Braised Narcissus Pork Trotters Bee Hoon/Rice Vermicelli (猪脚米粉)

I have been quite busy lately and when it's time to prepare meals for my family, I go for the simplest and the easiest way; without having to cook few dishes. It would usually all-in-one pot dish or just one-dish meals. I usually serve noodles or bee hoon (rice vermicelli) when I am busy or just for a change.

Braised Pork Trotters Bee Hoon is one of our favourites.  I am sure most Chinese families have been eating this since their childhood days and I am no exception.  It's so easy to prepare and yummylicous too.  I remember Phong Hong's Braised Pork Trotters Bee Hoon which I came across recently and decided to follow her recipe.  In fact, it's more or less the same, except that my way of cooking has added ingredients such as shredded mushroom, bird's eyes chilies (cili padi) but minus the fish sauce and Chinese Cooking Wine.  Do hop over to Phong Hong's blog and you will be drooling over her yummy pics.  So, this time, I practically follow her recipe with some very minor changes.

Ingredients :
- 1 packet bee hoon
- 2 cans Narcissus pork trotters with mushrooms
- 1 bunch of choy sum
- 6 cloves garlic (chopped)
- Cooking oil

Sauce ingredients : (to taste) - Mixed and stir well
- 1 tbsp dark soya sauce
- 2 tbsp light soya sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- A dash of Chinese cooking wine (Hua Tiao Chiew)
- Hot water (enough to braise the bee hoon)

Method :
1. Rinse and soak bee hoon in water until softened. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat up oil in wok and saute garlic until fragrant.
3. Empty the cans of pork trotters into the wok.
4. Briefly stir it over low heat for a while before adding the sauce mixture.  Then, turn up heat and bring the sauce mixture to a boil.

5.  Add vegetables and bee hoon.  Stir and mix well. If you need to add water, do add hot water.

6. Cover the wok and braise the noodles on high heat for about 10 minutes or until noodles are cooked.

7. For even braising, toss the bee hoon occasionally.
You can see that there are still some chunks of meat.  I didn't break the meat into small pieces as hubby prefers chunky meat!
I usually stock up a few cans of Narcissus Pork Trotters and packets of bee hoon so that I can cook this yummylicious braised bee hoon whenever we crave for it.
You can also serve it with bird's eyes chili soy sauce
Have a wonderful week ahead :)

  2. It's the same with me Ivy, one pot meal especially noodles which is perfect. Pork is a taboo for my other half, therefore I shall cook with maybe with fish but the rest the same for the wonderful flavors.

  10. Hi Ivy, sorry for not commenting for a while...been having technical issues. I have a high security system, and it is not letting me comment on 'high activity' blogs with lots of content, but I by-passed the security and tried a different way!
    I adore your comforting and delicious, healthy one-pot noodles dish with all the wonderful veggies, and the pork infused flavor! Hugs,

    1. Hi Amelia, then, don't take the meat. Just the bee hoon itself is so flavourful. Eat with chili padi or sambal, I tell u, 1 bowl is not enough for you. Thanks dear and cheers :)

  16. Hi Ivy, ho chiak but I usually discard the fats. Sometimes, I used the braised pai kuat instead of pig trotters.
