'Lor' or Caramalised Pork Shoulder


When I saw Zoe's post on  'Lor Chicken' recently I bookmarked it straightaway.  However, I've substituted chicken with pork and added hard boiled eggs too.  Lovely to go with rice.  Family members gave the thumbs up!




Recipe for ''Lor' or Caramalised Pork Shoulder (adapted from 'here' with modifications)

    Ingredients

    • 3 Tbsp oil
    • 3.1/2 Tbsp sugar
    • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 1 star anise
    • 2 Tbsp light soya sauce
    • 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce
    • 1/2 tsp 5 spice powder
    • 1 cup water
    • 800 gm pork shoulder, cut to bite size
    • 2 hardboiled eggs  (optional)
    Method
    1. Put the oil and sugar in a wok and heat on low flame.  Do not stir, just let the sugar dissolve and caramalise.
    2. Add in the garlic, cinnamon stick and star anise.  Add in water and spice powder, stir.
    3. Add in the meat, give it a good stir and once it starts to boil, lower heat and cover the wok.  Let the meat  cook till  tender and the sauce, a little syrupy.
    4. Add in two hardboiled eggs.
    5. Dish out and serve with rice.

  3. Hi Soke Hah, these days I do have a craving for this kind of 'Lor' meat dishes. I find them easy to prepare and tasted even better after resting. I prepare them earlier, just heat it up before serving. Yummy fuss free food the family get to enjoy even on busy days. Thanks for sharing. Bookmarked. I like the caramelised sugar method that makes the dish look and taste good.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them. Black Bean Sauce Chicken   ~   黑豆酱鸡 Ingredients 450 gm  chicken, cut into bite size (whole leg of chicken and breast) 2 tsp black bean sauce 4 pips of garlic, chopped 1 big onion cut into wedges 1 chilli, chopped 1 small Carrot, cut into slices Curry leaves Bit of sugar to taste Method Season the chicken with a pinch of salt. Saute the chopped garlic with the curry leaves and black bean sauce till fragrant. Add in the seasoned chicken, stir fry and sprinkle on some water if the dish is too dry. Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
