Pork Marinade


  1. Wash and clean pork loin or pork shank.
  2. Thinly slice pork with a sharp knife.
  3. Add pork strips, salt, white pepper, Shaoxing rice wine, ginger slices, cornstarch and a little vegetable oil in a large bowl. Mix well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
  4. Rinse and wash white jasmine rice a couple of times. On your last rinse, the water should be mostly clear (opaque white turns clear).
  5. Add white rice, marinated sliced pork, julienned ginger and fresh cold water into the pressure cooker (Instant Pot) on high pressure for 20 minutes. Close lid and let it naturally release pressure. If you are in a hurry, you can also opt of quick release.
  6. Carefully turn the venting knob to release the remaining pressure. Open the lid. Stir and check for a porridge-like consistency.
  7. Add Century Egg of your preferred size: large chunks, smaller pieces, diced, sliced or quartered millennium egg. It is up to you!
  8. The congee is then simmered until all ingredients are fully cooked and the flavours melded together.
  9. Garnish with finely chopped green onions, fresh cilantro, ground white pepper and sesame oil.
  10. Enjoy this symphony of flavours and textures.



  1. It is also easy to make and can be easily customized to your taste. Add some diced vegetables, like Chinese broccoli (Kai Lan) or baby bak choy, for extra flavor and nutrition.
  2. Congee is not the same as cooking white rice in the rice cooker and then adding hot water to it.
