Taiwanese Lu Rou Rice [台湾鲁肉饭]

Taiwanese Lu Rou Rice is one of the popular food in Taiwan. I missed this rice bowl I had in Taiwan railway station during my trip in Nov 2013. The sweet and savory taste that make every mouthful of rice full of flavor.  I am trying to replica it and hope you love this dish too. Simple rice bowl for a long day at work and school. Do you love it too?

Reference from here and did some modification by Taglicious

  • 300g of pork belly, cut into small stripes
  • 4pcs of dried mushroom, soaked and cut into small pcs
  • 30g of dried shrimps, soaked and cut into small pcs
  • 40g of rock sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of fried shallot
  • 1 star anise
  • 1.5 tablespoons of light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce
  • 180 ml of hot water
  • 3 hard boiled eggs

  1. Pan fried the tap dry pork belly on a non stick pan without oil till it is golden brown.
  2. Add in the dried shrimp and stir fry well.
  3. Add in the dried mushroom and stir fry well.
  4. Add in the rock sugar and star anise, follow by the dark & light soy sauce and mix well.
  5. Add in the fried shallot and stir fry well.
  6. Add in the hot water and mix well. I transfer the whole dish into a smaller pot so that everything will submerge in the sauce.
  7. Add in the hard boiled eggs and cover the lid to let it simmer for 20 mins under low fire. Stir the dish every 5 mins in order to let it cook well. The dish is done! Serve it with some boiled greens to make a balance meal.
