While the Pork Neck Bone and Pumpkin Soup is simmering away, Julie prepares her second dish which is Steamed Hairy Gourd Stuffed with Minced Pork. Hairy Gourd is another winter squash which is in season too.
Meanwhile, Vanessa prepared a simple fried rice with egg and green bean to accompany the Steamed Hairy Gourd.
- 4 hairy gourds, peel and cut into 1 inch round

- 3 green onions, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon white pepper

You have a great blog, very helpful for moms! Keep up your good work. I will bookmark your site.
I think you can open a restaurants with this. 🙂
BTW, can’t find your ‘About’ – want to know more about your blog, but couldn’t find more…
Do you know the chinese name for hairy gourd? I can’t figure out what kind of squash that is.
Hi Jacqueline, I think it’s call ‘Mao Gwa’ in Mandarin or ‘Jit Gwa’ in Cantonese.
I need to wait a few more months before it’s available in California, but I think I’ll try this recipe using tuna. Looks great. Thanks, Suanne!
From the picture they hairy gourd look so much like cucumber.. do you if i can substitute with cucumber?
Hi Cocoa, you can’t substitute the hairy gourd with cucumber because their texture is different. The hairy gourd becomes very tender after steaming.
There was a time my mom made this dish all the time when I was around 15… Thanks for the recipe and would need to try it when I could get the hairy gourd…
This is my first time on your blog… it’s fantastic! I’m a newly married ABC, and I’m trying to recreate all the dishes my mom and his mom (both Cantonese) make at home. The pictures are really helpful, thanks!!
Those are not hairy gourd…Those are cucumbers…
