Easy One Pot Rice

This meal is dead easy, and only one pot to wash up later on, and it only takes 20-30 minutes especially if you own a rice cooker. I like Chinese mustard green, it does have a bitter taste, my husband said why would anyone want to eat this vege? It is an acquired taste I must admit. You can substitute it with green beans, other greens, diced pumpkin, or omit the vegetables altogether if you’re a bad boy/girl. If you don't have any roast pork on hand, simply substitute it with diced chicken (raw is OK as long as it's cut small or it won't cook completely) or any other leftover meat in the fridge.

2 cups of jasmine rice
2 cups of chicken stock
2 cm of ginger, finely sliced
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 chinese sausages, sliced
200g of readymade roast pork 
4 dried shitake mushrooms, rehydrate in water for 15 minutes, cut into quarters
5 pieces of wood ears (dried black fungus), rehydrate in water, then thinly sliced
50g of dried shrimp, washed
3 bunches of Gai Choy (Chinese mustard greens), roughly chopped
2 tbsp of light soy sauce (substitute with gluten free soy sauce if you need)
1 tsp of sesame oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1.          You’ll need a rice cooker, if you cook it on the stove you run the risk of burning the bottom.
2.          Pretty much dump all the ingredients into the rice cooker, leaving the vegetables last to sit on top of the rice.
3.          Press the cook button and wait for it!


  1. This sounds deliciously simple! I must admit I'm not a big mustard green eater but perhaps that's because I haven't eaten it enough! :)

  2. Aren't one pot meals the best? They're perfect for weeknight meals !:D
