Minced Pork and Salted Olive with rice

This recipe was one of my favorites when I was a kid. It is a Thai-Chinese food because it was originated in Thailand by Chinese. Having eaten it again remind me of my childhood.

The salted olive can be bought in can from any asian supermarket.


  • Minced Pork, 1 cup
  • Salted Olive, 1/2 cup
  • Minced Garlic, 3 tablespoons
  • Sugar, half teaspoons
  • Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Chopped lime, red hot chillis and gingers


  1. On medium heat, stir olive oil and minced garlic on a pan until golden brown.
  2. Add minced pork and continue to stir until cook.
  3. Add chopped salted olive and mix well. Continue to stir for a couple of minutes
  4. Serve with rice and chopped lime, red hot chillis and gingers. Ornate with coriander leaves on top (optional)

Stir-fried Morning Glory (Thai)

I made this dish the Thai way, since I live in Thailand. The food has Chinese origin apparently, though. Thai people love to add a small amount of fish sauce. In Thailand, we love to eat it with plain boiled rice.


  • Morning Glory, 1 bundle
  • Black bean paste, 1 tablespoon
  • Fish sauce, 1/2 tablespoon
  • Vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Red chilli, 2-3 pieces
  • Garlic, 2 gloves


  1. On a wok, put in vegetable oil on medium heat. Add garlic and stir until golden brown. Add red chilli.
  2. Put in morning glory, keep stirring, add bean paste and fish sauce. Raise the heat to high. Keep stirring for a minute or so.
  3. Serve with a bowl of plain boiled rice
