White radish with beef balls (using an old rice cooker with congee function)

This boiled white radish with beef balls is simple to make. I decided to use an old-style rice cooker with a congee function. I did not add any seasoning. Just simple and natural. Boiling food is very healthy. The beef balls can be bought at a Chinese supermarket. It comes in different flavours. I choose the beef balls because it is my favorite kind.
To prepare the white radish, I cut it in half. Rinse the white radish. Peel the skin and put the knife at an angle. While turning, cut the white radish into pieces. I place all the white radish into a mixing bowl. Then I took some beef ball from the freeze, put as many in a strainer and rinse it and put it aside.
All you need is the white radish because they take longer to cook. It takes about 20-30 minutes. To know if it’s tender. Insert a large toothpick. If it goes through, that means it is ready. If it’s not, you will need to cook it a bit longer. You can turn it to the congee function and cook for 15 minutes to be sure it is simmering to tender. When it is all cooked, I use a skimmer spoon and scoop up all the white radish into a plate.
I poured the beef balls onto the rice cooker and boiled until the water started to boil and the beef ball expands and flows on the top, that is when you know it is ready. If you want to make sure it is ready, cook it for another 1-2 minutes. Use a skimmer spoon and scoop up all the beef balls into the same plate and mix it.
Kids and adults would love this white radish with beef balls. It’s healthy and very delicious. Since it is coming from boiling water. I like it a lot. You can have these for lunch or dinner. The best combination that goes well with this dish is rice or noodles. The boiling water that is left in the rice cooker, you can drink it as a soup or use it as a soup base for noodles.
