i did a wok fried lean pork+long beans in nonya sauce for teban gardens community service centre on 24.6.2016.
this my 14th friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre.
the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.
doing 1 dish for 80-100pax is actually quite simple stuff with some planning.
i did a series for chicken & pork dishes & a few weeks of fish fillet.
one key consideration is that it should be boneless (so i do not cook pork ribs or whole fish with bones but only fish fillet) & also not so spicy.
for chicken dishes i deboned the chicken & because i need about 3 chickens (about 26 – 30 cut pieces for 1 chicken), it take 1 hr to debone the 3 chickens.
pork is easier. at first i used mostly belly pork. then i used pork collar which are less fat. this time i used lean pork.
for belly pork & pork collar i used the double cooked pork method 回锅肉，so the pork belly or collar were already tender & flavorful (5hrs in 90degC oven) before i fried them. for lean pork that is not needed.
long beans in nonya sauce was easy to prepare. about 1 kg of long beans.
for the lean pork, i tried to cut it thin. also about 1 kg of lean pork.
& just fried with some oyster sauce & fish sauce.
& added just a teaspoon of mala chilli at the end.
& put the 2 together in 1 aluminium container (top photo).
