You Were Bought At A Price

 While waiting for my home made char siew braising in the wok, I cooked for myself a simple lunch.
皮蛋廋肉粥 Lean Meat and Century Egg Oat Porridge.

This is not only quick and tasty, but healthy because it is cooked with oat instead of rice! This recipe was inspired by Ellena of Cuisine paradise who made this back in 2009. I modified her recipe to 1 serve.

This porridge, similar to Cantonese style and texture, is so tasty that it is hard to tell it is made from oat. Cook this for your friends and family, and don't tell them it is oat, they will never know they are eating something that is good for them, and that will keep them full till the next meal!

Lean Meat and Century Egg Oat Porridge
serve 1

3 tbsp of quick cooking oat
20gm of mince pork
1 roughly chopped century egg
1/2 beaten egg, lightly beaten
200ml chicken stock (low sodium) + 150ml water
Chopped spring onion and conriader, to garnish
Pan fried shredded ginger, to garnish
pepper to taste


  • Marinate the mince meat with some light soy sauce, pepper and sesame oil.
  • Pan fried shredded ginger till brown, remove ginger slices. 
  • Fry the mince pork with the ginger oil and give it a quick stir until the meat are well separated and cook through.
  • In a saucepan, boil the chicken and water together. When it comes to a boil, add in the oat. When the oat is boiling, add in the cooked meat and chopped century eggs. Remove from stove
  • Drizzle in the beaten egg and give it a quick stir. Serve in the bowl and garnish with spring onion, coriander and ginger.

  1. What a healthy and quick meal with oats as main course. Going to give this a try. Thanks for linking!

    1. hi Vivian, Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed it.

  2. Hi Lian,
    Your oats porridge indeed looks like rice porridge but a more fibre and healthy version.
    Would cook this for my kids!

  3. Interesting using oats to make Chinese-style porridge. Sounds yummy!

    1. Hi Yen, it is yummy! Maybe your little ones will like it?

  4. Love your Godly messages. Reminds us who may have forgotten.

    Oatmeal and porridges with oats are something I always do for my little one. But it never occurred to me that I can drizzle beaten egg into it, that would make it extra smooth and creamy, wouldn't it? I will be trying it out tonight :)

  5. Lian, many years ago my mum told me that an old family friend cooks oats with meatballs. I thought that was interesting but never attempted it. Now that I see you and Jennifer do savoury oatmeal porridge, I am really motivated to try it!

  6. Hi Phong Hong, Try this! It took me a long time to want to cook this too!, and it takes only minutes to cook it.

  7. Hi Lian,
    I love century egg porridge with lean meat. I used to ask my mum to cook for me whenever I'm not working. I must try this because I have not eaten Century Egg Oats Porridge before.
