Burnt Bottom Rice Vermicelli with Mince Pork Gravy - MFF SABAH #13

Recipe adapted from Wendyinkk

Ingredients (Serves 6) - Some modified
300gm rice vermicelli (6 slices)
7-8 eggs (beaten lightly and season with dash of pepper & pinch of  salt)
 2 shallot, chopped fine
 5 garlic clove, chopped fine
250gm lean pork, sliced thinly - (I use mince pork)

Marinate for the mince pork:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sesame oil
dash of pepper
 3-4 tbsp corn starch
 5 bowl of water (1000 ml water)
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp Chinese wine
2 tbsp. chicken stock
1 tsp black tick soya sauce
 dash of pepper to taste
 METHOD -Some modified  
Soak the rice vermicelli in water till soften
  • Boil water in a pan and soak the rice vermicelli in warm water about 5 minute.
  • Put 1 tsp of cooking oil and fried the rice vermicelli for 1-2 minute before flipping other side for   few times.
  • Fried the rice vermicelli till slightly burnt.
 Note : I find this way can get the rice vermicelli more burn & easy to handle later.
  • Beat the eggs with dash of pepper & pinch of salt
  • Heat up the work and pour the egg into the work, making sure the fire is at medium low.
  • Gently place the vermicelli (ready burn) in the centre of the egg and let cook for another minute before flipping the whole egg and noodle so the vermicelli will be at the bottom.
  • Once the vermicelli takes on some golden colour and crisp up a bit, dish out on a big bowl with the egg side up, set aside. 
  • Marinate the mince pork with salt, sesame oil and pepper.
  • Prepare the gravy, mixing everything together and making sure no lumps.
  • Now add a little more oil, and heat at medium low. Add in garlic and shallots and cook till fragrant. Add in marinated mince pork and stir to all cooked. 
  • Add in the prepared gravy and cook till it thickens.
  • Dish up the mince pork over the egg and scoop gravy and drizzle all over. Serve while still hot!

The distinctive Flavour of Lihing Nilyn is a result of using traditional technique and ingredients passed down from generation to the next. This family made rice wine can be enjoy as a beverage or to be add zet to savoury dish. It is a must-serve during festival occasions such as wedding and Harvest Festival.

Since this is a family business, sorry LIHING (rice wine) recipe can't be share but we can purchase from them anytime. Contact Neo Enterprise at 014-651 1271 (Simon) /016-841 0505 (Vera) /016-845 9230 (Godwin) or e-mail

Here, you may use LIHING to cook with chicken and called it a drunken chicken (Sup Manuk Ayam)

Usually, this is a traditional soup for ladies in confinement, and normally a “village chicken,” (Ayam Kampung), is used. A regular chicken will do the trick, too. This drunken chicken soup is also suitable for any occasion as well, especially in cold or rainy season…:to warm up your body!

1/2 Village Chicken (Chop into medium size pieces)
290ml/1 bottle lihing (rice wine)
100gm fungus - dry fungus soaked in water for 15-20 minute
80gm Ginger
290 ml water (I prefer more dilute but if you prefer stronger taste, add 150 ml water)
2 tbs oil
1 tsp salt
1/2tsp ajinamoto/ MSG


1.Heat up the oil and add ginger into the frying pan or pot.
2. Add the chicken and then stir on high fire until fragrant, then add one 1bottle of sweet lihing.
3. Add the soaked fungus into the frying pan/pot and bring to boil and let the alcohol evaporate.
4. Then add enough water to cover the chicken and ginger to yield soup.
5.Simmer for ten minutes, taste and add salt and MSG/ajinamoto if needed. Let simmer for another five minutes or so, serve.      
Tips : The soup can be heated the next day, it will only become tastier; one can add a glass of lihing just prior to serving.
