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!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
