Minced meat omelette ~ 'Dan Kok'


I remember that my mum used to make this omelette for us and my siblings would run for the tomato ketchup and chilli sauce.  This was a very well received dish for us and I re-incarnated this recently ..... 'Dan Kok'.



First fry the seasoned minced pork with some oil, dish it up.
Then spoon some beaten egg onto the pan and add in the minced pork, fold it up.








This is a very easy-to-do omelette and I'm sure that your family members will love it just like mine.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2  tsp light soya sauce
  • 150 gm minced meat
  • Pepper
Seasoning for meat
  • 1/4  tsp salt and sugar
  • 1  tsp sesame oil
  • Pepper
Preparation
  1. Beat up the eggs and add in light soya sauce and pepper.
  2. Heat up a pan with some oil, stir-fry the minced meat till cooked.  Dish out.
  3. Add in more oil and  spoon about 2  Tbsp beaten egg onto the pan, add in the some minced meat in the centre.  Flip half of the batter over to form a crescent, turn over and fry the other side.
  4. Continue with the rest of the egg batter and minced meat.
  5. Dish out onto serving plate.
  6. Garnish with some chopped chilli.
  7. Serve immediately with white rice.

  3. That's a very smart way of hiding meat inside omelette. Looks pretty too. I think it's a good way to hide vegetables for picky kids :D

  6. I usually fry the minced meat first and then pour the beaten eggs into it and allow it to set before flipping over and they turned out looking like pancakes:D Your version looks prettier

  7. Yes I remember my mum used to make this dish but fried the eggs together with the meat. I like your folded omelette version, so sophisticated :)

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge. Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy   ~    梅菜焖五花肉 Ingredients  400 gm pork belly cut into bite size 100 gm  preserved sweet mui choy 3 cloves of garlic 2 slices ginger Seasoning for the pork belly 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce 1/4 Tbsp sugar 1/4 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 Tbsp oyster sauce 1/2 tsp pepper 1/8 tsp light soya sauce Method Season the pork belly for about an hour or more.  Set aside. Soak the mui choy for 45 mins., rinse and squeeze dry.  Cut into slices Heat some oil in the wok, fry the mui choy.  Add in the ginger slices.  Stir-fry. Add in the pork  belly, fry for a while and
