Meat Patties and Preserved Cucumbers
Preserved cucumbers are usually served with congee but they also work as well with meat patties. It is really easy to make these meat patties with little ingredients used and only about 8 minutes of frying or on your bbq grill. You can serve these meat patties as snack or a side dish meal with hot rice or place it inside a toasted bun with a slice of cheese, tomatoes and mayonnaise as a burger.
