2 tablespoons soy sauce - mushroom
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup ground pork
1 pinch ground pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bitter melon
Cut both ends off from the bitter melon and slice it into 3-4 sections. Scoop out the seeds and the white fluff part. Be careful not to break the melon.
Mince garlic and mix it into the ground pork. Add salt and black pepper. Mix well. Stuff each section of the bitter melon with the pork. Do not over-stuff the melon. The melon seems to shrink more than the pork when it is all cooked.
Add 4-5 cup of water into a pot. Add the stuffed bitter melon and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Let it boil for half an hour. When the melon turns a little yellowy green and soft, it is ready. Serve hot with rice. This is a dish that tastes good today and better tomorrow
