One pot dish is very convenient indeed, I think I spend liked less than 30 minutes chalking up this dish. And all you need is probably some plain rice or congee to go along and that settles your one meal in a dash. I was reading an article recently on where Singaporeans spend the most $ on.. and the results you would probably have guessed, nothing less than food and all the eating out. Even if they are just hawker meals every day, but for 3 meals a day on a daily basis, the amount makes up a large portion of our expenditure as well ! So cooking your own somehow is still the most budget way to lower your spending, even if it meant the easiest of home cooked food.
And I suppose one pot dish is a very convenient way to prepare a meal, especially if it’s for a small group of one to two persons. You can basically chuck everything into a pot, add some seasonings, let it simmer and you are good to go. And with a pot that comprises of both poultry and vegetables, they make up a complete diet that’s just deliciously cater to your taste buds. It’s as easy as a pea.
So here’s my one pot dish of Roasted Pork & Bean Rolls
To spruce it up a little, I play around with the long beans and twirl them like a spiral coil to make it look a bit more interesting. Here’s a step by step on how that’s done.
You do need some thinner and smaller long beans to make this work, otherwise they will beak easily during coiling.
Something good about one pot dish is… you can always use the leftovers to prepare it, though I didn’t this time. The roast pork was from the extended family who bought a larger chunk of it and shared some with me. So I had it cooked into this dish while the rest of the veges are fresh ingredients cooked from scratch though.
