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!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
