    I was very low of diner stuff and thought I would try this, however I didn’t have all the ingredients ( honestly I apart from the pork and brown sugar I didn’t really have any of the others) so instead of crushed garlic I used garlic oil, instead of minced chilli I used sweet chillie sauce, instead of miced ginger I used giner powder, Instead of oyster sauce I used hoisin sauce. I used normal Soy sauce and used seame seeds instead of oil. As you can see really didn’t have the ingredents but Thats what I love about this site. I had things that where close enough and the end result was Delishes My four kids LOVED it and wanted seconds so Thank you, I might not have followed the recipe but it gave me the idea and guideance to turn pork mince and random pantry essentials into a delish chinese inpired meal for five 😀

    Thanks Melinda 🙂

    A hit with all, they actually wanted more but none left. Couldn’t use kecap manis ( sweet soy sauce) so substituted coconut aminos with an extra 1/2 tblspn sugar.

  3. Cooked this tonight and it was awesome! Super easy to make and everyone loved it! Next time I might even miss the rice and eat it with lettuce!!

  4. YUM! Made this tonight. Was a bit concerned about the amount of sesame oil as don’t mind a bit but not a huge fan. Stuck to the recipe though & didn’t notice it. Had on rolls with lettuce as wanted to use rolls up. Will make again. Thanks

  5. So yummy…I didn’t have chilli flakes but I used sweet chilli sauce instead…will definitely make it again as I have been looking for something different with mince…also thickened with cornflour as well

    We were seriously blown away with the amazing flavour of this budget dish ? Can not fault it whatsoever ? I didn’t have crushed chilli so I added 2TBS of sweet chilli sauce in it’s place, I added 1 cup of frozen mixed veggies with 1 hour to go and then added 2 × 200gm packets of hokkien noodles for the remaining 30mins of cooking time ? A super delicious recipe ??? Thanks so much for sharing this with us Melinda Harrison, it was a huge hit here ?

  7. Thoroughly enjoyed this meal, as did the rest of the family. I followed most of the recipe with only changing the kecap manis for dark soy sauce, pork mince for beef, minced chilli for flakes..still turned out delicious and will definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing ?

  8. Thanks Melinda
    I made meatballs out of the pork mince but next time I’ll add finely chopped red capsicum n shallots.
    Just with the mince & onions the balls kept their shape.
    I didn’t have beans but used broccoli (1 1/2 mins in m/wave)
    And added to the pot in the last 10 mins.
    I used my 1.5ltre pot and cooked on High just under 2 hours.
    I served it in a bowl with a cup of Jasmine rice. So yummy.
