Banana Pastry with Chocolate Sauce

by · 18 comments

This recipe was suggested by my sister when she traveled to Australia and visited me. She said she tried this dessert, banana pastry at a dessert café in Hong Kong. Immediately I baked one for her, that only took me just half of an hour. It’s really yummy and easy to make. The hot banana inside the pastry with smooth chocolate sauce tasted heavenly. Who can resist the temptation of ice-cream as well?

These oven baked pork ribs perfectly go with steamed rice. The taste of these ribs explodes in your mouth and awakes every taste bud of yours. Every time I make this dish, I find myself have to lick every bit of the ribs since I don’t want to lose any of the delicious sauce on the ribs. To make moist and succulent ribs is quite challenging. There won’t be any fat or too much meat on bones, as a result it can be dried up very easily along the way of baking. Fortunately, there’s an easy work around for making wonderfully tasty and succulent baked American ribs to entertain your family.

Kimchi and Prawn Fried Rice

by · 1 comment

Making fried rice is a good way to use up any leftover vegetables or meats in fridge. It can be whipped up within half an hour. Then you can enjoy a well-balanced meal. I often use pork or chicken meat to make fry rice. This time I tried with turkey mince that I happened to spot the special offer at a nearby supermarket. After trying, I decided to post this recipe to share with you all. I highly recommend to use turkey mince if you have a chance to get any. Turkey meat contains higher protein with less fat. The meat texture is very soft, absolutely good for stir frying with rice. I also popped in some Kimchi and several prawns. Voila, a humble fried rice dish was turned out to be a very nourishing and flavoursome one.

Pork & Bean Sprout Omelette

by · 1 comment

There are plenty of ways to cook eggs. One of my favourite ways is to simply pan fry them with some vegetables and/or meat. I used bean sprouts and pork the other day. My family was just loving it. The omelette was gone in a few minutes. The dish can be done within 15 minutes as long as you have silver sprouts (銀芽) ready, that their ends are trimmed. To prepare silver sprouts is not that difficult, yet quite time consuming. For convenience, you can skip this step. All parts of a bean sprout can be eaten after all. This Hong Kong style omelette dish is best served with light soy sauce and chilli sauce.

Purple Sweet Potato and Pearl Barley Sweet Soup

Purple Sweet Potato and Pearl Barley Dessert Soup01

Purple sweet potato is a kind of starchy sweet vegetables with loads of fiber. They are different from yam. In traditional Hong Kong cooking, various kinds of sweet potatoes are widely used to make desserts to serve after dinner.

When it comes to cooking purple sweet potato, it turns soft and easily broken apart within half an hour, as a result the sweet soup will become cloudy. If you care about how the sweet soup looks like, you have to control the stove power carefully. I’ve experimented and found my Instant Pot can do the best job of keeping the purple sweet potato in good shape even they’re softened enough. If you have an Instant Pot, give it a try. If you don’t, you still can make this delicious dessert on stove.
