectively, perfect for braising recipes – sautee first and braising after.

Sautee the tempeh with garlic, ginger, finely chopped green onions, chilli peppers for a few minutes.

Next, add in your marinade sauce: dark soy, light soy, Shaoxing wine, rock sugar, honey, soy packet and water. For convenience, I like using Vietnamese spice for beef pho soy packs. You can purchase this at any Asian supermarket or online. Alternatively, you can use a five spice spice mix combination of Szechuan peppercorns, cloves, cumin, star anise and cinnamon.

Braise the tempeh at low heat for 30 minutes.

While the tempeh is braising, cook a pot of rice in your rice cooker. For this recipe, perhaps the most crucial ingredient is a hot bowl of white jasmine rice. Scoop the braised tempeh and sauce onto the rice and serve!

I bet you can not just eat one bowl of rice with this vegan braised tempeh recipe!

Lemon Coix Seed Water 檸檬薏米水

Lemon Coix Seed Water 檸檬薏米水

Coix seed / barley water is naturally diuretic and helps to reduce heat and remove dampness! It’s been super humid lately so this drink is the perfect detox sweet soup!

檸檬薏米水清熱去水、去濕、能改善水腫和排毒,自己煮簡單又經濟。

Raw coix is “cooling” and invigorates the spleen. Cooked coix is used to detox the liver.

Enjoy it hot or chilled for a refreshing summer drink!

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHINESE HERBS

生薏米 Raw Coix Seed – It has the appearance of a deep concave on one side. Its primary characteristics removes dampness and wind – suitable to drink during Spring. Its nature is cold and suitable for people with a hot body. Raw coix seeds invigorates the spleen, relieve diarrhea, improves spleen and intestinal pain.

熟薏米 Cooked Coix Seed – It has a puffy appearance, similar to a rice crispy cereal. Cooked coix seed nature is cold, but less so compared to raw coix seed. It also invigorate and improves the spleen, relieve diarrhea diuretic, and intestinal pain.

外型脹身。清熱疏肝,適合夏天煲水飲用。寒性較輕、健脾止瀉、利尿、改善脾風濕、脾痛和腸痛。

The benefits and medicinal usage of both raw and cooked coix seeds are similar. The main difference is that raw coix seeds nature is much colder, so when you use raw barley it is important not too put too much in. You can use half of each to make the drink/soup more neutral (not too cold and not too hot.)

It is great to drink this to cool of the heat in the hot summer months and immune boosting in the winter.

What is Bibimbap?

Bibimbap is a traditional Korean rice bowl packed with vegetables, rice and meat and served with gochujang sauce, namul (wild and spring green vegetable salad), kimchi, or doenjang.

“bi bim” means mixing various ingredients

“bap” noun refers to rice.

Make it Plant-Based!

We love the option to substitute meat with a plant-based alternative like Beyond Meat®. Plant-based options allow you to eat more, not less traditional dishes we love while maintaining equal protein levels with no animal counterparts, no cholesterol, and less saturated fat, and no antibiotics or hormones, for instance!

This Korean rice bowl finishes with a spicy-sweet sesame sauce and brings all these vibrant ingredients together for a classic Korean experience.

Now, let’s learn how to make this vegan bibimbap with Hello Fresh’ easy step-by-step and delicious, easy recipe!

Drop It Like It’s Hot

How Spicy is Gochujang?

Depending on the brand, it can be extraordinarily spicy, but this chilli pepper paste is also salty with a slight sweetness. In addition, it has a distinct flavour – kind of like a “spicy miso paste.” Gochujang works with other ingredients and best cut with water, sugar and even vinegar!
