Bak Chor Mee Recipe

This is a recipe for one of Singapore’s most popular and iconic hawker dishbak chor mee” aka minced meat noodles (肉脞面). While I have featured the recipe for fish ball bak chor mee, this is the other version with stewed mushrooms, minced pork, pork ball, pork liver and sliced pork.

As compared to the fish ball version, there is slightly more work for this one as there are more variety of ingredients. The stewed mushrooms also take some time to stew, though the good news is that they keep well in the fridge for many days, and serve well as toppings for almost any soup noodle dish.

I love both the fish ball and mushrooms versions equally and it totally depends on my mood that day. Since I used “mee pok” aka flat egg noodles the last time, I used “mee kia” aka thin egg noodles this time round.

The home-cooked version means you can swop around the ingredients based on your time and ingredient availability. For instance, you can do fish balls with stewed mushrooms, omit the liver or even try the soup version of bak chor mee.

    Where to buy the mee pok / mee kia?

      Mee pok – from NTUC or Cold Storage (the Fortune brand). I can’t specially find “mee kia” so I used HK style Cantonese noodles (can also use as wonton noodles). They are at the fridge noodles section.

    Yummy! One of my favourite hawker delights!

    Very authentic esp. with the three different kinds(parts) of meat – pork mince, pork slice and port liver. You really make that effort :)

    A yummy favourite among Singaporeans.

    What’s the reason for corn starch added to the meat seasoning? Also, can we use normal sugar instead of rock sugar for the stewing of mushrooms? Thanks

      it makes the meat (esp the minced) soft and tender. also binds the seasonings. yes, can substitute with normal sugar.

    Your bak chor mee reminds me of my childhood supper at this famous stall at Selegie!

    Currently im in taiwan. Couldnt find dark soya sauce in local market. Is there any replacement for the dark soya sauce?


    • wiffy replied: — June 25th, 2014 @ 11:52 am

      I believe in Taiwan they call it 老抽? Taiwanese love braised foods (滷味) so it is unlikely not to be able to find dark soya sauce there. You can check out the local supermarkets like WellCome. Or look for an international brand where the label come with corresponding English words (e.g. Kikkoman or LKK).
