Stir-Fried Roast Pork with Salted Vegetables and Minced Garlic

“Flavoursome dish to best complement your plain porridge or hot steamed rice”

You know? Sometimes we like to eat roast pork (烧肉), so we will pack some meat from the store as dinner over lunch time. We have to leave the packed meat in the office till the night, and hence, we will normally forgo the nice chili as it will go bad if waited till the night. But, by eating just the roast pork without nice chili to go with, the taste of such scrumptious roast meat goes less appealing, I personally think so (smilling). read more

Stir Fried French Beans with Prawns

French bean isn’t long bean, eventhough their colours and shapes are similar, but the length and texture of these beans are in great difference. Frence bean is much shorter than long bean, and french bean tastes more crunchy while long bean is softer than the other, after cooked. French bean looks smoother and thicker on its skin while long bean looks more ‘wrinkled’ and thiner than the other.

I love both beans, but for different kind of cooking and recipes. I like to cook long bean with either sambal chili, or chop and mix it in the eggs to make an omelette with long beans. As for french bean, my favourite recipe, of course, is this one! read more

Stir-Fried Chili Clams

“Clams, one of the most likeable seafood dishes to be easily cooked at home.”

Clams required little preparation for cooking which made this seafood one of the popular dishes in various cuisines. The fresh clams were decently priced and sold at the wet market and supermarkets, too.  However, they might be seasonal and not so widely available, at times. So, grab them once you see them. It’s not only for the appetite, clams are actually packed with nutrients, mainly iron, Vitamin B12, selenium, manganese, protein. Yes, it’s really great for the brain and skin. read more
