Cantonese Lean Pork Congee
Reviews:
February 16, 2010

I think the issue people are having with the water-rice ratio is the result of the author using a different definition of a "cup" of rice. Chinese people use the little cup that comes with a rice cooker to measure rice, roughly pronounced as "muk" and is maybe half (or even less) than a standard measurement cup. Congee is generally made with a water to rice ratio of around 10:1. possibly greater. This recipe implies 5:1 which is far too little water. Hope this helps.
