made babi pongteh for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 5.7.2019.^^
i cook a dish for teban gardens every friday unless i am traveling or otherwise indisposed.
this my 98th 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.
i made babi pongteh once before almost 4yrs back. it was pretty good.
this time making a breakfast dish for 140pax at teban gardens, a bit different. i had about 500g belly pork and 800g pork chop which i cut into small cubes. and i added carrots and potatoes for the bulk, to give a substantial dish. so no taupok and mushrooms this time.
and because i cooked in the morning, it was easier for me to precooked the belly pork the evening before, about 1.5hrs and placed in fridge in ziploc.
this morning i cut the belly pork. this way the texture inside very tender, but cut nicely w/o fraying. and speeded up my preparation in the morning.
i fried 5 cut shallots to translucent and added 5 chopped garlic cloves. added 4tbsp crushed taujeon and fried till fragrant.
then added diced pork fried about 10mins. and added 2tbsp light soy sauce, 1 tbsp dark soy sauce.
then added the boiled belly pork.
stirred thoroughly to mix and it’s done. set aside.
then i fried carrots with oyster sauce for 10mins to soften. then added cut potatoes, another 10mins to cook.
and added the carrots and potatoes to the babi pongteh.
a very tasty dish, with nice taujeon flavours and wonderful belly pork texture.
