3pax OPS Bros Home Lunch + Durians on 9Nov2017

simple 3pax lunch

my OPS bros WM & WT came over for lunch. we decided last minute..

i made some quick & easy dishes-claypot rice, steamed pork ribs, fried celery with salted fish..

WT brought durians…the D13 & especially small seeds kang hai were very good..the MSW today less so…

HK claypot rice

HK claypot rice

i still have quite a bit of duck liver saucsage from HK.

so i made a simple claypot rice, 1.5cups rice for 3pax, 2 sausage + 2 duck liver sausage, 5 small chinese dried mushrooms cut in strips, fried with chicken fat & salted fish & chopped garlic (no ginger today), and cooked about 20mins.

not my best, still very flavourful & tasty. WM tapao some back

steamed pork ribs 

i steamed some frozen pork ribs for 2 hrs, very tender &  nicely marinated (about 400g pork ribs, 1tbsp fish sauce, 1tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp olive oil,1/2 tbsp sesame oil, 1/2tbsp oyster sauce, 1/2tbsp cornflour).

because i was not adding chicken for the claypot rice, i prepared the pork ribs so can add to the rice. it was not necessary as the rice was tasty enough & i just added some of the steamed pork rib juice.

salted fish fried celery

there was celery in the fridge, so i fried some picking the inside tender stems with salted fish…this dish my sis invention…very good actually!


D13 & kang hai durians

after lunch we chatted for a while then it was time for durians.

WT bought 4 durians S$75. the D13 was good & the kang hai with vanishing seeds was very good. both were S$12/kg. the MSW most heavy & expensive at S$16/kg was below par, some parts a bit hard & flavours not the best…

i have not eaten any durians since many months back when MSW prices rocketed to S$38/kg so my first in many months, still enjoy it though i know i have taken much better MSW.
