Pumpkin & Pork Rice Vermicelli
This pumpkin & pork rice vermicelli (fried bee hoon) is a balanced one-dish meal with pumpkin, meat, cabbage, choy sum and noodles. I experimented by using my favourite Taiwanese shallot sauce as the base for the meat & sauce. The taste is fantastic :p
If you don’t eat pork, you can substitute it with mince chicken, or omit the meat for vegetarian version.
This is my bottle of shallot sauce, which is the same brand (Bull Head) as the famous sacha sauce. In this dish, the sauce is used to season both the meat and the noodles. I used to buy many bottles of this shallot sauce whenever I travel to Taiwan. Nowadays, since Sheng Siong has started to import this, I no longer need to stock up on them when I’m overseas. This shallot sauce is a great discovery for me, because I frequently do a meal prep dish of my favourite shallot meat sauce with it. I’ll make a video recipe for that at the end of the year.
