Minced Pork Congee

One of my favorite childhood breakfast is minced pork congee which I usually bought at a stall in front of a kopitiam near my parents house. Since I live in Jakarta, it was very hard to find the same congee whenever I craved for it. Once I’ve found it in a kopitiam at Teluk Gong, but on my next visit, they seller had moved. So this morning, I tried to make it for breakfast. I once tried to make this congee using rice cooker, which ended up a disaster :) So this time, I make it using a soup pot. It was quite easy and I didn’t follow the exact recipe, I just add water whenever I felt the congee is too thick :)
Minced Pork Congee

Serves: 2
Preparation time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 30 mins


  • 3/4 cup short-grain rice, washed and drained
  • about 4 – 5 cups water
  • 50 g minced pork
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cm ginger, smashed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stalk lettuce, finely sliced


  • Add rice, minced pork, garlic, ginger and half the water into the pot, stirring gently until the water boil. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • After 15 minutes, add another half of water. Towards the end when most of the water has evaporated, stir frequently to prevent the congee from sticking. Add more water as necessary to get the desired texture.
  • When the congee is soft and mushy, stirred in the sliced lettuces. Remove from heat and serve immediately

    Kenapa pake rice cooker gagal Jen? Gue denger katanya bisa? Untung belum coba :D Biasanya gue pake slow cooker (semalaman) tapi jadinya bubur yg tipe halus, gak seperti lo punya di atas.

    di rice cooker gw ada setting ‘porridge (1 hour)’ sih, gw coba + masukin aer sesuai takaran bubur. masaknya sejam blom jadi bubur juga. trus karna aernya kebanyakan jadi beleber kemana2. jadi kayanya pake kompor lebih cepet deh :)
