Braised Pork Ribs with Peanuts ~ 花生闷排骨


My mum used to cook this dish but with a different part of the piggy.... the tail part, and it was a favourite among my siblings then.  But that part of the piggy wasn't my cup of tea and today I replicated this dish with pork ribs instead.   This is a comfort dish and it did pair well with a bowl of steaming hot rice.   I served a blanched veggie on the side and that's our dinner!

  4. Hi Cheah,
    This dish is so flavourful and delicious that I would have extra bowls of steamed rice with just the gravy ^-^! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Cheah, this looks delicious! How long do you have to simmer the pork ribs for until they are tender? Is 1 hour enough?

    1. I didn't look at the time.... if you use a pressure cooker, think it'll save a lot of time. Make sure you get the 'soft' peanuts, your grocer can help. You can add them together or cook the peanuts first. I was told that some 'hard' peanuts take a longer time to cook.

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.
