Spare Ribs with Red Fermented Beancurd Paste ~ 南乳排骨


This was one of the dishes that I prepared during the recent Chinese New Year holidays.  These spare ribs were made with a marinade, cooked in a wok and finally grilled to add a bit of 'crunch', easy and fuss-free.  Drizzle on the sauce and they're ready to be served.  Meaty and tender, best eaten with your fingers!

  1. I like the idea of using preserved beancurd to marinate the spareribs. They must be very delicious and packed with flavours, Cheah.

    1. You're most welcome. I hardly deep fry my food, firstly it's not so healthy and secondly I don't have to clean up a greasy kitchen!

  4. Thanks for sharing. I usually deep-fry the ribs using this marinade but grilling makes it less messy and oily.

    1. Hi Irene. Thanks for dropping by. Yes, I've seen some recipes with this marinade but the ribs are deep-fried. I prefer to cook them till tender first, then grill them for a slight 'singe'. Works the same to me. Most important, my kitchen is not greasy :)

  5. Hi Soke Hah, I'm a 'fan' of yours for non-deep fried food yet tasted not least better than deep fried. I always love your idea of braising then grilling the meat. Very flavourful and no greasy kitchen. These pork ribs looks like Wuxi Pao Kuat... TQ.

  7. Hi Cheah, this is indeed a perfect way of non-deep fried preserved beancurd paste spareribs. When eating out, I like to order nam yue pa kuat as I don't like to cook this at home - reason, too greasy! Thanks for sharing, Cheah. Cheers :)

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
