Healthy Lean Pork Floss

Pork floss is a familiar and popular food with Singaporeans but is not usually considered a healthy food due to its high salt, sugar and fat content. In this recipe, I used lean pork, low salt soya sauce and nutritious canola oil are used. A plus point in making pork floss from scratch is knowing that there are no unnecessary preservatives added. If you prefer, reduce the amount of sugar and salt for an even healthier pork floss for your little ones.

Preparation and cooking time: 1 hour
Makes about 1 cup

  • 300g lean pork
  • 1½ cups water
  •  ½ tablespoon low salt light soya sauce
  •  ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • Wash and cut pork into cubes. Cut away the white fatty streaks and discard.
  • Cook water in a small pot over stove. When water is boiling, add pork and reduce to medium heat. Cook covered for about half an hour.
  • Switch off heat and remove pork from stock. Leave behind about 5 tablespoons of stock in the pot and discard the rest.
  • Add soya sauce, salt and sugar to the stock and stir well to mix.
  • Grind pork in a food processor till fine. Add to stock and mix. Stirfry pork to in medium heat till dry.
  • Add cooking oil and stir fry the pork till it turns golden brown. Do not raise the cooking temperature to hasten the process as the pork burns very fast at this stage.
  • Allow pork floss to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
