Easy, Yummy Chinese Meat Patties – A Sure Favourite With Children & Adults Alike

Really Delicious Chinese Meat Patties

Good evening, dear friends :D

Ah, it has been some time since I last posted my recipes here and I thought you may like this one – I call it “Chinese Meat Patties”.

They are really easy to make and so delicious, you have got to try it. The meat patties are juicy, light and very flavourful, especially when dipped in some bottled sweet chili sauce and eaten with hot white rice. They will be a sure hit with young children, especially those with finicky appetites! :lol:

I always make a large batch of these and they are usually all finished in one sitting, with none leftover. :wink:

The ingredients are all versatile and there is no need for fixed measurements of anything. Use my recipe below as a rough guideline, okay?

All you need are some minced meat (like pork or chicken), minced prawns, eggs, green onions, coriander leaves, dried mushrooms, carrots…..and you are all set to go.

Yummy Chinese Meat Patties (serves 6)

Ingredients :-

500 gm minced pork or chicken or both

250 gm minced prawns

1 medium onion, 1/2 small carrot, some green onions, some coriander leaves, 3 soaked mushrooms – all chopped finely

5 to 6 eggs, beaten

2 heaping tbsp corn starch

2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp white pepper

2 tbsp soy sauce

Salt to taste

Some oil to panfry patties

Method :-

1) Put everything together in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. The mixture is supposed to berunny from the eggs…not dry and hold its shape like making hamburger patties.

2) Let stand for 1/2 hour (longer is better)

4) Heat up a non-stick pan at medium high fire with some oil to just coat the bottom

5) Drop in meat mixture with a small ladle or a Chinese soup spoon (the size of the patty is up to you)

Meat patties being panfried gently in some oil

6) When you notice that the edges of the patties are starting to turn whitish like in the picture above, it is time to flip them over gently.

7) Cook for another1 to 3 minutes until the patties are cooked through.

8 ) Tip – taste the first patty to see if there is enough salt…if too salty, add a little sugar to balance….if not salty enough, add salt or soy sauce

Voila! There you have it…yummy, really easy to cook, Chinese Meat Patties. See how your children or family members go at them … for children, dip the patties in some tomato ketchup. :wink:

Bon Appetit! :D

With best wishes,

choesf :D

      It’s good to see you here, dear Louise. How have you been? I read in the local newspaper that your area is having lots of snowfall. Hope you are keeping warm there! I’m sending some hot, tropical air your way! :lol:

      Take care and do have a lovely weekend!

      With best wishes,

        Hi chosef,
        The snow has finally dissipated and it looks like we barely missed another this weekend. Thank you for the tropical air flow. I’m sure it has helped:)

        Hope all is well with you. I do hope you will be posting a delicious meal for your New Year celebration. I’m thinking of doing a post but if I don’t, I would like to “announce” it on twitter. Stay well, chosef…

        Hi there, dear Louise :D

        Yes, I am well and happy. Thank you. Hope you are well, too! I am busy decluttering and cleaning my house in preparation for the Chinese New Year. Everything at home is taken out, dusted or cleaned, some thrown away or sent for recycling. This is to move the energies around the home, getting rid of the old and stagnant chi, and making room to welcome new energies, especially with the Chinese new year. :lol:

        I’m glad your snow has finally gone. I used to love the cold and winter when I was in Oregon back in the 80’s but now that I have grown older, I am afraid of the extreme cold conditions. :oops: :lol: Here, we are having some unusual weather – very hot during the day and then thunderstorms during the evenings and nights. This kind of weather is unhealthy and causes flu/sorethroats.

        About one week before the Chinese New Year (it falls on Valentine’s Day this year), I will be planning my Reunion Menu and posting it here. :wink:

        Do have a lovely weekend!

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

    I have been eyeing this recipe for a while now. I think I will go shopping today after I clean the house and purchase the ingredients. I want to make this for tommorrow for brunch. I will make yellow rice and broccoli as side dish and a fruit bowl. Thanks so much for the recipe..my kids will love this!!!

      Hi there, dear Stephanie :D

      This is a really simple Chinese heritage dish that went back many years. I remember eating it as a kid. Hope you kids love it, too. It tastes very good when dipped in ketchup (like some of my children do) or in bottled sweet chilli sauce. :idea:

      Do have a wonderful weekend!

    To add 1 – 1 1/2 tbp of salt plus 2 tbp of soy sauce is a disaster. The dish came out horriblly salty and it is going to to be a wasted dish.

      Hi there, dear Roland :D

      Thank you for your feedback – I’m sorry for the typo there – it should be “teaspoons” and not tablespoons of salt. My apologies… :oops:

      I had edited the post and just left it as “salt to taste”.

      With best wishes,

      choesf :D

        Roland said,

        No worries dear. Since I still have half of the patty undone, I will add another 200gm of minced pork to counter the saltiness. In all, it would have been a yummy dish if not for the salt thing. Wouldn’t just adding a bit more soy sauce be better than salt for this recipe?

        Hi there, dear Roland :D

        Yes, that’s a great tip – just add more minced pork to the overly salty patty! :idea:

        You can add more soy sauce or salt to taste, if you like. The soy sauce that I use is not very salty and so, I usually add a little more salt. Some soy sauces are very dark in colour and may make the meat patties dark, too. :wink:

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D

        You are innovative. Oh, I forgot to mention earlier that I added a tbs of chinese cooking wine and some oyster sauce as well. It was very tasty but unfortunately was marred by the saltiness of the dish. Well, it’s back to the drawing board for me. Mom grimaced when she took the first bite and I knew I was in trouble, heh heh.

        Ooops… :oops:

        Heheh, I thought of another way to eat the salty pork patties :idea: ===> boil some rice porridge. Cut up the meat patties into bite sizes and add that to your porridge to simmer for about 10 minutes. The rice porridge should draw some of the saltiness and the porridge would be very yummy instead. Can add some carrots to the porridge, too. :lol:

        With best wishes,

        choesf :D
