Pork ribs nappa cabbage soup ~ 白菜排骨汤


My son cooked this delicious soup for us during our recent holiday and I told myself that I must replicate this when I'm home.   I substituted the ingredients and made this refreshing soup with only three key ingredients, which are Shitake mushrooms, pork ribs, nappa cabbage and of course, water.








  • Pork ribs with nappa cabbage soup ~  白菜排骨汤
  • Ingredients
  •  
  • 500 gm spare ribs
  • 600 gm Nappa cabbage, sliced
  • 8 Shitake mushrooms, soaked till soft and stemmed
  • 2.1/2 lt water
  • Salt to taste
Method
  1. Wash and blanch the ribs in a pot of boiling water.  Drain, rinse, set aside.
  2. Boil the 2.1/2 lt water, once boiling, add the Shitake mushrooms followed by the blanched ribs.  Cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 1/2 an hour, add in the cabbage and cook for another 2 hrs on low heat.  Add salt to taste.
  3. Serve with rice or noodles.

Yam Fried Rice ~ 芋头粒炒饭

This Yam Fried Rice dish seems to be appearing in the menu of some restaurants lately, and I've savoured two versions from two different restaurants.   Here, I'm sharing with you my version of Yam fried rice, prepared with leftover cooked brown rice.  If you don't have leftover cooked rice, you can still use freshly cooked rice but air the rice to remove moisture and refrigerate it for a few hours before cooking.  This way your fried rice won't become clumpy or mushy.





A very satisfying and delicious bowl of Yam Fried Rice, which I must admit is truly 'Yum'!

Sticky rice cake with red bean paste ~ 芝麻豆沙饼

I love red bean, be it  in kuih, mooncakes, rice dumpling or other pastries with red bean paste filling.   This was my first attempt at making the red bean paste from scratch and had to admit that it was really very time consuming.  Nonetheless this sticky rice cake or glutinous rice cake with red bean paste, was indeed very delicious especially when taken fresh from the pan.  I like it that it was not deep-fried but pan-fried with very little oil when using a non-stick pan.  Great to snack on with a good old cup of hot Chinese tea!
