Nasi Bakmoy (Minced Meat and Tofu over Rice)

Nasi Bakmoy is one of those recipes I learned by observation and taste. I was a teenager and saw a lady at church cook this dish. Everyone was raving about how good it was so I looked at the main ingredients and started making my own version. I've made this dish countless times since then. Although my version may not be as accurate as the original, I'm happy to say that so far, it's been a hit with family and friends. It's a really simple dish and it makes a great topping for porridge, too.


1 lb. ground pork or chicken
1 pkg. tofu (cut into small cubes)
1/4 C. dried shrimp (coarsely chopped)
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. oyster sauce
2 T. fish sauce
1/4 C. sweet soy sauce
1 t. pepper
1 T. vegetable oil
2 T. sesame oil


Fried shallots
Sliced green onions


Chicken stock
Sliced green onions
Minced garlic
Chopped celery
Salt and pepper

Cooking instruction:

1. Heat vegetable and sesame oil in a large pan. Add garlic. Once the garlic start to turn light brown, add the ground meat and dried shrimp and cook until almost done.

2. Add the cubed tofu into the mixture.

3. Stir in oyster sauce, fish sauce, sweet soy sauce, and pepper.

4. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes to let all the flavors seep in.
5. Serve over white rice and top with sliced green onions and fried shallots. You can pour the broth over the dish or serve it on the side. Enjoy!
