No one knows the name of this dish
many people cook it
all agree it is yummy

The first time I tasted it
was at my sister-in-law Yvonne's place

She is a good cook

I found it to be really yummy
so I asked for her recipe
here I am
presenting my first attempt 
 I name it
'Preserved Bean Crunch'

The ingredients are simple
the combination of them 
make it extremely yummy
served with steamed rice

1/2 cup ikan bilis, fried until crispy
1/2 cup minced pork
3 green chilli, cut into chunks
2 red chilli, cut into chunks
1 medium size onion, sliced
1/2 Tbsp preserve bean (tau Cheong)
1/4 tsp dark soya sauce
1/3 cup water (adjust)
1 Tbsp oil
pepper & sugar to taste
thickener: 1/2 Tbsp corn starch +1 Tbsp water

measure of ingredients is not fixed 
as it depends on the amount available 
and own preference

1) heat up oil in a wok
2) fry onions until fragrant, add minced pork & continue frying
3) add dark soya sauce, preserved beans & water
4) when cooked through, stir in ikan nilis & cut chilli
5) add seasoning to taste, stir in thickener to adjust consistency
6) dish up & serve

1) Amount of water to add depends on how much sauce you like.
2) if you keep the sauce thick, the ikan bilis will remain crunch longer
3) salt is not added because tau cheong is salty, may adjust accordingly
