Pork and Century Egg Rice Congee

Pork and Century Egg Rice Congee – ingredients and method


  • 1 cup uncooked short-grain white rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cube pork bouillon cube
  • 2 cups char siu (Chinese roast pork), diced
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 preserved duck eggs (century eggs), peeled and diced


Step 1

Rinse the rice in several changes of cold water. Drain completely in a mesh strainer and place into a large pot. Stir the vegetable oil into the rice and set aside for 10 minutes.

Step 2

Stir 6 cups of water, the bouillon cube, char siu, and green onion into the rice. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 1 1/2 hours. Stir frequently as the rice cooks to help break the rice grains apart and keep it from burning on the bottom.

Step 3

Stir in the remaining 2 cups of water and the century egg. Continue cooking another 1 1/2 hours, stirring frequently until the congee reaches your desired consistency. The congee is ready when the individual grains of rice are no longer discernable and have thickened the soup.
