Grilled Spiced Pork Chops Recipe

The husband commented recently that I have been making western food quite regularly these days though I am more of an Asian food person, haha. Not that he’s complaining since he eats whatever I cook. But I’m also very thankful ‘cos he’s my most supportive guinea pig for each and every of my kitchen experiment even […]

Pork Collar with Crispy Garlic Sauce

This Pork Collar with Crispy Garlic Sauce is an adaptation of my Sliced Pork with Garlic Sauce (蒜泥白肉) Recipe which is suitable for those who don’t like the spicy and pungent flavour of raw garlic. After the garlic has been fried in oil, its flavour becomes milder and sweeter. Also, it kinda resembles crushed potato […]

Fan Choy Recipe

Fan Choy (饭菜 in Cantonese) is what I call the ‘dim sum version’ of the char siew rice which is affordably priced (small portion though) and readily available at those stalls selling dim sum and steamed buns at hawker centres or coffeeshops. For my recipe, I chose to use brown rice (it’s healthier than white!) […]

Honey Garlic Ribs Recipe (with Lee Kum Kee sauce)

A couple of days ago, I shared a Stir Fried Prawns with XO Sauce Recipe on which I also introduced and reviewed the brand new Seafood XO Sauce from Lee Kum Kee. In the same CNY gift pack I received, there was also this Sauce for Honey Garlic Spare Ribs which I thought would be […]

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 […]

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 […]

Stir Fried Pork with Crispy Yam Recipe

I bought a few lovely yams from the supermarket and ended up making a yam feast of claypot seafood with yam, yam rice, yam paste dessert and this, lol. I liked the texture and flavour of the crispy yam sticks that really reminded me of the potato sticks snack that I used to eat when […]

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 […]

Kimchi Stew Recipe

On days when I have a cold or sinus infection and my nose goes stuffy, I tend to crave for spicy things that can help unblock my nose and make me breathe better. Since I was down with flu last month, I couldn’t quite smell or taste my food properly for a period of time so […]

Tonkatsu (Japanese Pork Cutlet) Recipe

The husband is a die-hard fan of my Chicken Katsudon as he feels the panko breadcrumbs really give the meat an incredible crunch when fried. I don’t really prepare fried food that often at home but when I do, I let him indulge to his heart’s content, lol. So when I saw some really nice slabs of pork […]

Honey BBQ Baby Back Ribs Recipe

With my under-6-bucks slab of baby back ribs from Foodie Market Place, I tried to recreate the same Grilled Baby Back Ribs from Chili’s Grill & Bar that my dining companions and I totally digged the last time we were there. I made use of my mum’s very simple recipe with only two ingredients – […]

Tau Cheo Pork Ribs Recipe

Tau Cheo (Fermented Soy Beans) Pork Ribs is another of Gran’s signature dishes so every time I make this, it really evokes memories of the good old days. I tweaked my recipe several times as I wanted to achieve that same balance of flavours in Gran’s version. Not exactly like hers yet but close enough […]

Spicy Stir Fried Kimchi Pork Recipe

Annyeong-haseyo! 안녕하세요 (“Hello” in Korean) I have such a food fetish for anything Korean these days that I actually tried whipping up 5 consecutive days of Korean dishes for lunch just by using gochujang (Korean chilli paste), chicken or pork, vegetables, kimchi and rice or vermicelli. And I’m just amazed at how versatile this gochujang […]

Minced Pork Patties with Lotus Root Recipe

Every time I cook lotus root soup, I would get leftovers of lotus root as it’s often sold in huge sizes in the supermarket and it’s just too much for a pot of soup. So these days, I would first slice up a small bunch and keep in the fridge for next day to prepare […]

Fried Bee Hoon with Stewed Pork Recipe

This Fried Bee Hoon with Stewed Pork Recipe is one of my favourite one-dish recipes. Normally if I have to cook lunch on weekends, this would be one easy dish to prepare. The stewed pork has a rich and flavourful gravy that makes the bee hoon slightly moist and savoury tasty. And this dish reminds me […]
