"3 Dishes + 1 Soup"
If you were to watch Channel 8's variety show, you would probably be familiar with this show called 《三菜一汤》? Basically, the guest artists of the week will have to compete to cook up a "3dishes+1soup" within a given period of time.
With a similar concept, Lee Kum Kee is hosting a "Menu-Oriented Sauces Blogger Competition" in which bloggers would have to prepare 3 dishes + 1 soup using Lee Kum Kee's Menu-Oriented Sauces and to share on our social media platforms (Instagram & Facebook)
So here is my take of the competition! I've cooked them #injust30minutes! To be more specific, 29 min and 33 sec! Yup, I timed myself. ^^
So how do you like my simple, homey "3dishes+1soup" dinner?

A recent survey shows that 80% of Singaporeans prefer to eat at home than dining out.
However, not everyone is confident enough to cook or even have the time to cook.
This is when Lee Kum Kee's ready-made sauces, menu-oriented sauces, come in handy! All it takes is only 30 minutes (tested and proven) to cook up a scrumptious 4-course meal at home!
To thank everyone for your support, I'll be sharing my recipes for each of the dishes I've cooked using Lee Kum Lee's products over the next few posts. :)
1. Korean Minced Pork with Silken Tofu and assorted Vegetables
2. Pan-fried Dory Fish Fillet with Onions
3. Tomato Garlic Cuttlefish with assorted Vegetables
4. Fishball and Vegetable Soup
So the first recipe that I will be sharing is this simple but comfy soup, which should be the first to be cooked and the last to be completed. This is to allow maximum time for the soup to simmer to enhance the overall taste! ^^
Lee Kum Kee Soup Base for Black Pepper and Pork Bone Hot Pot
Vegetable of your choice (Lettuce and Japanese cucumber for me)
Basic Hot Pot ingredients of your choice (Hotdog, crabstick, fried beancurd skin and fishball for me)
1 litre of water
1. Bring the pot of water to boil. Add in the vegetables of choice and hot pot ingredients.
2. When the soup boils again, lower the heat and allow it to simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Taste the soup, add in Lee Kum Kee Soup Base for Black Pepper and Pork Bone Hot Pot a little at a time. Stir and taste to obtain the level of saltiness that you desire. (I did not use the entire packet, just 2 tbsp could do the magic! ^^ You can save the rest for future use. Do seal the packet again and store in the fridge though.)
4. Crack in an egg and let it simmer for another minute before serving.
This is my favourite type of soup to cook whenever I'm pressing for time! It can never get boring because of the versatility of the soup. Basically it's a mini hot pot anytime! Just play around with the different types of ingredients to use, and a packet of Lee Kum Kee Soup Base for Black Pepper and Pork Bone Hot Pot would really last you a good time!
Hope you would like this simple recipe that I've just shared. The rest of the 3 dishes would be coming up next. Stay tune and remember to 'like + share' my photo tagged with #leekumkeemos #injust30minutes on Instagram and Facebook ya?
