I have wanted to make those dry mee version that the stall sell. I have wondered what sauce they put into the dry mee. Every stall seems to have their own version. At first I tried concocting my own version when I couldn't find one online. I tried a few variations. After googling how to prepare the mince meat on dry mee, I came across this blog that gave instruction on how to prepare mince meat on dry mee! Her steps are very easy to understand and I had all the ingredient at hand!
I followed her instruction and added new ingredients of my own. After checking my freezer I realize that I have run out of mince meat. So I defrost some chicken breast meat and mince them in food processor once remove the bone. The portion enough to be eaten by 3 ppl.
I marinate them with light soya sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, pepper and cornstarch (watch out as light soya sauce and fish sauce are salty and fish sauce is optional). Marinate for 15 minutes. As for other ingredients I chop 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic, wash and soak dry mushroom in water till soft, wash some vege and poach an egg.
-Sauté the onion in oil till translucent.
-Dump the garlic in and fry till fragrant. (Both ingredients above may burn easily so watch out)
-Add mince meat and fry till brown before stirring and flipping to brown the other side. At this point I will shred the meat into small pieces.
-Pour in some oyster sauce and some thick soya sauce (for color). Oyster sauce is already salty so it is not necessary to add salt.
-Stir and pour in some water (depending on how much sauce u like). Remember that I soak and wash the mushroom at the beginning? The water will turn a bit brown from the mushroom and I just sieve and pour in the water to the mince meat.
-Cover and simmer till cook.
Poach the egg, blanch the mee and vege. Sprinkle some spring onion (optional). Put all of them together. When eating just mix all together!
