Gu Long Stewed Pork Slices with Rice Porridge

First and foremost, yes yes I know I am slightly obsessed with spring onions and seem to overload most of my Asian dishes with what seems to look like too much spring onion topping... my bad!

Every once in a while, eating something that comes out of a can is not the end of the world. Quite the contrary with a select few cans that can ONLY be found at Asian Grocers. I grew up eating rice porridge - whenever I'm sick and unwell, my mom or dad would make me a bowl of porridge. Sometimes it's just plain porridge with salted egg or century egg. Other times I get a lovely bowl of "bak moi" or pork porridge. Either way, a good bowl of porridge can be the ultimate comfort food!

Which is why I'd like to share this product with my readers - Gu Long Stewed Pork Slices - available at most Asian Grocers in Australia and supermarkets everywhere in Malaysia.

To cook plain rice porridge, just boil 1 cup of white rice in 6 cups of water until rice is soft and forms a smooth, creamy porridge. Serve porridge in a bowl. Remove half of the contents of the Stewed Pork Slices can and heat in a separate bowl for 1 min in the microwave. Top the heated pork slices (and its juices for flavor) on top of the porridge and sprinkle chopped spring onions. Enjoy while it's hot!


  1. maybe i'll just do that tmw. kida tired

  2. I so wish we had a good Asian Food Grocer nearby! This dish looks amazing, and we'll for sure seek out the pork you reference here!

  3. I used to eat congee every morning for breakfast when I was in BKK... I sorely miss that starchy goodness with all the toppings. I never seem to make it taste the way it did there.

  4. I love this with fermented soy beans and tofu cubes out of a jar, also with pickled "lettuce" (it's not really lettuce, just a mis-translation I think) out of a jar. I tried the Gu Long pork as you suggested, and it's so delicious but also terribly fatty. I will have to keep it as a rare treat.
