Waxed Meat Rice aka Lap Mei Fan ~ 臘味飯


The name 'waxed' meat or 'lap mei' can be misleading as there's no waxy stuff on the meat at all.    Instead the meat has been cured by a long process of salting, smoking and drying thus resulting in a waxy sheen on the surface.  This is the how food or rather meat was being preserved before refrigeration in the olden days.  Nowadays, Lap mei fan is a special  item on the menu of restaurants during the Chinese New Year period.   There is a selection of 'lap mei' available during this festive season, like goose or duck liver sausages, lap yoke or pork belly, pork sausages and lap arp or waxed duck.  What I'm going to share with you today is a very simple one-pot meal and I only used pork sausages and a waxed duck thigh.






Recipe for Waxed Meat Rice aka 'Lap Mei Fan' ~  臘味飯

Ingredients

  • 1.3/4 cups brown rice (rice cups)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 waxed duck thigh
  • 2 Chinese sausages
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 12 Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • Sesame oil to drizzle
Method
  1. Rinse the sausauges and slice them up.
  2. Rinse the waxed duck thigh, steam it for about 10mins., discard the oil and slice up the meat.
  3. In a wok, stir-fry the sliced sausages and duck meat, add in the sauces, mix well.
  4. Wash the rice and add water into the rice pot.  (I have to use more water as I'm using brown rice).
  5. Pour the ingredients on top of the rice and turn on the rice cooker.
  6. Once rice is ready, fluff up the rice, drizzle on some sesame oil, garnish with the chopped spring onions and a dash of pepper.
  7. Serve immediately.

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!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
