This is basically wonton soup without the wrapping. I also cooked some hairy melon in some chicken stock. I know Mum makes her stock from scratch but life's too short for all that mucking around.

  • 500 g Pork mince
  • 30 mL Black bean sauce
  • 500 g Raw banana prawns
  • 30 mL Soy sauce
  • 10 mL Sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon White Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper
  • cup Scotch whisky
  • 2 tablespoons Cornflour
  • 2 Eggs beated
  • 1 Spring onion sliced finely

  1. Remove the skin from the pork rashers, cut into pieces and then mince in my Tupperware® FusionMaster mincer

    You can use a food processor or an old-fashioned mincer if you have one

  2. Peel the raw banana prawns and mince some with the pork and cut into small pieces the rest

    Keep the prawn heads and shells for stock or put them in a communal rubbish bin so all your neighbours can share the joy of prawn waste in the warm weather for days on end

  3. Wash and peel your hairy melon and then slice

    Handle your hairy melon gently

  4. Slap the pork into a bowl a few times (my Mum reckons this makes a difference)

    If you're not used to slapping your pork, ask someone who does it regularly

  5. Combine everything (including the whisky) and slap around again (again Mum reckons this is helpful)

    Yep, keep slapping your pork
