One meal three ways: Sang choy bow

One meal, three ways aims to make life simpler by creating a complete family meal that is suitable for a baby, toddler and an adult. With a bit of planning, most meals can cater to the whole family, without compromising on taste, nutrition or your precious time. We love a traditional Sang choy cow in this house, but due to not knowing what was inside, we couldn’t offer it to the kids. This Sang choy bow recipe was my attempt at making it at home for us all to enjoy, and we just love it! If you love our one meal, three ways recipes you will also enjoy our eBook Family Foodie or hard copy bestselling books.

Nutrition Note: While very delicious, Asian style meals can be very high in salt, be sure to look out for no added salt or reduced salt sauce varieties to use in your cooking.

  • 3 tbsp peanut oil
  • 600g pork and veal mince
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp salt-reduced soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 6 lettuce cups
  • ¼ cup cooked couscous (baby portion only)
  • ¼ cup shallots to garnish (adult only)
  • finely chopped chilli to garnish (adult only)
  • extra herbs; coriander, parsley, mint (optional)


Step 1

Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring occasionally for a few minutes or until the mince broken up into fine pieces and cooked through. Remove from the frying pan and set aside. -

Step 2

Add the remaining oil to the frying pan and reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and carrot and sauté for two minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a further two minutes. -

Step 3

Add the pork back into the frying pan along with the soy and oyster sauces. Cook for a few minutes stirring the mixture to evenly coat with sauce.

Step 4

Stop at step 3 (before adding the sauces as these are not appropriate for babies). Combine two tablespoons of mince and one teaspoon of onion, garlic and ginger mixture with ¼ cup cooked couscous. Finely chop or pulse in a blender until all ingredients are of a texture appropriate for your baby.

Step 5

Spoon ¼ cup of pork mixture into a lettuce cup. Gently roll the mixture in the lettuce until you have a ‘spring roll’ shape. Serve. -

Step 6

Spoon mixture evenly into four lettuce cups and top with shallots, chilli and any extra herbs. -

Step 7

Tip: you can bulk up this meal by mixing through some cooked couscous or brown rice at step three.



Step 8

Storage:place the pork mixture into a freezer bag or plastic container and store in the freezer. -
