Today is first day of the month. Let me post something very very useful. With this meat paste(you could also call it fish paste), you could easily prepare stuffed bitter gourd and any kind of hakka yong tau fu, or simply add in few spoons when you cook noodles, porridge or soup. It is so convinient and yet so tasty that it has now become my secret weapon. ;)
One pack of half fat pork, minced. I think it is about 600g.
4 pack of fish paste. This size. Of course you could also prepare fresh fish paste instead of using a ready pack.
You would need a big mixing bowl. Place the seasonings in the bowl. Seasonings are salt, pepper, corn flour and sugar. Chicken stock and MSG are optional.
Add in the minced pork.
Mix well with seasonings. You should mix in the same direction until the meat is slightly sticky.
Take out the meat paste and put it in a container.
Repeat the same for fish paste in the same mixing bowl.
Now you could add in the meat paste.
Here is the tricky part. You need to take out the whole mixture and smash into the mixing bowl. Repeat for many times(10 times or more) until the mixture becomes firm and springy.
This is how the end product looks like.
Keep it in few containers at different sizes for different usages and store it in the freezer.
