Pork Yum Cha (Pork Chow Mei Fun)

Chow mei fun with pork is simple and delicious. Tender shredded pork, chives, and bean sprouts fill this dish. You can make an entire supper in only one pot.

Where can I Find Mei Fun

Rice vermicelli or thin rice noodles made in the Chinese form are known as mei fun (or mai fun) and are popular across Asia. It’s frequently the star ingredient in hearty soups and stir-fries. Singapore noodles, a meal made with mei fun, curry powder, prawns, pork, and veggies, are quite popular. It was supposedly introduced to Singapore in the early 20th century by Chinese immigrants. Nonetheless, that’s a widely-loved meal across most of China.

We don’t need a lot of fancy stuff in our everyday home cooking. Simple things like chives and bean sprouts may make a great meal out of mei fun.
