Walnut & Diced Chicken Stir-Fry (核桃炒鸡丁)

“Healthy delicious chicken dish. What’s more?!”

Crunchy on walnuts, flavorful on chicken dices with mild sweetness yielded from the addition of honey in this dish. This is a dish likable by both the kids and adults.

In fact, I have this recipe and had the dish cooked up quite some time ago, but did not share so quickly due to lack presentation effect in my food photo. It’s too monotonous with just a single tone of brownish colour on the plate. So, I wanted to cook this again to take and show you a nicer picture of this dish before I could post it up. However, I decided to post this recipe now, after reconsideration as I think the sharing of any good recipe is more meaningful than showing off pretty picture. More

Japanese-Style Crispy Pork Chop (日式炸猪扒)

“Simple and quick-making Japanese-style crispy pork chops make your lunch box meal one of the best ever. And, remember to serve it with the savoury Japanese curry gravy!”

Prepare this savory pork chop meal in less than an hour time. And learn my tricks in making successfully crisped and coated chops. It is a 99% success rate.

And because it was home cooking, I tend to make it a healthier dish for my family, so as to save some cooking oil, as I do not like to keep the used cooking oil for cooking more than one time. So, instead of deep-frying the pork chops, I chose to shallow-fry them. It will still be crisped, but I had to fry only one side of the chop at a time as the oil in the pan will not be enough to submerge the entire piece. Just make sure that the chop is not too thick, and shallow frying method will be as good to make the dish a success. More

Moonlight Treasure Box (月光宝盒)

“Easy Making Mouth-Watering Steamed Minced Pork Cube with Dong Cai and Salted Egg Scopes”

This dish is similar to my previous steamed minced pork with salted eggs recipe, but this one tastes fuller than the other due to the addition of Tianjin preserved vegetables (aka ‘Dong Cai’ 冬菜) in it. And, I think this looks better in terms of presentation as I tried making it to resemble the mini treasure boxes on the plate. It is great to cook this during Chinese festive like Mooncake festival, Dumpling festival and even Chinese Chap Go Mei (Lunar Fifteenth Day of CNY), to make it a symbolical festive dish with the name of the recipe I have it here.

This minced pork dish goes well with both steamed rice or rice porridge. I liked it with the rice porridge as its strong saltish taste complements the bland rice porridge so well. Loved also the fact that it looks delicate and tastes tenderly soft and smooth. More
