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 :)

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.

Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020 ~ 柴茶冰皮月饼

This time, I experimented with Chai Tea to act as a flavour for the dough skin of this 'Bing Pi',  冰皮 mooncake.  These non-baked snowskin mooncakes are soft, slightly chewy and can be referred to as mochi mooncake too.  Nowadays snowskin mooncakes are gaining popularity and like their baked counterparts, they can house different flavours of lotus paste as well.
