Ginger Flower & Orange Pork Stir-fry

A marriage of the  Ginger Orange Pork or Chicken Stirfry and the Ginger Pork recipes.  Always on the lookout for a new variation of an old dish. Why? I do get tired of cooking and eating the same dish over and over again and as such, I like to experiment and try a different style of cooking or choice of condiments to see it they work. … Continue reading Ginger Flower & Orange Pork Stir-fry

Pork Florentine en Croute

This dish started off as almost daily headache of 1) protein option and 2) how to cook it. Pork was the chosen protein and it really came down to what choice cuts were available. Fillet or tenderloin would have in normal days would have been sliced & stir fried into Ginger Pork or paired with spinach into Pork Roulade . The word ‘en croute’ crept … Continue reading Pork Florentine en Croute

Spiced Pulled Pork

I don’t know about you but it seems that I am always wondering what to do with leftovers and how to turn them into something different and appealing. Waste not what you can recycle. Food recycling has become a trend in my home. What do you do with leftover Schweinshaxe (Roasted Pork Knuckle) ?Sandwich? Wrap? With Pasta? Pizza topping? Casserole?

Kung Pao Apple Chicken

Have you had those nights or rather days where you don’t have a clue of what to cook? I have had so many especially during the Covid restrictions or Heightened Alert as it is known in Singapore. Lunch and dinner depends very much on what is available in the fridge or the supermarkets. Gets tricky when you stock up on ingredients at a less crowded … Continue reading Kung Pao Apple Chicken

Dak Bulgogi (Korean BBQ Chicken)

This recipe had been sitting in my notebook since February, waiting patiently to be written out. So before I procrastinate any longer ………… While following this recipe, I noticed the similarities with the Chinese version of Sesame chicken or the Japanese Teriyaki sauce, which are used also for barbecues, coincidence or influence? If you are looking for a spicier version that is normally found in … Continue reading Dak Bulgogi (Korean BBQ Chicken)

Oi Muchim (Korean Cucumber Salad)

View Posts A continuation to the Korean BBQ theme that was had for the Chinese New Year 2021. Another new favourite to be added in place of a raita or tzatiki. Basically a ‘cooling’ salad or relish to take the heat off some of the spiciness of the BBQ.  Korean cuisine favours lots of soya sauce (ganjang), sugar (seoltang) and chilli pepper (goju) and as … Continue reading Oi Muchim (Korean Cucumber Salad)
