made braised belly pork with veg for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 12.10.2018.^^
this my 72nd friday breakfast community meal dish 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.
prepared the belly pork last evening..set alarm to 7am as usual for TG friday breakfast but woke up at 9.30am..checked phone NOT silent & alarm was ON..so old man couldn’t wake up even with alarm..
called Ros..she was ok if I cooked immediately & delivered at 10am which i did..use 1/2 the vegetables about 600g & all the meat 1.1kg.
for the braised pork belly, i used the seriouseats method for japanese chashu pork = 3.5hrs in 130degC oven, then kept in fridge overnight.
the belly pork was very flavourful, just slightly overdone, and was perfect to keep in a ziploc bag in the chiller overnight.
so it was easy in the morning to slice the belly pork into clean slices.
fry the nai bai vegetables, add some of the tasty marinade, cook & reduce the sauce, and add the sliced belly pork the last bit.
