add 1 cup of rice to 12 cups of water and boil for about 45 minutes until rice starts to cook and soften

add 2 tablespoon of tung choy and beef bouillon cube to the cooking rice and boil for at lease another 45 minutes til the rice has broken down to almost a mash (take care to add water so that the rice doesn't get hard)

once the rice has reached your preferred consistency, use 2 spoons to scoop and shape the mince beef into a small ball and drop into the boiling rice

add half of the spring onions and let it cook for another 10 minutes

dish out and garnish with the remaining spring onions and sliced ginger, with a few drops of sesame oil and light soya sauce
