Geez, I hope this is the right place for this recipe. This is one of my favourite mum's dishes. Since now, I have branched out to start my own family, I better learn how to cook this. Not too sure if it is called marrow green as that is what stated in the package when I bought it from NTUC. The Chinese name is called 毛瓜. This is not really a soup dish, just that I like it soupy so that I can pour the soup over my rice.



Serves 4
What you need:
1 marrow green 毛瓜, remove skin and cut into strips
300g minced pork
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt, to taste
350mL water
1/2 tsp MSG (optional)

Method:
(1) Add 2 tbsp of oil into wok and stir fry garlic until fragrant.
(2) Add in minced pork and fry until half-cooked.
(3) Add in marrow greens and fry for 5 minutes or so.
(4) Add in water and cover to simmer for 10 minutes.
(5) Add salt to taste. Dish up and serve.

Hmm... I didn't know there are bitter ones. This is my first attempt cooking it, I just pick a nice green looking one.

Wow, so many variations. I'm sure with tang hoon or eggs will be very nice. I love this dish very much! I can slurp up all the gravy.
