Claypot Rice with Minced Pork & Dried Squid
It's been a long time that I haven't made this pork & squid combo . I just steamed it usually and serve it as one of the main dish during dinner . But when we bought some take out from our fave dimsum shop last time , I ordered it and decided to make it myself since it's cheaper and I have all ingredients at home .
The previous claypot rice that I've made seems so fuzzy , so this time I just cook the rice the way when I cook it using the rice cooker , it's easier and it turns out okay . The sauce that I drizzle was from the dimsum shop ^-^" , it's really good compare to just a soy sauce but light soy will do ;D

* Wash rice and put in a claypot , add water . Cook over high heat , when it boils , scrape the bottom to prevent burning , give it a good stir and turn down to low . Let simmer for few minutes and when some of the water evaporates at the top , add the pork & squid mixture . Cover and cook for 20 minutes . Turn off the heat and let stand for 10 minutes before serving .
