SIMPLE EASY Japanese Curry with Pork Collar 日式猪肉咖喱



Is Japanese curry your favourite? Instead of chicken, why not cook with Pork collar?
I used Japanese Curry cubes that can be found at most supermarkets.
It's easy to cook just that you need some patience as need time to cook through.
From the video, you can see that I off and on the heat during the process. Reason is I do not want to burn the curry cube and make the mixture uneven.



Ingredients:
2 - 3 potatoes
1 carrot
300 gm pork collar
1 onion
3-4 Japanese curry cubes

Method:
1. Heat oil in wok and fried onion.
2. Add pork collar piece by piece and separate the meat to prevent from clumping up.
3. Add some water, oil and rice wine.
4. Once boiled, add potato and carrot chunks.
5. Add 300 - 500ml of water.
6. Once boiled, Lower heat to simmer for 15 minutes.
7. Off heat, add 3-4 Japanese curry cubes. Mixed well with the mixtures.
8. On heat again and simmer for 10 minutes.
9. Ready to serve.

最近一次去日本东京,找不到我之前爱去的那家日式咖喱店。最后没有机会真正吃到好吃的日式咖喱(不过却吃到好吃的天佛罗丼饭)。
回国后,还是很想满足食欲,所以决定做这份日式咖喱。希望你也和我一样,很满足!

My comfort food- Fried Cabbage with dried shrimp 虾米炒包菜

Click to video for full method.

This is my another comfort Chinese food. Is that yours too? I love all dishes with Hae Bee (dried shrimp), It has a distinct aroma that make all dishes taste so addictive and appetizing.
What are the dishes with dried shrimp? The famous Laksa, hae bee hiam (prawn roll) etc.
Just like prawn with shell, Dried shrimp is rich in protein, iron, calcium and vitamins. The amount of dried shrimp I used, only give us 13 calories. With cabbage to go with it, it is definitely a healthy dish.
Very simple to prepare and easy to cook. Only need 2 ingredients: cabbage and dried shrimps , with some seasoning. And it goes so well with rice. Sometimes I eat it on its own too.



(Serve 2 - 4 pax)
Ingredients:
1/2 Cabbage 包菜切片 (cut into pieces)
10-15 dried shrimps (wash and dried) 虾米
1 tsp minced garlic  蒜末

Seasoning:
1 tbsp Oyster sauce  蚝油
3 tbsp chicken stock   鸡汤
pinch of white pepper  少许胡椒粉

Method:
1. Heat oil in wok.  热锅烧油
2. Saute dried shrimp till aroma.  爆香虾米
3. Add mince garlic and continue frying. 加蒜末继续爆香
4. Add cabbage  加包菜
5. Add chicken stock, oyster sauce, white pepper and simmer for 15 minutes. 加鸡汤、蚝油、胡椒粉焖煮15分钟
6. Check for tenderness after 15 minutes. 查看是否是你要的软度
7. Ready to serve. 即可上桌

虾米炒包菜是我的喜欢的另一道家常菜。也是你的吗?材料很简单也很容易煮。是我的懒人美食。
任何虾米料理我都爱,尤其是虾米辣椒、Laksa、虾米卷等等。
虾米其实富含丰富的蛋白质、铁质、钙质和维生素,是女性的恩物。搭配蔬菜更是健康美食。我所用的虾米只含13卡路里,吃多了也不会胖。
