The Best Red Wine Belly Pork Home Dinner on 22Jul2018

kale, flamed red wine slow braised belly pork on mash 

wife bought some kale & wanted to experiment on roasted kale this evening on 22.7.2018.^^

so i did a red wine belly pork & potato mash (both first time) to replicate the excellent dish i had at my RI bro birthday set lunch at foc on 17.7.2018. 🙂

first time i made mash=it was very good.👍👍👍both wife & daughter loved it!

i didn’t add milk & heavy cream. i just had gourmet butter, chopped garlic, olive oil, salt & ground black pepper.

the flamed red wine slow braised red wine belly pork was just exquisite=perfect texture (braised 4hrs in 130degC oven) and wonderful flavours (red wine, strawberry jam, mustard, mirin, and scallions, red onions, garlic).

only youngest daughter joining dinner, so we just made 2 dishes for 3pax dinner.

crayfish tagliatelle in white wine sauce

i had crayfish in the freezer & good stock so i made a crayfish tagliatelle in white wine sauce.

crayfish was fried with butter olive oil & some sea salt & oyster sauce..

added stock to white wine sauce, tossed pasta & added back the crayfish.

good pasta evening though still not as tasty sauce & as al dente as what i made for 11pax RI makan group friends on 3.7.2018. 🙂

first time i made red wine belly pork this way=4hrs in 130degC oven then flamed 👍👍👍

i have done belly pork in various styles. for today decided to use the japan chashu method – 4hrs in 130degC oven.

for the braising sauce, i use my own creation, 1/2 cup red wine, 2tbsp mirin, 1 tbsp strawberry jam, 1tsp salt, plus ground black pepper.
