Simple Steps To Chinese Roasted Pork

MY FAMILY LOVES THE CRISPY CRUNCHY ROASTED PORK... I remember one time I drove for more than half an hour to the place where they sell the fresh ones, queued up patiently and parting some money just to satisfy the cravings.  They are pretty expensive these days and only a few stalls sell the good and fresh ones. Many times I wanted to try out doing the roasted pork at home but never got to do it until now...right here in the white country.  Lol...

Well, for one thing, I have company... Three's a company... Three minds... Three amateur cooks...
We googled and there were so many online... We read through a few recipes, we chose the simplest steps.... Easy to do for amateurs like us....
 
Pork belly is cheap here... This pound flesh cost around $5 plus...

First of all, a pound or 500gm of three layer meat...aka... sam cham yuk in Cantonese...
Clean it and wipe it dry dry.....
Marinate it with salt, pepper and 5 spice powder.... 
Leave in fridge overnight or at least 12 hours....
 
The next day, the poking began...
Using sharp pointed knives, poke the skin as much as possible...

Then cover the top layer with coarse salt...
Bake at 390 degrees for at least 45 minutes...
 
Take put from oven and scrape off the salt from the top layer...
 
Bake it again for 15 minutes... 
Crackling sound can be heard...

And soon it  turned out like this....
Let it Cool for 5 minutes...
 
Five minutes for us because we were drooling by then...
We couldn't wait much longer...

We started to cut it up.... Crispy sounds could be heard.....
 
And the result??? Super fabulous!
Eat while it is hot and crunchy!!

  4. I love to eat this very much and often queued up at the pasar malam in PJ to buy. It is really expensive for small portions! My wife tried to make once and I was surprised that the whole raw meat itself is not cheap at the market. Suddenly I thought whether I should rear the pigs by myself.

    I wonder how I can wrap the meat without using aluminium foils? The thought of Dementia scares me.

    1. you can operate your own organic pig farm. just put your meat direct on the grill rack if you don't want to use any aluminium foils.

  5. wah! so the secret is in putting a layer of salt on top of the skin to pre bake it once to make the skin super crispy!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
