i prepared –

- baby shanghai greens with shitake
for chicken, i used 2.8kg frozen boneless thighs, cut and marinated overnight with 6tbsp huadiaojiu, 3tbsp fish sauce, 3tbsp oyster sauce and 2tbsp corn flour.
this morning, i fried sliced ginger and minced garlic and added chicken, fried thoroughly for 5mins, covered wok and cooked another 2 mins.
& voila! a delicious dish of chinese wine chicken 黄焖鸡
i fried 1 cinnamon bark, 5 star anise, 3bay leaves, 5 cloves and 1 bulb garlic cloves till fragrant.
added 2kg belly pork and 3tbsp light soy sauce, 1tbsp fish sauce, 1 tbsp dark soya sauce, and braised 1 hr 15mins till tender. then cooled and placed in ziploc bag in fridge overnight.
this morning, i cut the belly pork neatly, boiled the braising sauce, and added the cut belly pork, simmered in covered wok for few minutes.
i fried the baby shanghai greens with minced garlic and cut chilli padi, added shitake and oysters sauce. and transferred to aluminium carrier for transport to HCA.
