Stir-fry pork fillet with ginger and spring onions  ~   姜葱炒猪肉

Ingredients

  • 200 gm pork fillet, sliced
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp oyster sauce
  • 3/4 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 8 slices ginger
  • 2 pips garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • Spring onions
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of sodium bicarbonate to tenderise the meat
  • Shaoxing wine to drizzle
Method
  1. Marinate the pork fillet with the sauces, salt, sesame oil, cornflour and sodium bicarbonate for a hour or more.
  2. Saute the chopped garlic with some oil, then toss in the ginger and fry till fragrant.  Add in the marinated pork and stir-fry.  Sprinkle some water to cook the meat, cover with lid.  Once the meat is cooked, toss in the spring onions and onion wedges.  Stir-fry and test for taste.
  3. Drizzle on some Shaoxing wine and turn off heat before dishing out onto a serving plate.

Note :  Adding a pinch of sodium bicarbonate or baking soda to the meat will alkalise the meat's surface making it harder for the proteins to bond, hence the meat will be more tender when cooked.

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. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
