Macanese Minchi, a Ground Beef Stir Fry (免治肉粒饭)
Minchi! A Macanese staple of marinated and fried ground pork and beef, together with rice, potatoes and a fried egg. For the unaware, the Macanese people are an ethnic group that’re (mostly) mixed Portuguese and Chinese, though the term can also refer to Macao Cantonese that were Portugese catholic by religion and education.
Their food is… fascinating. In a world where Western chefs are taking crab cakes and slapping them into Guabao buns… Macanese cuisine can provide a glimpse, I think, into what a true blend of Chinese and Western cuisines can actually kind of look like.

Learn how to cook real deal, authentic Chinese food! We post recipes every Tuesday (unless we happen to be travelling) 🙂
We’re Steph and Chris – a food-obsessed couple that lives in Shenzhen, China. Steph is from Guangzhou and loves cooking food from throughout China – you’ll usually be watching her behind the wok. Chris is a long-term expat from America that’s been living in China and loving it for the last nine years – you’ll be listening to his explanations and recipe details, and doing some cooking at times as well.
This channel is all about learning how to cook the same taste that you’d get in China. Our goal for each video is to give you a recipe that would at least get you close to what’s made by some of our favorite restaurants here. Because of that, our recipes are no-holds-barred Chinese when it comes to style and ingredients – but feel free to ask for tips about adaptations and sourcing too!
