Bacon Bones and Cabbage Stew ~ 培根骨焖白菜.


I cooked this dish during my recent holiday in Perth.  I was attracted to the big chunks of bacon bones at the butchers in the supermarket and instantly thought of the savoury and sourish dish which we normally cook leftovers with 'gai choy'.   I couldn't find 'gai choy' and so substituted with green cabbage which turned out just as good.

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.
