Braised Pork with Black Fungus April 13, 2007

Posted by Angeleyes in Braise, Meat, Non-Halal.

I have wanted to cook something with black fungus as I like their chewiness. If I’m not wrong, these black fungus have some nutritional value as well but I’m not sure what they are… got to google it and find out 😛



  • 300g Pork (recommended to have both mixed pork belly and loin)
  • 30-40g Black fungus (pre-soak)
  • 3-4 Dried chilies
  • 6-7 cloves Garlic (coarsely chopped)
  • 5-6pcs Shallots (coarsely chopped)
  • 2 tsp Bean paste
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • Dark soy sauce
  • Light soy sauce or salt


  1. In a sauce pan, heat up 2-3tbsp oil and saute the chopped garlic and shallots till fragrant.
  2. Add in dried chilies, stir, add in pork pieces, stir, add in dark soy sauce and stir till meat is 50% cooked, add in bean paste, stir, add in black fungus, stir, add water, stir and simmer on low fire for 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Add light soy sauce or salt to taste.


Note: The bean paste is salty so if you don’t fancy salty food, can omit the soy sauce or salt.
