Porridge with (Prawn and Pork) Meatballs

My daughter wasn't well in school yesterday and returned home earlier.

I changed the dinner menu and made some meatballs to go with porridge instead. The meatballs were springy and the kids like it so much, they kept asking for more.

I told them I will make meatball soup for them today.

  • 100g Minced Pork
  • 130g Prawns Meat
  • 1 Egg White
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cooking Wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Corn Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • a pinch of salt
  • a dash of pepper

How to do it:
  1. Smash prawn and mince with knife till fine.
  2. Mix minced prawn with minced pork.
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Mix well with hands till mixture is sticky and paste-like.
  5. Scoop some paste and drop into porridge or soup.
  6. Cook till the float up to the surface.
  7. Cook for another minute and they are done.

  • Adjust the proportion of the meat on your preference.
  • I prefer to just smash and mince the prawn so it's not too paste like. Then you will still be able to bite into bits of the prawns. Use a blender instead if you like.
