Easy Mixed Spices Pork Ribs (简单烤排骨)

 “The simplest & tastiest way to fix an impressive dinner meal”
“让人惊讶,最简单又美味的晚餐”

I was too engrossed in watching Hong Kong drama series. No time to spend in the kitchen, but I have my easiest “long hour” pork rib recipe to hide my obsession with the TV.

Simply marinate the ribs, bake it for long hours where I would get all my time to continue with my tv program while waiting for the ribs to cook. When it’s done, no one would ever doubt me for not doing my job in fixing up a delectable dinner! :D

追电视剧追到没时间煮饭…… 幸好还有我这个最简单的“长时间”焗排骨食谱,让我可以同时间追看电视和准备好美味晚餐!

这说我没做家事?! :D

Serves 4-5

A serving of my baked ribs counts about 300kcal.
一份烤肋排约300卡路里。

Tips: Caribbean Jerk seasoning spice is a bottle of ready mixed spices, available at major supermarkets eg NTUC Finest. I used McCormick brand for this. No worries if you can’t find it, it’s a blend of red and black pepper, thyme and allspice. Mild hot flavor.
* All purpose seasoning herbs are a blend of onion, black pepper, garlic, parsley, celery seed, tomato powder, basil, thyme, oregano, sage and coriander. I used organic version, bought from online store.
* It’s not necessary to remove the membrane at the back of the ribs. The slab will stay intact better than without the thin layer.
* If you would like to retain the sauce, pour it out and set aside before proceeding with Step (3).

温馨小贴士:Caribbean Jerk调料香料是樽装的混合香料,各大超市均有出售。这食谱用的是McCormick品牌。不必担心,如果你找不到这款香料粉,它的成份有红辣椒粉,黑胡椒,百里香和多香果粉,磨粉。微辣。
*这里头用的多用途调味香料成份有洋葱,黑胡椒,大蒜,欧芹,芹菜籽,番茄粉,罗勒,百里香,牛至,鼠尾草和香菜,磨碎。这食谱用的是从网上购买的有机版本。
*没有必要去除肋骨背面的膜。留着薄膜能让排骨更容易保持完整。
*如果您想保留酱汁,请将其先倒出并搁置备用,然后再继续步骤(3)。不然就会被烤干的。

Easy Homemade Premium Gold Coin Bak Kwa (简易特制金钱肉干)

Post & Recipe in English and Chinese (中英食谱)

“One of the best festive gifts, BBQ sliced pork made into gold coin shape. Tasty and symbolizing.”
‪“新年佳节送礼首选的金钱肉干,美味,容易入口,也寓意着金钱入口(袋)。”

Home baked products are usually better in quality, and most importantly, it goes easier on your wallet. Free from MSG, preservative, and artificial flavor & coloring. You can even make different flavors and shapes.

My main trick to produce tender sliced pork is to add some pineapple jam into the marination. Yes, we do not need meat tenderizer here. Let the enzyme in the pineapple do the job for us.

Make it better, eat homemade quality, I used abalone…. sauce, for a premium produce. :)

‪家里做的没有味精,防腐剂和人造香料和着色。‬品质通常更好,你甚至可以做出不同的风味和形状。重要的是,自己做的比买的更加负担的起。

我最佳的制作巧妙就是在腌制中添加一些凤梨酱。里头的凤梨酵素能让肉干口感变得更加细腻柔软。

‪要吃就吃豪点!自己做的就是不一样,我也加了鲍鱼……浓汁。‬味道真的超棒哦!

A piece of BBQ gold coin Bak Kwa counts about 60kcal.
‪一块烧烤金币Bak Kwa数量约为60kcal。‬

Tips: Freshly baked Bak Kwa can last about 1-week.
* Mirin can be replaced with Chinese Hua Diao Wine. I personally prefer Mirin for its slight sweetness.
* Flatten the minced pork as thin as possible as it will shrink and raise in its thickness after baked.
* Add chili oil for spicy flavor.
* To make normal squarish slices, simply spread a thin layer of the minced meat over baking tray.
* Bak Kwa can be toasted on charcoal, too.

温馨小贴士:新鲜出炉的肉干可以持续约1周。‬
‪*米林可以用中国花雕酒代替。我个人比较喜欢米林的甜美。‬
‪*压扁猪末,‬铺得越薄越好,因为肉干烤后会收缩变厚。
‪*添加辛辣味辣椒油。‬
‪*要制作普通四方肉干,把肉末铺平在烤盘便可以。‬
*肉干也可以用火炭炉烧烤。

Festive Feasts Made Easy with Panasonic Cooking

I am sure most of the people are looking up to celebrate this vibrant fun-filled festival, home dinner parties and scrumptious lunch gathering are starting to pack our calendars. Here I have my easy-to-prepare festive recipe (modified from Panasonic Cooking) to help you get started.

Other than getting some easy recipes on hand, useful and functional equipment is the key to having your preparation and cooking jobs done much easier and quicker. My multi-functioning Cubie convection steam oven is one of those convenient kitchen appliances that I would recommend. Not only does it have the convection baking feature, I use it to steam, heat up food, and even do healthy frying. Yes, you do not need pot-full of oil to get your crispy food done now.

Healthy fried chicken winglets will help you cut down calorie intake by half. Eat more

Tips: This chicken wings recipe is good with any baking equipments, but best prepared with this Panasonic Cubie Convection Steam Oven NU-SC100.

What I personally like it most is the steam function. I do not need to set up my pot and steam rack, or electrical steamer anymore, simply place whatever food eg frozen buns, dim sum, fish, meat, chicken, etc into my steam oven and turn on steaming function to get it heated or cooked.

And for the minimalist, you don’t have to own 3 separate appliances of conventional oven, steamer and air-fryer now. Spare your tiny kitchen from the cluttering with this compact Panasonic Cubie steam oven in place. Of course, this easy-to-operate oven let you have all the convenience in most modern cooking. Roasting, baking, steam/ steam bathing (Japanese cheesecake method), and healthy frying to be done easily.

Stay tuned. I have more recipes to share. Ask me, if you wish to hear more of my sincere opinions.
