as the dish is apportioned on each plate then serve to the residents, the main consideration was to have enough pieces to feed 80pax.

for this preparation, i used 1.4kg pork collar-

  1. i had the pork collar in a 90degC oven for 2hrs
  2. the slow braise made it more tender & flavourful & also easier to slice (i counted about 90+ slices)
  3. i browned a bulb of peeled garlic cloves, added 1 cut chilli padi & about 2cm sliced ginger, then added 1.4kg cut cabbage, added chicken stock, cornflour, oyster sauce & reduced. added salt to taste. the cabbage was done just right, soft still crunchy & very tasty with the reduced stock.
  4. fried the pork collar separately. this was a bit similar to 回锅肉, which means to cook the pork a second time by wok fry.
  5. then i mixed the pork with the cabbage.

tasting the dish is an important step in cooking. make sure that salt was to taste to bring out the flavours, pork & vegetables had the right texture etc.
