Pork Floss


My family likes to eat meat floss, be it chicken or pork and this is getting to be very expensive these days especially with the approaching Chinese New Year.  So I tried my hands to make this with the slow cooker to  soften the meat and was quite pleased with the result.  If you don't mind the hours of standing and frying the meat till it becomes floss, then it's not a bad idea to make this a gift for CNY!





I made a peanut butter sandwich with this pork  floss or you may opt to serve it with white porridge.  Do keep the floss in a container and store it in the fridge as there's no added preservative.

Recipe for Pork Floss

    Ingredients
    • 700 gm pork shoulder               
    • 3.1/2  Tbsp light soya sauce
    • 150 gm rock sugar or to taste
    • 1 tsp dark soya sauce
    • 3/4 cup water
    • Some seasalt and pepper to marinate the pork
    Method
    1.  Marinate the meat with some salt and pepper for an hour or more.
    2. Put the meat into a slow cooker, add in all the sauces, rock sugar and water.  Cook on high for 4 hours.
    3. Remove the meat and shred with a fork.
    4. Transfer the shredded meat onto a non-stick pan, add in the stock, lower the heat and fry the meat constantly with a wooden spatula and tear the meat with a pair of chopsticks.  Fine tune to desired taste.
    5. Keep on frying until the meat floss is dry and crispy.  This may take about an hour.
    6. Let cool and store in an air-tight container.  Keep refrigerated.

  12. Cheah,
    Ohhh! This is my kids favorite.
    I believe the time of standing to cook is worth while because it is homemade.Homemade is always more tasty.
    Between,would like to know can I marinated the pork over night in fridge? Thanks:)

    1. You can pat dry the meat, then sprinkle some salt and ground pepper, mix into the meat. Leave it at room temperature for about half an hour, then cover it with cling film or put into a container with cover, put into the fridge. Most of the time I marinate my meat overnight, tastes much better.

  14. Thank you for sharing the recipe on meat floss.
    I tried it, but I tweaked the recipe a little. I added 1 tsp of 5-spice powder and used a pressure cooker to cook the meat (instead of boiling it for 4 hours).
    Turned out really, really flavorful.
    I live in Tokyo and it was wonderful to enjoy some home made meat floss.
    Would try with chicken next time, or make it a little spicy.
    Thank you. Looking forward to trying your bak kwa recipe in the near future.

    1. Yes, it's very much time consuming to cook the pork in a pressure cooker. The addition of 5 spice powder gives the extra aroma. Glad that you tried my recipe and thanks for dropping by.

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.
