6 lunch dishes

6 lunch dishes 

a RI friend was in town for w week leaving on 18.1.2017.

so i invited him for a 7pax homecooked lunch with our close RI friends on 13.1.2017. ^^

this friend i used to spend a lot of time together when we were in the twenties. he spent some time in china & hong kong & his family migrated to USA 10yrs+ ago. they stayed in cupertino now, and the children are attending college.

i did my claypot rice.

not my best perhaps but still a very flavourful “pang” claypot rice that everyone liked.

it had very tender, tasty chicken, and mushrooms & sausage, a bit of salted fish.

a friend has been missing the previous get togethers where i  made claypot rice so he was very much satisfied that he got to taste it finally.

tofu prawns

tofu prawns another dish i do very well these days.

the best was the one i made for a 5pax family dinner on new year eve on 31.12.2016. ^^

today’s tofu prawns was ok, but like one friend mentioned, it would have been better if i had infused the tofu a little longer in the sauce. overall, everyone liked the texture of the tofu & the tasty sauce.

spicy bean sauce fish

also did steamed seabass with my own spicy bean sauce.

i like this bean sauce a lot myself, especially when used with 松鱼头song fiah head.

for today, i used it for seabass as not everyone like fish head.

braised pork belly & pork ribs

braised pork belly & pork ribs 

the braised pork belly & pork ribs were a failed experiment actually.

as i made braised chicken for teban gardens community breakfast this morning, i had the braising sauce.

so i used it for the pork belly & pork ribs in a oven dish 6hrs in a 95deg oven.

texture was ok but the braising sauce became diluted & not well infused, so i braised it further over the stove to get the taste right.

& taste was good. all the friends liked it but the texture was out.

i did a very good braised pork belly recently on 1.7.2017.

so this method is better & preferred as it produces both great taste & texture.
