'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.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
