Banana Flower Pork Stew ( Gang Hou Pee )


This delicious rib stew is made with banana flowers as the main vegetable. Banana flowers are ideal for stews as they are fibrous and hold their texture during cooking, allowing the ribs to be cooked to soft without the vegetable part becoming mushy. These flowers are a good source of fiber, but you can substitute other fibrous vegetables (e.g. leeks) .

2 Banana Flowers
10 Pork Ribs
1 Tablespoon Red Curry Paste
1 Tablespoon Shrimp Paste
2 Tablespoons Chopped Dill for Garnish

1. Mix the shrimp paste, red curry paste and fry in a pan to bring out the flavours.
2. Add 500ml water, add the ribs, and boil until cooked.
3. Chop the banana flowers into small pieces and add to the pan.
4. Simmer slowly until the flowers are soft, by which time the meat should be very tender.
5. Garnish with dill.
