Here’s yet another one sent by Colin from the east coast – thanks again! This is a Chinese roasted pork variety from a well known brand. Here’s a little history from Wikipedia –

The company was founded in Tianjin by the Wei brothers from Changhua County, Taiwan in 1991.[5] It was listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 1996.[6]

  • It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ting Hsin International Group.[7][8]
  • In March 2011, Unilever was fined 2 million Yuan for the distribution of information about future price hikes and Tingyi was given a warning about publicly discussing their price increases.[9]
  • In June 2011, Master Kong[10] was found by market research firm TNS to be the second most valued brand in China.[11]
  • As of 2013, its main competitors are Want Want China and Uni-President.[1]

I’ve seen in the news that people are under the impression that Master Kong has gone out of business, but this is n’t the case – they’ve just closed their Taiwanese factory. Let’s give this one a try!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add package contents to 500ml boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Stir and enjoy! NOTE: this is the method I’ve used for pretty much all of the Master Kong/Kang Shi Fu variants as the package never have instructions for a cooking method; not even this one in English.
