Since stewed pork belly rice is so meaty and oily, I made this pickle to go along with it, at least wouldn't feel too heavy. I got the recipe from the same book of the stewed pork belly rice, so for sure it won't go wrong with the rice.
1 white cloth
2 cloves garlic
1 plastic bag
1 tsp salt
1 tsp mushroom flavor seasoning (substituted with 1 tbsp men shoyu)
2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp chili sauce (skipped)
- Wash cucumber, cut into thick chucks, rub with 1 tsp salt evenly, marinate for 20 minutes til cucumber sweat, use a piece of white cloth to squeeze out juice from cucumber.
- Skinned garlic, wash and chop.
- Mix all ingredients from Seasoning, water and garlic into cucumber, mix well. Pour cucumber mixture into a plastic bag, press out air from plastic bag, seal tight. Let cucumber marinate for 2 hours in fridge.
- Serve cold.
I skipped chili sauce cos little girl couldn't tahan (stand) even tiny bit of chili flavor. Yet she don fancy this marinated cucumber due to the garlic, however hubby & me just love it.
