At first, i tried with pork meat floss, but the taste was bland due to i added too much of water. So the next day I tried with chicken meat, reduced water and adjusted seasonings, then it taste better this time. But I still feel the taste can be improved further to stronger taste..Anyway, I prefer the texture of pork floss more than chicken floss
Meat floss is versatile, can be enjoy with porridge, stuff with sandwich, bread's filling and etc..I saw some people even using those leftover pork meat from the soup (most people usually drink soup but not eating the meat) to make this meat floss too. Anyway, store bought meat floss still taste nicer (it is more fluffy than homemade), but homemade meat floss is safe to consume, because we know what ingredients used.
