Chicken Rice with Roast Pork Belly and Soy Sauce Chicken Livers

I have to admit that I been craving Malaysian foods lately and to assuage that need a little, I made chicken rice, sio bak (crispy roast pork belly), and soy sauce chicken livers yesterday. So delicious! Ugh, I can’t wait to eat the leftovers today. 😂 Make the chicken rice: 1-1/4 cups (uncooked) jasmine rice, […]

Air Fryer Sio Bak (Crispy Roast Pork Belly)

Happy Chap Goh Mei! Today is the 15th and last day of Chinese New Year and back home, we would typically have a mini celebratory dinner but since I have to work all day today, all I could scrounge up was a delicious dish of crispy roast pork belly, lol. Can I tell you a […]

Homemade Char Siu and Kolo Mee

For dinner yesterday, I made a simplified version of char siu (Chinese barbecued pork) and kolo mee, a simple dish of noodles tossed in a mixture of light, flavorful seasonings. Too delicious to stop eating! Enjoy! Make the barbecued pork: 1/2 cup light soy sauce 1/2 cup honey 2 tablespoons cream sherry Approx 2 to […]

Kway Chap (Flat Rice Noodles with Pork Stew)

This is another popular street food in South East Asia – something I would not have considered making at home if I live there. Traditionally, the stew consists of pork and various pig organs but for simplicity and convenience, pork tenderloin or other pork cuts would suffice and be as delicious! Enjoy! {Adapted from Spice […]

Sweet and Sour Pork

We started school officially this Tuesday. Boy, it was hard to get back in the groove of things. Why can’t it be summer all year long? :) Between prep time for lessons, actual school time, extra-curricular activities, working three days a week (including both Saturday and Sunday), and life in general, there isn’t a lot […]

Our Easter Dinner

In the evening – it was grilling time! We wonder why we don’t do this often. :) Note: Recipe for grilled pork can be found in a previously published post – Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork. For a bolder flavor, I divided 5 pounds of pork tenderloin into two bags and marinated each bag of meat with the […]

Soy Sauce Pork (Tau Yew Bak)

Here’s a dish that I grew up with. Of course back then, my mum often made it with pork belly or pork leg, which I’m not a big fan of because of all the fats. When I make this dish now, I use pork chops instead. To get the meat cooked until it is fall-apart tender, […]

Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork

With the warmer weather, my chives have been growing rather quickly and abundantly in my garden. That and the fact that we’ve been getting May weather in March, I figure it’s time to make our much-loved, favorite macaroni salad. I told Keith, if there’s only one summer dish I could make in the Summer, this would be it! I first […]

Pickled Mustard Soup with Pork

I love the convenience of a slow-cooker. It is a simple way to cook something without having to be there the whole time to monitor it, and I just love how tough cuts of meat turn meltingly tender in the slow-cooker. Below is a recipe I make often in my slow-cooker. It features a couple […]
