Macanese Minchi 澳門式免治


My sisters and mother are going to Taiwan tomorrow, this time my turn to take care my sister's children. I think it is fair, because everytime i went for "tumpang trip", they helped me to take care my children, hehehe..From tomorrow onwards, I have to cook for 9 peoples, start headache what to cook..

Ok, come back to this dish, this Minchi dish is totally new to me, at first look at the name, something like French cuisine and sound difficult to cook..After checking through the recipe, it is just a simple recipe..Minchi dish is a traditional dish from Macau, a simple recipe made by minced meat (beef or pork), potato, onion & etc..When you refer the Chinese name of this dish 免治, actually is refer to minced meat..
After eating this dish, i feel like want to visit Macau soon, ^_^..

I was amazing this simple recipe still resulted a great taste, and definitely a comfort dish.
If you are running idea what to cook especially in a lazy weekend, try this dish, you will love it!

I find Minchi also can be turned to a great filling for any pie, tart or rolls..I use the leftover Minchi and turned into rolls using puff pastry the next morning, YUM YUM!

This time, I cook by mixing minced beef and pork, you can also just cook it using beef. My advise is to deep fry potato cubes till brown for better flavours.

Mel said...

Oh this is my kind of dish....i loves potato but i will opt out the beef. Because one of my family member dont eat beef.at the look at the photo, this dish is more on dry type, right. Oh the left over you can use that for puff filling, isnt it good? Wah cook for 9, really headache. Plan and Draw out the weekly menu then! :-)

I didn't know minchi is a Macau dish? Mum used to cook this all the time for me coz I love it so much ... even with porridge. I don't think we have any roots in Macau either :) Thanks for bringing this back to me ... I definitely will be making it very soon! Ah ... good ol' days ....

Ann@Anncoo Journal said...

I love this minchi dish too and remember I had it once when I was in Macau. Next time I can cook this at home :)

Bernice Boon said...

好开胃呢!看似简单,味道却不简单吧^^

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

That's right, Sonia, I always call it肉碎but my mother-in-law(she is a Hong Kee)calls it免治肉, now I use both words, when I'm talking to a Hong Kee, I will automatically switch it to 免治肉! I always love using pork mince to stir fry with potatoes only but this looks like a new idea to me now! Thanks!

The minchi looks so delicious! I have never actually heard about this dish, but it looks really simple to make at home, like chinese stir fry...

Initially thought I'll be feasting on some Korean food, minchi = kimchi? Hahaha!

Hi Sonia, I love serving everything in 1 plate like this, what more it's complete with vege, proteins and carbo....this way no leftovers isn't?
Great idea.

I think is a bit like 肉碎酱.
I sometime will cook something like this for the topping of my homemade dry ban mian..:)

Alice said...

looking at the ingredients, i know my family will love this dish, Sonia
addition of fried eggs makes the dish look even more appetizing
yum! :)

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Japanese call ground meat "minchi" too. :) This sounds like a very easy to cook and even the flavor seems similar to what we cook at home (no recipe name but cooked at home). I like that you added fried egg!
Good luck with menus for 9 people!
p.s. Haven't heard anything from my MIL yet. Will let you know as soon as I hear from her. :)

lena said...

cooking for 9 people is not a problem to you at all, sap sap sui!
