Stir Fry Minced Meat with preserved turnip

I've been preparing quick meal for dinner lately. Not that I don't like to cook anymore but other things require more attention. Nevertheless, it's still yummy or probably I'm not a picky eater. :-)
Also did some photo shoot of rape seed oil field that coming to full bloom now, all over the farming field near where I lived, what a photo opportunity it is.

Stir Fry Minced Meat with Preserved Turnip
Ingredients (for 2 persons)
  • 250gm minced meat (pork/chicken)
  • 2 shallots-finely chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger-finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic-finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp of light soy sauce (I use Kikkoman less salt soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of preserved turnip-finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of shaoxing wine
  • 5 tbsp of water
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable cooking oil+1/2 tsp of sesame oil
  • 2 stalks of spring onion-finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli for garnishing (optional)
  1. Heat the oil in a pan/wok. Once it's hot, add in shallot, garlic and ginger, fry till frangant. Then add in the turnip and give it a good stir fry.
  2. Add in the minced and fry for around 2 minutes on high heat until slightly cook. Then add in the soya sauce and wine and mixed well. Add the water and sugar as well.
  3. Close over with a lid and turn the heat to low and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Off the heat and throw in the spring onion.
  5. Garnish with chopped red chillis. Served with rice.
