Origin of Braised Pork and Fermented Mustard Green

In my family, like most Malaysian Chinese households. Likewise, this Braised Pork and Fermented Mustard Green is also one of our Chinese home cooking dish. Normally cooked with leftovers like roasted pork and roasted duck. Leftover meats from special occasions like Chinese New Year, weddings and milestone birthdays. They cook these leftover meat together with pickled/salted mustard green (hum choy) and dried small red chillis. Resulting in a very appetizing hot and sour dish. Another popular Chinese variation includes using pork belly for soy sauce braises. Moreover, they often consume fermented or pickled mustard greens as a condiment or side dish. They also use fermented or pickled mustard greens in soups, stews, stir-fries, and added to rice or noodles.

About Fermented Mustard Greens

Frequently, they use both fermented and pickled mustard greens in many Asian and Chinese cuisines. Likewise, they also call them “hum choy” in Cantonese and “suan cai” in Mandarin. They make the homemade varieties of mustard greens by fermenting in salt water. Giving a sour taste from the lactic acid. Besides, homemade mustard greens have more health benefits due to the presence of natural probiotics from the fermentation process.

Whereas, they normally pickle the mustard greens for commercially available salted or pickled mustard green. Preserved in vinegar and salt brine, cooked in high heat and pressure. Resulting in a sweeter taste but has no probiotics benefits required for a healthy gut. I love to make my own home made fermented and pickled vegetables. Remember to check out my recipe on how to make fermented mustard green.
