Bakuteh and Chicken Rice 3pax Lunch on 7Jul2021

made 3pax lunch with LCH & beng san on 7.7.2021.^^

  1. aussie prime rib bkt
  2. 1/2 kampung chicken 白斩鸡
  3. stirfried Chinese cabbage

beng san brought fruits – jackfruit cherry & pears.

CCG was unable to join cos taking of urgent family matter.

today bkt was excellent…perfect texture, bite and taste!

easy to overcook this tender meat… today I cooked 40mins instead usual 1hr for Indonesian prime ribs.

Cold Storage had special discounts at S$26.90/kg for the aussie prime ribs (usual S$38/kg once S$40/kg)…

c/w Sheng Shiong S$22.90/kg Indonesia prime ribs which have huge long bone plus useless huge loin meat (not always possible to pick the smaller ends), this far better quality prime rib is also more worthwhile…I usually buy even at S$38/kg!

1/2 kampung chicken 白斩鸡 perfect too. tender, moist sweet, and I served with ginger sauce, homemade chilli and dark sauce.

& chicken rice very flavourful…

chinese cabbage was just whatever I had left in the fridge. lol!

we chatted quite long after lunch…had a great time with RI bros today…

dishes are all good this evening..they liked the claypot rice, hk steamed soon hock and spinach, V and Lisa don’t take mala, so most the drunken chicken…师父and daughter liked both saliva chicken 口水鸡drunken chicken 醉鸡, and I think 师父 liked the ter kar – braised pork trotters 卤元蹄 best. lol!

had a great time, and S made a very nice video afterwards…great memories to relish…

RECIPE = Duck Confit Ragout Bucatini on 30Jun2021

decided to make duck confit ragout pasta this evening on 30.6.2021.

I made this once before here.

bought a S$4.50 boneless duck thigh from sheng shiong.

just confit in duck fat, crisping the skin by cold pan low fire.

recipe below-

  1. clean duck leg. lightly salt, add 2 tbsp EVO rub and marinate 1hr
  2. low fire fry duck fat (taken from duck leg) in pan, place duck leg skin down fry till crisp (about 6mins)..turn over..add chicken stock, cover, boil low fire 1.5-2hrs
  3. brown 1 whole bulb garlic cloves in 1 tbsp olive oil..add 1/2 zucchini 1 red pepper cube cut..add salt, black pepper, soften to make ratatouille..
  4. remove duck & pour reduced stock & oil to ratatouille..
  5. cut 5,6 duck slices with skin for display..cut remaining & mix into ragout sauce
  6. boil bucatini 1min before aldente & add to ragout sauce
  7. when serving, heat up, can add shredded parmesan cheese & basil

the sauce & duck very good.

I use bucatini. son thought it would be better with tagliatelle or penn pasta basically a flat pasta which ragout sauce attached better.

I thought the pasta was good as it is but certainly a flat pasta would be better.

OPS RI Bros Homegourmet Dinner on 28Jun2021

made RI OPS bros 6pax dinner on 28.6.2021.^^

5 visitors WT, WM, HC, CCG, NCL…

Menu

  1. spanish omelette
  2. bouillabaisse – marseille seafood stew
  3. slow roast aussie pork ribs
  4. miso glazed large prawns
  5. sausage linguine
  6. scallops & squid squidink pasta

bouillabaisse very good as usual, very tasty and excellent ingredients, miso glazed prawn and 2 pastas all good, friends commented squid ink better..

though my bedder with cheddar cheese sausage past good too, but I know it was not as good as Aunty Bes’…she perfected it!

spanish omelette ok, not my usual best, I think not salty enough to bring out the taste.

somewhat disappointed with the slow braised aussie prime ribs..it thicker and heavier than the usual I prepare.. texture less tender than my usual though I have checked meat temp was ok, should have oven grilled/browned for longer.

WT brought 甘香蛤, a very tasty sauce cockles…excellent!

CCG brought baguette and nonya kueh from bengawan solo…

HC brought red wine.

and WM brought mow & D13 durians, and also mangoes.

we had karaoke after dinner…sang some songs..

had a great evening with good bros.

RECIPE = Oven Grilled Whole Saba on 25Jun2021

bought 3 saba fish from chinatown wet market for S$9.

made oven grilled whole saba 1pax dinner this evening on 25.6.2021.^^

not much recipe involved.

just clean with salt & pat dry with kitchen towel.

I rubbed salt over the saba fish and apply on the inside, then place in 250degC oven for 15mins..can be 18mins depending on size.

fish is oily so no need to apply olive oil.

super nice, fresh and tender and moist, and very fragrant from the natural fish oil. a perfect meal I finished eve lunch and dinner.

no different from good japanese restaurant outside.
