Sneak Preview : Mee Rebus


Mee Rebus

Mee Rebus 5

A sneak preview at the Mee Rebus which I will be bringing to a potluck gathering initiated by Pei Lin of Dodol & Mochi. This is my first attempt at making Mee Rebus and I've decided to make use of a new recipe which I had picked up at Chef Keong's class at Chef Cooking Studio last month. This potluck session presents the  perfect occasion for me to test the recipe.
Different from standard  Mee Rebus recipes which usually calls for mashed potatoes to make up the thick starchy gravy, this recipe cuts back on the quantity of pototoes and uses Honey Dew Melon and Pineapple instead. Hence, the overall meal feels less starchy and less heavy on the stomach.

This is the pre-test and I thought it was pretty successful. After the photo shoots, I heated up the gravy again and tried cutting it with more water to reduce the viscosity. That got even better!

I shan't publish the recipe as it shall be unfair to Chef Cooking Studio but all you resourceful bloggers out there - I am sure you will be able to find many basic mee rebus recipes on the blogosphere. This will give you a good starting point to tweak the recipe.

Sneak Preview Over! Cheers!

It's interesting to note that this recipe uses honeydew and pineapple. My sis made mee rebus before and she used sweet potatoes. Good to know there's another way around it ;)

From the way you described the gravy using fruits it sound so much healthier than the sweet potatoes kind. I have to keep that in mind if I want to make this. Hope you have a good time getting together with out bloggers.

Ooh it looks FABULOUS shirley. I'm not a big mee rebus person but now i want some!

Passionate About Baking said...

Shirley,
Your mee rebus is so nice. The sauce is not so thick until so "ji larh", unlike those outside. The gravy sure is healthy when you mentioned it's made of pineapple and cantalope. Wish there was enough sauce for us to "tabao". Your portioning was truly just enough! :) Thanks for sharing this lovely food with us.

I have never ever had this before. but it looks yum.

btw, recipes are not copy writed, also, if u are giving em full credit its not a problem. very considerate of u :)

Jess @ Bakericious said...

Shirley, I ate your mee rebus as my 1st dish even though not a mee rebus fan but I ve been wanting to try it since seeing your post. My decision was so right, the mee rebus was so delicious. The sauce tasted thick but light at the sametime, not as jelat as those selling in store.

Shirley @ Kokken69 said...

:) Thanks, Jess. Glad you liked it!
