This is a good all purpose cooking mince which can be used and useful in many chinese dishes. It’s easy to make and gives instant flavour to any dish, plus it is delicious to eat just on its own (guilty), if you so choose.
I will often use this if I want to cook something quickly and it’s usually powerful enough to still give that depth of flavour.
400 g pork mince (for best results use mince with 10% fat or more)
4 spring onions, green part only finely chopped
1 thumb-sized ginger, finely chopped
3 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoon groundnut oil or vegetable oil
3 tablespoon all purpose Kikkoman gf soy sauce (or light soy sauce)
5 tablespoon Sanchi gf soy sauce (dark soy sauce)
