Every once in a while, eating something that comes out of a can is not the end of the world. Quite the contrary with a select few cans that can ONLY be found at Asian Grocers. I grew up eating rice porridge – whenever I’m sick and unwell, my mom or dad would make me a bowl of porridge. Sometimes it’s just plain porridge with salted egg or century egg. Other times I get a lovely bowl of “bak moi” or pork porridge. Either way, a good bowl of porridge can be the ultimate comfort food!
Which is why I’d like to share this product with my readers – Gu Long Stewed Pork Slices – available at most Asian Grocers in Australia and supermarkets everywhere in Malaysia.
To cook plain rice porridge, just boil 1 cup of white rice in 6 cups of water until rice is soft and forms a smooth, creamy porridge. Serve porridge in a bowl. Remove half of the contents of the Stewed Pork Slices can and heat in a separate bowl for 1 min in the microwave. Top the heated pork slices (and its juices for flavor) on top of the porridge and sprinkle chopped spring onions. Enjoy while it’s hot!

I am so happy to have found you!
I so wish we had a good Asian Food Grocer nearby! This dish looks amazing, and we'll for sure seek out the pork you reference here!
I used to eat congee every morning for breakfast when I was in BKK… I sorely miss that starchy goodness with all the toppings. I never seem to make it taste the way it did there.
I love this with fermented soy beans and tofu cubes out of a jar, also with pickled “lettuce” (it's not really lettuce, just a mis-translation I think) out of a jar. I tried the Gu Long pork as you suggested, and it's so delicious but also terribly fatty. I will have to keep it as a rare treat.
