I am back with my simple dishes!
Recipe 10 Char Siew
Ingredients: Pork (I buy from the wet market and I just tell the auntie I want to buy ‘char siew meat’. I have no idea what it’s called in the supermarket. But the original recipe calls for shoulder butt or tenderloin.), 2tbsp hoisin sauce, 1 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp oyster sauce, 2 tsp light soy sauce, 1 tsp dark soy sauce, 1 tsp hua diao wine, few drops of sesame oil, 1/2 tsp five spice powder, 1 tbsp sugar, 2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp onion powder, dash of white pepper
Method: The original recipe is from Munch Ministry. Char siew sounds like a lot of work, right? Especially with the intimidating list of ingredients above. But it’s super easy! Just marinate the pork with all the ingredients for at least 3 hours and just pop it in the oven for 30 minutes at 170 deg C, then flip it over for another 20 minutes. Voila! I usually marinate the previous night so that there is minimal work during the day. My kids love this dish!
Recipe 11 Braised Pork with Egg
