This is a Chinese chrysanthemum with pork. It is very delicious and simple to make. I decided to put some pork with the chrysanthemum in the bowl to brighten up the colour in the bowl. Having pork with the chrysanthemum vegetable, you can have more variety to eat. This time I boiled them in a large pan together. At the bottom I have the recipe on how to prepare and boil the Chinese chrysanthemum with pork. Chinese chrysanthemum can be found at a Chinese supermarket.
Kids and adults would love this dish. It is very delicious, and I like this dish a lot. The perfect combination that goes well with boiled Chinese chrysanthemum with pork would be noddles or rice. Whatever you choose as your desire. I prefer eating it with rice because It will taste so good mixing in with the rice. If you prefer noodles, the water that is left in the large pan, you can use it for a base soup noodles. This is a very good dish to make. If you have no idea what to cook, you can consider making this bowl. Try the recipe and enjoy.
