Braised Stewed Pork Ribs Meehoon (rice vermicelli) 红焼排骨米粉

My mom used to cook this version of traditional Hokkien braised stewed pork ribs meehoon (rice vermicelli)  when we were young. I love this simple and great taste of braised meehoon, by simply pour a canned of stewed pork ribs 红焼排骨 or pork belly (much oily than use pork ribs) into meehoon, don't need to add much seasonings.

Just realized that this type of canned pork ribs not cheap anymore...

Separate out the gravy and meat..don't need much seasonings since the gravy itself already very flavourful..

I like to enjoy this meehoon with a bowl of sweet soup, like this time we enjoyed with a bowl of boiled tapioca sweet soup.

The other day, I saw my bro Chef and Sommelier also" Hokkien lang" did cook a similar braised mee hoon but he used pork trotters.

Hey, are hokkiens all the same all over the world? OK. Malaysia and Singapore are neighbours. My mother made this for us when we were young. I totally forgot about this dish. Will make this for my children so that they know they are half hokkiens. And to add on, thanks to your tips about Rome. We went there and your posts on Rome was helpful.

Hi Sonia, looks like many 'Hokkien lang' prepare this noodle. My mum and MIL usually will prepare this especially on the eve of most festive occasion [need time to prepare ingredients for next day's prayers]. Easy and yummy. Me too prefer pork ribs for this beehoon.

Jozelyn Ng said...

My mum like to cook this as well when I was young! I can still remember the smell!

Shu Han said...

Sonia this is exactly how my mum fries beehoon too! With stewed pork! The flavour is amazing because there's so much 'ho liao' :) I am so happy to be back for christmas- can just ask my mum to mke this for me tmr hehehe. You've made me real hungry for it now!

Sokehah Cheah said...

I've not eaten this canned pork ribs for a long,long time. It's indeed flavourful with the bihun!

lena said...

yeah, this can of pork stew is quite tasty..i used to cook this just with po choy ( spinach )

AL TAN said...

Sinfully delicious. We used to throw away the pork gravy because it was so oily, now we know there is an alternative use to the oil.

Mich PieceofCake said...

Bee Hoon braised with stewed pork is the most delicious type of bee hoon ever.
