babi pongteh

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.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

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.

boiled belly pork

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.

fry diced pork chop

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.

added belly pork

then added the boiled belly pork.
