Stewed Green Radish with Tofu


  • 50g pork belly
  • 50g lean pork
  • 1 green radish
  • 1 block of firm tofu (Northern tofu)
  • 10g chopped green onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cilantro (coriander) root
  • 1 dry chili pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Tai Tai Le Chicken Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Tai Tai Le Cooking Wine
  • 1 small handful of dried shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 3g salt
  • 2g white pepper powder
  • A dash of sesame oil
  1. Peel and cut the green radish into sticks as thick as chopsticks. Cut the tofu into small cubes. Slice the pork belly and lean pork.
  2. Prepare chopped green onions, garlic slices, and dry chili segments.
  3. Heat a pan with oil, add pork belly first to render the fat. Stir-fry until the pork belly releases oil, then add lean pork slices and stir-fry until they change color. Add 1 tablespoon of Tai Tai Le Cooking Wine and stir-fry to remove the gamey taste. Add chopped green onions, garlic slices, and dry chili, and stir-fry until fragrant.
  4. Once the onion aroma is released, add green radish sticks and stir-fry over high heat to remove moisture. Once the radish is softened, add boiling water and bring the soup to a boil. Add a small handful of dried shrimp.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce and a little Tai Tai Le Chicken Sauce to the soup. Add the tofu cubes, cover with a lid, and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes.
  6. When the radish is tender, season with salt and sprinkle a little white pepper powder. Turn off the heat and drizzle with a little sesame oil. Garnish with cilantro segments before serving.
  7. ✅ Finished ✅
