“Restaurant standard pasta dish which can be served easily at home. To impress your loved ones, or visiting guests.”
Cooked this for my lunch meeting yesterday. Knowing that the cakes and desserts were the “highlight” of the session, we tried to keep our main course simple. Yup, made this meatball tomato pasta as part of my contributions to the potluck meal, I was glad that many of them enjoyed it pretty well!
Really nothing fanciful, my pasta dish was just one of the many versions. Of course, with a twist to adapt the pasta cooking as my own.
“It’s not your ordinary Kou Rou (steamed pork belly) dish.”
I have my conventional recipe for Kou Rou dish. And here, I was to bring my pork Belly dish to a new level, with the necessary festive twist. Simply to prepare it as one of our Chinese Lunar New Year dishes!
I would like to consider this an entirely different pork belly dish. Not only the side ingredients were adapted for auspicious purpose, the recipe was just different. Cai po, Miso paste, mirin, etc were used here.. Weird? It turned out so well, in fact!
“My new pineapple curry, with made-from-scratch curry paste recipe.”
Curry, a dish which comes in all variations, and has been cooked in all cuisines. No one wouldn’t know what is curry. I have my new recipe for curry, too, which has incorporated fresh pineapple paste.
Cook this mild spicy sweet curry, it just goes well with any kind of staple food e.g. biryani rice, nasi lemak, white rice, crepe, bun and bread.
300g of pork meat (short ribs or loin)
2 long wedges of fresh pineapple (for making into paste)
1 long wedge of fresh pineapple, cut
5-8 cherry tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Pinch of brown sugar
60g of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
“It’s always known as the childhood dish cooked by grandma…..”
One of the regular Asian dishes often cooked by grandma back in our childhood days. It’s nothing fanciful, and almost every household knows how to make this. However, this simple pork dish carries most memorable childhood moments as well as the home-feel taste for most people.
I would cook this once in a while, simple reason, it goes just so well with a plate of hot steamed rice! And, it’s just too simple to cook!
“Restaurant standard maple coffee ribs for tonight…. There is no excuse for you not to eat at home!”
This is easily one of the best coffee ribs which I have created for my cooking assignment.
This is an easy recipe, with a little bit more steps to follow, but it’s definitely worth the time and effort. Well, everything was done from scratch! :)
Delicious, delicious…. Yes, the ribs were perfectly flavored. This pork ribs dish could be served as a Western cuisine, or your usual Chinese sit-down dinner meal. Just the plating that matters.. Otherwise, this is so yummy to enjoy on its own, or go with a plate of steamed rice!
“Use of air-fryer to roast the pork, before stir frying in wok to complete the dish.”
It was an impromptu idea to making of this dish. Just wanting to cook a dish tasted robust and yet able to feed everyone at home. I thought it was easy to cook, and pleasant to taste.
Sounded deceptively complex, but in fact, the dish was easy and quick to assemble. I air fried the sliced meat to create some crispness to it before actually cooking in the wok. Air frying did help the seasoning sauce to fully absorb into the meat during the process. It also made the entire cooking less hassle with shortening of the wok-time.
