27 Recipes – Sang Choy Bow

Sang Choy Bow

While grocery shopping the other day, I saw a cookbook there that looked rather interesting when I flicked through. I was inspired straight away to buy the ingredients to make this dish. It’s something I’ve only ever eaten once or twice before, but always liked it.

Sang Choy Bow Ingredients


500g pork mince
500g beef mince
5-6 mushrooms
1 capsicum
1 onion
3 cloves garlic

1/3 cup oyster sauce
250g bean sprouts

My Thoughts

I thought this was quite good! Next time, I might try using romaine lettuce leaves since these lettuce leaves didn’t really come off the lettuce too well and manged to tear. I found this easiest to eat if I broke of some of the lettuce and spooned meat on for individual bite sizes. Next time I might simmer it down a little more.

Michael’s Thoughts

Michael thought this was delicious and that no adjustments were needed at all. His only thought was to drain the sauce off this, and use it with rice to make a second meal from this
