Farmhouse Stew 家乡焖 猪肉

Farmhouse Stew 家乡焖 猪肉

Recipe source :  Chopsticks Recipes ~ Chinese Casseroles

This is the first time I am using soy bean to cook a savoury dish although there were times I used soy bean to boil soup. But then it was different because the beans used for boiling soup were usually discarded. 

This farmhouse stew used soya bean as one of the main ingredients together with meat and gluten puffs. Make sure the soy beans are thoroughly cooked until soft. I prefer them to be soft which taste better.


500g pork belly
160g soy bean, soaked until soft, about 4 to 5 hours
160g gluten or bean curd skin
80g tung-choi
2 slices ginger
2 shallots
1 bulb garlic
1 tbsp oil


1 tsp wine
1 cup stock
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sesame oil


1.  Clean and wash pork belly. Dry thoroughly and cut into large pieces.
2.  Drain the soaked soya beans.
3.  Cut glutton into pieces or leave them in long pieces ( it's up to you )
4.  Soak tung-choi for a while and squeeze dry.
5.  Shred ginger, slice shallots and garlic.
6.  Heat casserole with 1 tbsp oil.
7.  Fry ginger, slice shallots and garlic until fragrant.
8.  Put in pork pieces and sprinkle with wine. Stir well.
9.  Add soya bean, tung-choi and glutton.
10. Pour in stock and cook for 20 minutes till soya bean is soft.
11. Add seasonings and adjust taste.
12.  Serve in casserole.

  1. Hi Doris, very yummy and I can have this as a one-pot dish :)

    1. Hi Ivy, that's what I did. One-pot dish! Nice and easy.

  2. I like the way you have braised the dried bean sticks, The sauce must be so flavourful and will go well with rice.

    1. Hi Mich, both the sauce and the beans were flavourful. When added to rice...yum!

  3. Hi Doris,
    This dish looks delicious! I have to try using soya beans for soups.
    Thanks for linking to CYB!

  4. looks delicious....just mouthwatering!

  5. Hi Doris,

    Like you, I prefer my meat stew and soy beans to be cooked for longer hours for extra tenderness :D How long more did you cook yours?


    1. Hi Zoe, For this time I followed the instructions which was 20 minutes. It was okay because the beans had been pre-soaked. I guess it can be cooked much longer for another 10 to 15 minutes in the claypot for that extra tenderness.
