Steamed Pork Ribs with Black Bean Sauce Recipe

Steamed Pork Ribs is always one of my must-order dim sum items as I love the salty flavour of the fermented black beans and the tender pork ribs that are always served steaming hot. However, there is one thing that I don’t appreciate about the dish i.e. the pork ribs used are often too fatty. […]

Pork Tenderloin with Cranberry Sauce

The festive season is almost coming to an end as we prepare to welcome a brand new year in just over a day’s time. Oh my gosh, time really doesn’t wait for anyone, does it? 2015 has been a really rough year with few things positive. It’s filled with losses of loved ones, grief, illnesses, […]

Bak Kut Teh Recipe

Earlier this year, I went on a bak kut teh eat-venture and decided that this – Soon Soon Heng Bak Kut Teh @ Johor Bahru – was the best BKT I had. I’ve always preferred the Hokkien style of BKT that is darker in colour with the addition of dark soya sauce and it is […]

Grilled Pork Salad Recipe

Whenever I visited Bangkok, I would head to the streets to look for moo ping (grilled pork on skewers) which is a popular Thai street food eaten with sticky rice. It’s a little similar to our local satay except that the meat marinade is different and there is no peanut sauce for dipping. I was […]

Pork Ribs Curry Recipe

My maternal grandmother makes a fabulous dry chicken curry that doesn’t require coconut milk which in turn makes it healthier too. For my version of ‘dry curry’, I decided to use pork ribs instead of chicken and packed a whole bunch of spices into the paste that really made the dish so flavoursome and moreish. […]

Japanese Style Pork Belly Curry Recipe

I love curries – be it Chinese, Indian, Nonya or Japanese style. It makes a great one-pot meal with intensely robust flavours and the gravy just goes so well with rice, crusty bread or any noodles. Normally when I cook Japanese curry at home, I’d only use chicken as the base. For a change, I […]

There’s nothing better than having a cheat day to emotionally satisfy our craving which is something that the husband and I always look forward to. So what’s cooking up today?

Pork Shoulder with Salted Fish, Lotus Root and Braised Peanuts Recipe

Normally when we have Teochew porridge, we would eat plain rice congee with a variety of savoury dishes like fried salted fish, braised peanuts, salted vegetables, taucheo (fermented soy bean) pork – all served separately. This recipe is like a 3-in-1 dish that combines pork, braised peanuts and salted fish. It might seem like an […]

Panko Crusted Pork Chop Recipe

Crispy Pork Cutlets. Fried Pork Chops. Sound tempting enough already. But so much deep fried food just doesn’t do justice to our waistlines. To create a healthier alternative which can also satisfy that craving of a good crunch at the same time is to make use of Japanese breadcrumbs, panko. It’s lighter, extremely crunchy and […]

Stewed Pork Chops with Bitter Gourd Recipe

I really couldn’t recall where and when I had a similar dish like this before. Perhaps at some Teochew porridge stall or maybe Gramp had made it when I was little as he was so fond of the canned stewed pork chops then. All I remembered was that the dish was really savoury and tasty […]

Pork with Chickpeas & Orange Recipe – Low-GI, Low Carb

I was at the library looking up some low-GI cook books and found this interesting Pork with Chickpeas & Orange Recipe which I thought of making for dinner. The original recipe uses canned chopped tomatoes and dried chilli but I substituted them with fresh tomatoes and chilli flakes. Also added extra ketchup and sweet chilli […]

Sliced Pork with Garlic Sauce (蒜泥白肉) Recipe

Whenever I dine at Lao Beijing, I will definitely order their Sliced Pork with Garlic Sauce 蒜泥白肉 which comprises of thinly sliced tender pork (like those used in shabu shabu) with a good balance of lean and fat so they have that chew and crunch at the same time. The pungent odour of raw minced garlic is […]

Oven Roasted Honey-Glazed Char Siew Recipe 蜜汁叉烧

I like char siew (chinese style roasted pork) for its smoky, roasted flavour but I don’t really fancy the artificial red colouring used for most of the outside ones so when I chanced upon this recipe from My Wok Life that doesn’t use any colouring at all, I just have to try it.     […]
