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!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
