Yummy Char Siu Congee

Really tasty dinner tonight…was a little bit torn on what to do and make and too tired to put much effort into it, so opted for a lovely bowl of Char Siu Congee made in the rice cooker.

Simple to to make, popped in some cha siu pork with shiitake mushrooms, corn, soya beans and some asparagus topped at the end with some spring onions… what could be easier.

All you have to do is wash the rice, pop it in the rice cooker (i went for 1.5 cups of rice and 8 cups of liquid).  Rather than going with all water I also used the water the shiitake had been soaking in and a good glug of soya sauce and ponzu.

Everything went in the Cook Japan rice cooker, stick it on “congee” mode and 45 minutes later it was all set to eat…delicious!  Easy to make, really tasty and great for when you can't face slaving over a hot stove
