Taiwanese Braised Pork Rice (滷肉飯)

I have tried the Taiwanese Braised Pork Rice from Xiao Ba Wang and very much wanted to cook it myself. While browsing through the seasoning in the shop Kwong Cheong Thye, I found this Sweet Bean Paste that might be able to make this Braised Pork as close to those in Xiao Ba Wang. Though the taste not exactly the same but it was quite close and good enough for me. 


350g minced pork
2tbps dark soya sauce
2tbsp sesame oil
dash of pepper
5 hard-boiled eggs
5tbsp dark soya sauce
2tbsp sugar
1 bunch of Xiao Bai Cai (steamed)
cooked rice
2tbsp olive oil
1tbsp chopped garlic
2tbps Sweet Bean paste
2tbsp dark soya sauce
dash of pepper


1. Marinate minced pork with dark soya sauce, sesame oil and dash of pepper. Keep in fridge for 1 hr.
2. In a pot, add water enough to cover the hard-boiled egg. Add in dark soya sauce and sugar and use low heat to boil until eggs are darker in color.
3. In a frying pan, put in olive oil and add garlic, stir fried till slightly brown.
4. Add in the marinated minced pork and keep stirring.
5. Add in sweet bean paste, dark soya sauce and pepper, stir well. Add some water and simmer for a while.
6. In a bowl of cooked rice, place on top with vegetables, eggs (cut into halved) and minced pork. Ready to serve.
