Taiwanese Minced Pork Sauce Over Rice

Although I am not Taiwanese myself but I do have a lot of Taiwanese friends and one of our favourite Taiwanese dishes is Minced Pork Sauce. When served with rice or noodle it is amazingly delicious. It is also quite simple to make. I usually make a big portion and so there is enough for everyone in the family to bring for lunch.
