Chicken Wing in Honeyed Char Siew Sauce (密糖叉烧汁鸡翼)

Simply easy, simple savoury

One of my readers was asking for a recipe of 密汁鸡 (Pronounciation in Mandarin as “Mi Zhi Ji”) in my FB Fanclub. Without her further elaboration on the dish title, I assumed she wanted the honeyed chicken. However, I had an urge of making the honey char siew flavour version instead, last weekend. So, I cooked this for this time, and I promised to cook the other honey chicken next time, ok (smile)? More

Aromatic Pan-Fried Five Spice Meat Cake (香煎五香肉饼)

“The very own homemade meat cake to be marked 100% by your kids!”

Just like what my reader, Anne, told me that her son rated her cooking with 100 marks, for some pork dishes cooked with my recipes. I created this pork meat cake,and hope Anne (and any of you) could try and receive compliments from her loved ones again (winking smile)! My little one did praise me for making this meat cake for her.. As for her who does not really like pork, she loved this meat cake so much! This meat cake creates aromas in the bites. And I loved it with a touch of five spice flavour, not too strong but enough to taste its fragrance. However, not many children like five spice flavour, if your kid doesn’t, omit the five spice powder and substitute with some ground white pepper. Yeah, just call it a pan-fried meat cake dish will do (smile). More

Dark Rum Pork Chop

“What’s for dinner tonight? See my simple “T-bone” pork chop with dark rum recipe.”

I tried making a 5-course Italian-Western dinner at home last week. It was my first trial making western meal at home, and felt so excited when first started. It was a hectic experience where I tried to managing everything, all at a time as hoping to have each course served pleasantly and warm. Finally, it was done quite to my expectation. They had hot steamy food, one course after another, while I was busy acting like a chef in the kitchen, and came to the dining table to have a munch or two quickly, before going back to the kitchen again for preparing food of next course. Well, my effort pays! They were very satisfied with the taste and presentation of food I’ve prepared for them (winking smile). More

Fish Fillet in Fried Shallot Oil and Oyster Sauce

“Nice Fried Fish with Fried Shallot Oil and Oyster Sauce”

My inspiration of this recipe came from the popular vegetable dish in Singapore and Malaysia, the blanched vegetable with oil & oyster sauce (油菜). I used the same method, but changed the boiled vegetable to fried fish. Kinda expected the fish dish will turn out good, and it is indeed tasted delicious, fragrant, robust, and appropriately done! I love this fish dish! More

Pork Chop with Special Sweet & Savoury Sauce (Pork Chop King ‘肉排王’)

“- Children’s favorite dish – Make your own sweet and savoury sauce for your child!”

Cooking dishes with sweet & sour sauce are my forte. It’s loved by anyone, especially the children of its savoury taste, sweet with a little bit of pleasant sourish kind. I love to make this dish as it is simple and yet, flavorsome. I called it as sweet & savoury sauce here, because the
sauce I made here is kinda different from the normal sweet and sour sauce I’ve made. So, call it Sweet & Savoury.

The secret weapon to most of my meaty recipes is the Lea & Perrins’ Worcestershire Sauce. It adds extra flavour to it, and extracts the fullest essence of the dish. More
