Siew Yuk (Chinese Roast Pork Belly) - Air Fryer
Firstly, would like to thank Alice Chin for
sharing this yummy and hassle free dish.
This recipe is superbly yummy and 
the skin came out very crispy.

1 teaspoon of 5 Spice Powder.
1/2 cup (or more) Salt.
6 cloves of Garlic.

1) Mix the 5 Spice Powder with pinch of Salt.
6 peeled Garlic.
2 & 3) Made horizontal slit on all the 4 sides.
 4 & 5) Push the Garlic inside deeply.
6) Rub the 5 Spice Powder all over the meat
(except for the skin). Marinade for 20 minutes or more.

 1) Place the Pork Belly on the grill pan.
2) Lay the Salt on top of the skin generously and evenly.
Air Fry at 190 Degree Celsius for 35 minutes.
3) Take out the grill pan and remove the Salt crust.
4) Air Fry again at 200 Degree Celsius for another 20 minutes.
(Note : The timing depends on the size of your meat.
Please check on your meat occasionally to avoid burning it.)

Note : If you don't have an air fryer, you can bake it
for 180 Degree Celsius for 1 hour and subsequent
240 Degree Celsius for 40 minutes.


Don't freak out upon hearing the "tuk tuk" sound,
it is a crispy skin sound....not a hard skin sound.

Serve with chili sauce or hoisin sauce :)

One-Pot Rice with Long Beans, Dried Shrimps and Chinese Dried Sausage

One-Pot Rice with Long Beans, Dried Shrimps
and Chinese Dried Sausage
My daughter gave a "super" delicious verdict.
So happy hearing it.

What ingredients made it super delicious?
Is it from the Japanese Rice or the Dried Shrimps
or the Chinese Dried Sausages?  You will be the judge.

One-pot rice is very easy, just dump all ingredients
together with the sauces and cook it.
It's easy for those who do not have the time or
lazy to cook but want to eat delicious meal.

1 1/2 cups Japanese Rice or normal rice
(Used it because my pantry runs out of normal rice)
2 pairs Chinese Dried Sausages
230g Long Beans (or one loose handful)
30g Dried Shrimps

1) Chinese Dried Sausages - Soak with hot water for
5 minutes and take out the edible cover and 
slice roughly.

2) Dried Shrimps - Soak with hot water for 5 minutes,
wash and roughly chop.

3) Long Beans - Wash and slice to 2 cm in length.

4) Mix the sauces - 2 tbsp Oyster Sauce,
1 tbsp Soya Sauce, 1 tbsp Dark Sauce,
1/2 tbsp Sesame Oil and 1 tsp Pepper.

5) Wash the rice until the water runs clear and
add water as required.

6) Add all the ingredients and sauces.

7)  Mix thoroughly and cook at high fire.

8) Once boiled, open the lid and mix the 
rice well combine, close the lid and cook further
at medium fire until cooked.

9) Taste to season.
(Chinese Dried Sausagez and Dried Shrimps are
salty, thus be careful when you are adding extra seasoning)

10) Mix again thoroughly and leave aside.

Salted Eggs Long Beans

 Salted Eggs Long Beans

Nowadays everybody are crazy with Salted Egg.
Before this craziness, there were only Salted Egg
Prawns, Salted Egg Crabs which mainly on seafood.
Nowadays, there will be buns, moon cakes and etc.
Well, in order not to lose out, I am making
Salted Eggs Long Beans.
 3 Salted Eggs
250 g Long Beans 
3 cloves Garlic
2 tablespoons of Cooking Oil
1 1/2 tablespoons of Butter

1) Steam 15 minutes the Salted Eggs (discard the white)
and mash with fork.
2) Cut the Long Beans into 2 inches length.
3) Minced the Garlic.

4) Par boil the Long Beans (approximately less than 10 minutes).
5) Keep aside.

 6) Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.
7) Less than 1 minute, add Garlic and stir fry for 2 minutes.
8) Add 1 1/2 tablespoon of Butter and stir well.
9) Add the mashed Salted Eggs and keep on stirring.
Bubble will appear.
10) Quickly add the Long Beans and keep on stirring
until well coated.
11) Season to taste if it is not salty.
12)  Serve immediately.

This dish is something different, partly healthy with the
Long Beans and partly unhealthy with the Salted Eggs.
Well, won't be any harm if we eat reasonably ...hehehe.

Salmon with Brown Mushrooms

Salmon with Brown Mushrooms

I don't know what to call this dish.
It is not solely stir fried nor pan fried.  It is a bit of both.
Well, who cares...hahaha. As long as it is delicious.
It is indeed delicious, my husband said it three times that 
he prefer the salmon to be cooked this way instead of grilled.

Salmon 310 g (cut to chunk size)
Brown Mushrooms 6 pieces (Sliced)
Garlic 2 cloves (minced)
Cooking Oil - 1/3 cup
Some Butter

1) Heat up the Cooking Oil with Butter and then add minced 
    Garlic and stir for 1 minute.
2) Add Button Mushrooms and stir until slightly soften and 
    arrange the mushroom to cover the whole pot.

 3) Quickly add the Salmon.  
     Arrange nicely on top of the Button Mushrooms.
4) Once slightly pinkest, turn the Salmon to the other side 
and Button Mushroom on top of the Salmon.  
Don't freak out if you couldn't turn all the 
Button Mushrooms to the other side.
5) Sprinkle with some Salt and Coarse Black Pepper and 
    dish out once cooked.

In fact, I kind of like this dish also and 
I hope you will like it.
Happy Cooking and Have  A Good Day.
