    Marinate the minced pork with 1 tsp corn flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1/4 tsp sesame oil.

    Step 3

    Mix well. Add some water (about 2-3 tbsp) to make it more sticky.

    Step 4

    Cut the pork loin into bite size. Marinate it with 1 tsp cornstarch, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1/4 tsp sesame oil.

    Let the pork marinate for at least 30 minutes.

    Step 6

    I bought this pork ball from the supermarket.

    Prepare your fav green vegetable. I go with baby choy sum. You can choose bak choy, baby kai lan etc etc.

    Step 14

    Heat the pan and lay all the lard on top.

    Step 15

    Careful with the oil splashing everywhere. Got this from Ikea. Does help.

    As you can see the oil start piling up. Once it turn golden yellow turn off the heat as it will continue cooking for awhile.

    Press the minced pork with the back of the spoon.

    Step 22

    Scoop a small bite size and drop it in.

    Step 23

    It doesn't have to be a perfect shape.

    Step 24

    In a separate bowl, boil a pot of water.
