How to cook Black Bean Congee

Weight Loss Black Bean Congee


150g rice
100g pork loin cutlet
50g black bean


Wash and soak black beans in a large bowl of water overnight or approximately 6-8 hours. Use a sharp knife to remove the thin layer fat of the pork loin cutlet and chop it like how I did in Weight Loss Pork Congee Recipe. However, it does not need to be marinated in this recipe. Bring water to a boil. Add rice, black beans and cook until tender. Pre-soaked black beans usually take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to cook. Routinely check the water level during cooking, if you run out of water, the congee will start to burn and acquire a burnt, smoky taste. Add pork and cook for another 5 minutes then serve!
