Simply Mini Cheesy Pork Cutlet

“Cheesy pork cutlet, Cheesy pork sandwich, or Cheesy fried pork chop, whatever you called it, this delicious savory ‘cheesy in pork’ dish would now be your child’s all-time-favourite. So as to you, big guys!”

I was so excited to introduce to you my latest dish, the mini cheesy sandwiched pork cutlet!

Yes, I did not make the standard sized pork chop, and instead, the bite-sizes. I wanted it to look cute. Most importantly, it was because I did it in a way that the pork chops were steamed beforehand. Just like my Japanese pork cutlet dish, it was easier to deep fry the crust to almost perfect golden by not worrying if the meat was cooked or not. Well, you may think this is an extra step which might not be necessary to you, do the ‘raw’ way may give you your better dish instead. It’s your comfort choice though.. read more

Tonkatsu (Japanese Pork Cutlet)

“Japanese Pork cutlet with Special Miso Sauce that whets your appetite”

Once my non-Chinese friend asked me why Chinese likes to marinate the meat for ALL sorts of cooking other than BBQ? Will it really make a huge difference in taste? I was speechless. Frankly, I do my marinating for meat, even if it’s to be added in my noodle cooking, fried or soup. Some said it is a must to elevate the taste of the meat… Some said marination is to hush up the ‘meaty’ (or ‘fishy’) smell in it… And, I could tell you that it is pretty much a habit learned from mum since young, more than any other reasons… (smile). read more

Express Black Bean & Soy Bean Paste Chicken Stir-Fry

=&0=&

This dish is similar to my preserved black bean chicken dish, but it should be considered the simplified version. Easier and quicker.

I cooked it this way to save some time and effort, actually. Since this is just a resemblance dish for settling our dinner with a quicker fix after being worn out by all my festivities since last year end, I didn’t thought of posting this, actually… But, to my surprise, papa said this version yields even better taste than my original version. The version which I’ve learned from the tv cooking program of the celebrity chef (laugh)! read more

Swiss Chicken Wing Recipe (瑞士鸡翼)

“Sweet Swiss chicken wings. Simply easy to cook, and delicious to savour.”

Thanks to my readers who love my recipes. You gave me ideas on what food to cook and explore at times. I was requested to cook Swiss chicken wing this time. In fact, I wanted to cook this dish since my last taste of the Swiss wing at the cafe in Hong Kong during my trip there back in Sep.

As well-known by many foodies, especially Hong Kong residents, Swiss chicken wing is not originated from Switzerland. Swiss wing is believed to be a great creation by a Hong Kong chef. Hence, Swiss chicken wing is popularly served in many cafes and restaurants in Hong Kong. Some even considered this as HK cafe delicacy. read more

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. read more
