'Lor' or Caramalised Pork Shoulder


When I saw Zoe's post on  'Lor Chicken' recently I bookmarked it straightaway.  However, I've substituted chicken with pork and added hard boiled eggs too.  Lovely to go with rice.  Family members gave the thumbs up!




Recipe for ''Lor' or Caramalised Pork Shoulder (adapted from 'here' with modifications)

    Ingredients

    • 3 Tbsp oil
    • 3.1/2 Tbsp sugar
    • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 1 star anise
    • 2 Tbsp light soya sauce
    • 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce
    • 1/2 tsp 5 spice powder
    • 1 cup water
    • 800 gm pork shoulder, cut to bite size
    • 2 hardboiled eggs  (optional)
    Method
    1. Put the oil and sugar in a wok and heat on low flame.  Do not stir, just let the sugar dissolve and caramalise.
    2. Add in the garlic, cinnamon stick and star anise.  Add in water and spice powder, stir.
    3. Add in the meat, give it a good stir and once it starts to boil, lower heat and cover the wok.  Let the meat  cook till  tender and the sauce, a little syrupy.
    4. Add in two hardboiled eggs.
    5. Dish out and serve with rice.

  4. Hi Soke Hah, these days I do have a craving for this kind of 'Lor' meat dishes. I find them easy to prepare and tasted even better after resting. I prepare them earlier, just heat it up before serving. Yummy fuss free food the family get to enjoy even on busy days. Thanks for sharing. Bookmarked. I like the caramelised sugar method that makes the dish look and taste good.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
