Tau Yu Bak ~ Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 )

 


'Tau you bak' in Hokkien or 'Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce' in Cantonese is a very homey dish.  The main sauces are light and dark soy sauce with the addition of some spices like cinnamon, pepper and star anise and in this recipe I also added some oyster sauce, which is optional.  The addition of hard boiled eggs infused with the intense gravy makes this a very delicious and tasty dish.  Pair it with some sambal belacan to make it more appetising and appealing.

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. 

Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies ~ 向日葵麦片曲奇饼

  These cookies are crunchy on the outside and a bit soft and chewy on the inside.  They are healthy cookies with sunflower seeds and whole grains giving a unique and delicious flavour.  I used instant oats in this recipe and they tend to soften the cookies somewhat but if you prefer them to be more crunchy when you consume the next day, just pop them into the oven toaster for a minute or two. You may like to add this onto your CNY to-do list of cookies.
