Taiwanese Ground Pork Over Rice (肉燥飯)

by tina

There are many variations of this dish in Taiwan. Some use spices (star anise, 5 spice powder), or there’s the saucy (thickened with corn starch) slow cooked kinds. As for my version, I like to keep it simple. =]


  • ~0.5 lbs ground pork (good quality recommended)
  • 7 shiitake mushrooms, diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely minced
  • fried shallots (about a spoonful)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • black pepper
  • cilantro/coriander (optional)

(~4-5 servings)

Set the temperature to high. Add the oil once the pan is warm. When the oil is hotter, place the garlic in. Let the garlic sizzle a little and place the ground pork on one side of the pan and place the shiitake on the other. Quickly divide and separate the pork into smaller pieces while also stirring the shiitake.

When the pork is partially cooked (half cooked, half raw). Mix with shiitake. Pour in the soy sauce, stir, and continue separating the pork. Add the shallots. Stir.

Add black pepper to taste. Continue stirring for 2-3 minutes.

Super quick and easy. You could garnish it with cilantro/coriander.
