Sweet And Sour Pork


I made some Sweet And Sour Pork recently. This is a dish that I enjoy with just some hot steamed rice. Simple and yet delicious. Prepare the pork and sauce separately in advance. Then, just heat up the sauce and toss in the meat when you are ready to serve. If pork is not your choice of meat, just substitute with chicken breast or thigh meat.

3 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar

Method


Marinate the pork with rice wine, soy sauce, ginger juice, egg white and white pepper for about 30 minutes. Heat the oil on moderate heat, coat the pork with corn flour and fry them in small batches until golden brown in color. Drain on paper towels and set aside.



Heat 1 Tbsp of oil and cook the garlic on medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then turn the heat on high and mix in the chili, peppers, onions and pineapples. Stir briefly and add the prepared sauce and bring it to a boil. Add the fried pork and mix well. Serve immediately.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
