Prep Time:
 15 min
Total Time: 40 minutes
       Ingredients How to?

  • 1 bitter melon
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 pinch ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup ground pork
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Mushroom Soy Sauce
Tips and Techniques: Cut spare ribs can be substituted for ground pork. If you do, cut bitter melon into pieces 1" x 2". To make this vegetarian, just omit the pork and add a teaspoon or so of fried garlic. This is a dish that tastes good today and better tomorrow.
  • Cut both ends off from the bitter melon and slice it into 3-4 sections. Scoop out the seeds and the white fluff part. Be careful not to break the melon.
  • Mince garlic and mix it into the ground pork. Add salt and black pepper. Mix well.
  • Stuff each section of the bitter melon with the pork. Do not over-stuff the melon. The melon seems to shrink more than the pork when it is all cooked.
  • Add 4-5 cup of water into a pot. Add the stuffed bitter melon and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Let it boil for half an hour. When the melon turns a little yellowy green and soft, it is ready.
  • Serve hot with rice. This is a dish that tastes good today and better tomorrow.
