Beef & Pumpkin Porridge

For this porridge, I specifically mention beef because it is better to use beef for the overall flavour. You can use other meat but the effect will not be the same. The quantity for pumpkin is just a rough approximation. You can add whatever amount you fancy.


1½ cups stock

½ cup rice

½ onion, finely chopped

2-4 tbsp minced beef

1tbsp frozen peas (thawed)

5-6pcs pumpkin of about 1″ cube size



Stir fry onions in a little oil for about 5 minutes. Add peas and minced beef and fry a while longer.

Cook stir-fried onion/pea/beef and the rice and pumpkin together in stock until rice is cooked to porridge-state, and pumpkin is soft.

Using a fork, mash the pumpkin and stir porridge thoroughly.
