Home Cook 梅菜豬肉

Apart from 梅菜蒸豬肉, all of us like mom’s 梅菜豬肉. This is one of her favourite in fact. Normally she’ll get pork belly meat and cut into strips and marinate with dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and salt for about 30 minutes. And boil those preserve vegetables in a pot of hot water for awhile, and then chop finely.

This is a simple dish that anyone also can make it.

Heat up the wok with oil, stir fry the meat and added preserved vegetables.
Add dark soya sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and salt to taste too.

Well, whenever I asked mom how many tea spoon from those sauces, she will tell me, ‘No need one~la!! Just put a little bit here and there. No specific measurement.’

You will definitely roll your eyes, and wanted to give her a big kiss on her chick.

Anyway, I know I’ve not been contributing any posts lately. However, I sincerely wish everyone will drop by once in awhile. Till then… have a pleasant weekend!!

Haha.. so typical of the older generation not to have the right measurements for all the ingredients. Luckily, my Mum sat down, watch my Granny's cooking consistently and jot down all her measurements or else all her recipes would have followed her to you-know-where. :P

You could do that too you know if you love your Mum's cooking a lot :)

My mom too...just tell me "agak-agak". I would say they are more to qualitative than quantitative lo.

Well, my mom cook this dish too. But she have different way to cook it. :P

My mom also tells me to eyeball the measurement and just taste until u get it right! But coming from science background i tend to be specific & accurate ;D

Ur home cook posts are great! Keep them coming so I can ask my mom to cook when i go back to hometown

Hi Criz, good idea. Unfortunately whenever she cooks I was at work. So, how do I jot down the notes?

Hi Little Inbox, I agree with you. The older generation are more qualitative than quantitative. More over taste is kinda subjective too.

Hi Ling239, ya lor... pork belly meat mah. :)

Hi Durianberry, thanks for the compliment. Will probably post more home cook food right now, but will definitely go all out for food review once am fully recover.

Hi 550ml jar of faith, is that right?? Your favourite?? Thanks for the concern.

Hi PenangTuaPui, cooking or baking could release tension at times... I enjoy cooking but not quite enjoy cleaning. :)

I love to cook this Mui choy with belly pork often...put half sweet muichoy amd half salty mui choy. No need to keep to measurment too.

Tummythoz said...

When mom cooks agak-agak, tastes are consistent. When I do it, even the colour differs. (-_-)"

Good that you are posting all these homely dishes. I can use for reference.

Hi Dolphing, Thanks for dropping by. You have a great blog and very detail too. :)

Hi Babe_KL, hehehhee... well to be honest, me too!! Except on baking, I gotta follow the exact measurement. :)

Hi CK Lam, oh yes!!

Hi Jason, hmmm, you have your point! :D

Hi WMW, of course!! With lots of lots of LOVES!

Hi Sweet Jasmine, I dont quite like the sweet mui choy though they are the same, I wonder why. BTW, thanks for the award! :)

Hi Tummythoz, is that right? Maybe they have been cooking for many years...

Criz Lai said...

I have a good idea.. Just teach her how to operate a video cam. Whenever she cooks, just switch on the cam and record all her measurements :P
