Homemade Meat Floss (肉松)

Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root)

Ingredients:  (Made 220g pork floss)

550g pork neck, cut into 4 cm cubes, blanched with boiling water
1 slice Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root)
2 slices ginger
1 1/2 cup water 
2 tbsp oil

Seasonings: ( Adjust according to personal preference)
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
Salt & pepper, to taste
3 tbsp raw sugar, or to taste
dash of five-spiced powder

  • Cook the meat with until tender (add more water if it dries up).  Drain well and discard the dang gui.
  • Put the cooled cooked meat into a resealable plastic bag and using a pestle, flatten the meat.  
  • Transfer the meat onto a plate and use two forks to tease them apart.  Then put the meat into a wok together with 1 tbsp of oil and mix well.  Add in all the seasonings and fry over low heat until meat is completely dry and flossy (about 45 minutes).  Add the remaining oil and continue to fry for another 2 minutes.
  • Cool the meat floss and store in air-tight containers


  1. Hi Veronica! I am not a fan of meat floss but still this post has enlightened me on how meat floss is made. They look so light and fluffy. Amazing!

  2. Wow, impressive that you made this. Eventhough it might not be same tasty taste as the store bought, but I am sure making this at home is definitely is the healthy version.

    1. Hi Mel, you are right, homemade meat floss might just lack the flavoursome taste in the store-bought meat floss; however making your own meat floss affords you the peace of mind that goes along with having control over the ingredients you add, agree?

  3. Veronica...this is definitely so healthy, homemade & no preservatives... I bet these meat floss is delish..wish i can try some.. ;)

  4. you could have fooled me.. thought these are store bought.... very nicely done

  5. Looks yum, Veronica! I like this to go with plain buns!

  6. You know this sounds silly but I never thought that you could make this at home! :o

    1. Last time I had the same thought too, thought it was impossible to make this at home.

  7. This looks waaaaaaaaaaaay better than the store-bought! Excellent!

  8. Your meat floss looks exactly like those in store!

    1. I take your comment as a compliment, heehee. Thanks.
