My Favorite Healthy Breakfast, Dim Sum Porridge

If you are craving the porridge you get from dimsum, minus the MSG, this will be the quickest porridge you ever make. Restaurants usually use century eggs for their congee but I will use our home made salted egg this time. You can easily just replace the salted eggs with the century eggs to create the flavor you like. It’s easily adjustable. Slaving over the stove is no fun. This lazy cooking recipe allows you to be multifunctional. For example, sit on sofa and bing on Netflix while this is cooking. This recipe will become your regular goto meal.

No cooking meal prep

Salted egg or century egg pork porridge is a great healthy breakfast. You will be full of energy after you eat this. If you have no ideas for lunch or dinner, it’s an easy set and forget meal that you can have anytime. There’s absolutely no meal prep needed, the quick version will only take 5 minutes to put together. You can decide on a whim when to cook it. The porridge will self cook and be ready in about 1 hr. It’s so quick, you’ll have a lot of extra time to do whatever your heart desires while this cooker rice recipe simmers away.

This cooker rice recipe has 3 ingredients

(Makes 6 to 8 bowls)

  • 10 oz lean pork
  • 2 cups of rice
  • 2 salted eggs or 2 century old eggs
  • 1:6 cup – rice to water ratio

Rice Cooker

You’ll need a rice cooker with a “porridge/congee” function or “steam” function. I am using the Buffalo smart cooker, which has a “white rice”, “brown rice”, “porridge”, “steam”, “soup”, and “cake” functions. I’ve had mine in over 10 years. I love using it. I can cook a whole meal of rice, stew or soup, and veggies in 5 minutes. The Buffalo smart cooker I have is no longer available but I see a new version on Amazon. It has many more functions and healthy features then my old Buffalo smart cooker.


Rice cookers are a great way to cook healthy meal. This cooker has a 24hr preset function so you can set it up before you leave the house and come back to a fully cooked hot meal. You can preset to cook porridge for breakfast or just about anything ahead of time so you’ll always have something warm and good to eat when it’s meal time.

Cooking with Multiple Rice Cookers

Don’t throw out your old rice cookers if you get an upgraded smart cooker. It will come in handy when you want to cook multiple dishes at the same time. Old rice cookers are super efficient steamers. You just add water and press a button and the dish will be ready after all the water evaporates. I’ve steamed eggs, made oatmeal and stack cooked whole meals with old junky rice cookers. With a few cookers around you can have a huge meal ready enough for a big family when you come home from work. Rice cookers are not only restricted to cooking rice.
