Homemade (Pork) Luncheon Meat

“Enjoy the ‘sinful’ comfort food without guilt now”

Often we liked the canned luncheon meat (or you called it lunch meat/ SPAM), for its remarkably delicious taste and crispness after pan-fried, but for many luncheon meat lovers, you know you can’t have it much or too often due to the preservative, high sodium content, flavoring and MSG in it. You won’t like to give it to your children as well. So, how about a homemade one?! Some homemade version where salt content is adjustable, for a preservative and flavoring free luncheon meat you gonna make at home. :) read more

Pan-Fried Pork Belly in Korean BBQ Sauce


“Cooking a restaurant dish isn’t as complicated as you imagined it was.”

Super easy recipe. Simply get a bottle of Korean BBQ sauce to marinade the meat. This is great for busy working couples who wished they could prepare their dish in a flash.

I use pan-fry method to cook it. However, barbecuing is perfectly fine, especially if you are throwing a barbecue party, use this sauce would make you a different marinade next time.

Anyway, this cooking yielded the taste and texture of barbecued as I used slow pan fry method. Hence, medium low heat to slowly brown the meat with longer cooking time is required. read more
