Braised Hakka mee/noodles


Braised Hakka mee/noodles which in fact in Cantonese is 'Sam See Mun Meen' ..... what a mouthful!  'Sam See' here means 'three shreds', 'Mun  Meen' means braised noodles.  The 'three shreds' in this case are mushrooms, chicken and pork all sliced up.   This is a very easy to whip up one-dish-meal which is tasty enough yet wholesome.



 



Mmm ..... look at the famous Ipoh fatty bean sprouts, crunchy and coupled with  the not too dry noodles ....   Join me and dig in ........ slurp!

Recipe for Braised Hakka mee/noodles

Ingredients
  • 100 gm fresh Chinese mushrooms - washed, cut off the stem and sliced
  • 100 gm chicken breast - sliced
  • 100 gm pork fillet - sliced
  • 250 gm bean sprouts
  • 3 pieces Hakka noodles - loosened
  • 1.1/2 cups water
  • Salt/light soya sauce to taste
  • Sesame oil
  • Pepper
  • 1 egg
  • Cornflour + water to thicken the gravy
Garnishing - spring onions, chopped and sliced red chilly

Seasoning for the chicken and pork.  Marinate for about 2 hours or more.
  • 1.1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 2 tsp light soya sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
Preparation
  1. In a wok, bring to the boil 1.1/2 cups of water, add in the marinated meat and sliced mushrooms, when cooked, set aside.
  2. In a pot of boiling water, blanch the bean sprouts for a second, drain and set aside.
  3. In the same pot of boiling water, add in the loosened noodles, one at a time, keep stirring for about 1 min.., take out and give it a cold bath of running water - 'kor lang hor', for a second, and return to the boiling water, stir and once the noodles are translucent, they're done.  If you prefer them to be softer, cook a little longer.
  4. Drain and place the noodles onto a serving plate, drizzle in some sesame oil, light and dark soya sauce and mix up the noodles, to prevent them from sticking together.
  5. Reheat the meat and mushrooms, break in an egg, give it a quick stir, add in cornflour mixture to thicken.
  6. Add salt and light soya sauce to taste.
  7. Scoop some blanched bean sprouts onto the plate of noodles, ladle in the mushroom gravy.
  8. Garnish with the spring onions and chilly, add a dash of pepper.  Serve immediately.
  9. Makes 3 servings.

    This is quite similar to won ton mee, except that it has less alkaline water, 'kan sui' and the noodles are slightly broader.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
