PauPau Oyster Porridge

Sometimes it is good to have a light meal such as porridge, especially during a hot day. Porridge is not only high in fiber, but also rich in nutrition. You can actually cook the porridge in a soup pot or slow cooker, but I prefer soup pot as it is much faster than slow cooker.

Today I am going to share with you "Oyster Porridge" recipe which is quite nourishing and delicious. Hope that you will enjoy it too!

50 gm dried oyster (soak overnight and reserved the oyster water)
6 ~ 8 red dates (remove the pit)
Fresh shitake mushroom (remove the stem and sliced the mushroom) 
400gm pork ribs
1 cup brown rice
5 tablespoon millet
6 ~ 8 tablespoon oat
1/2 teaspoon salt
Optional: dried shrimp

Ingredients: (to marinate for about 20 minutes)
Sliced fish 
Light soy sauce (as per taste)
Black pepper powder (depend on how peppery you like)

Wash and soak the dried oyster in water for overnight. (reserved the oyster water)
If you are using dried mushroom, wash and soak the mushroom in water for overnight. (reserved the mushroom water) 
Wash once and soak the brown rice in water for about 20 minutes.
Fill water in the the pot and bring it to boil.
Wash and rinse off the excess water of the pork ribs.
Add in pork ribs in the boiling water and cook for about 10 minutes in high heat. 
Add in seedless red date, turn to medium heat and cook for about 20 minutes. 
Optional: Add some water in the broth whenever you feel it is dry out.
Add in soaked brown rice, millet and oat in the broth. Stir well and continue to cook for about 20 minutes. 
Add in sliced mushroom, oyster and oyster water (mushroom water if got), continue to cook at low heat until the porridge is starchy enough (or until the thick consistency that you prefer).  
Add in the marinated fish sliced into the porridge.
Turn off the heat once the fish is cooked.
Add in salt (to taste) and stir well.
Served it while hot.
