What's Up, Cook?

After a sumptious dinner last night, I prepared a simple one for tonight. During lunch time I "consulted" my sifu Elin for some suggestions, I told her I have a small slab of pork meat, what shall I do with it? She suggested that I could mince the meat and then steam it with 2 normal eggs and one salted egg. Ahhh.. a good suggestion....

Went to The Store to get some vegetables and ended up buying some frozen cod fish as well. I thought it would be very expensive but to my surprise, it was very very cheap... for three pieces, they were sold at RM8.90 only... Gosh!! Got fishy smell or not, I asked her.... so cheap one!

Then Elin taught me to put more garlic...
Fried it dry dry...
Then put some kicap when the oil is hot...

and...pour over the fish after that...
no smell one, she said..
very true... eat while it is hot too!!

then i stir fry this vege...with lots of garlic too..
(apa panggil, i tak tau)

aaahh...this is the steamed minced meat
with 2 types of eggs
(kai tan and ham tan)

there... 3 dishes... enough or not?
my fren , Tammy, macam can smell one..
She called me while I was at the kitchen
And asked me "What's up cooking??"


  1. ah yo!! Looks so sedap la...feel so hungry now after looking at that photos....

  2. My stomach grumbling dy.. The sayur not lettuce eh? the fish, ethan's favourite style of cooking. He can makan the whole piece like dat lor.. :D

  29. Simple and yummy dinner! I love that steam meat with two type of eggs. At home we call it "three colours egg" because we add one more is century egg. Chicken egg, salted egg, century egg and the mince meat, so you get the three colours. :)

    My boys love fish too, normally i will buy mackarel, i will put ginger instead of garlic.

  30. donna: garlic smells if eat too much..yes... dont open mouth after eating lots of garlic.. but it is good for cholesterol.. :p

    cleff: this cod fish sells at 70rm per kg in supermarkets..mana ada small piece cost around 10rm over.. those muddy smell is talapia la.. river fish... :)

    annieQ: yes, sam wong tan.. my mum can do that smooth like tau foo far.. but for me, it turns out like volcano one.. hehee..

  31. My confinement lady can cook the steamed egg like tau foo far also. She said add a lil oil, then onie pour the beaten egg on it. If u encounter bubble, scoop up the bubble wor..i tried once, it work for me.
