Braised Pork Knuckles with Sea Cucumber 海參豬腳, a CNY lunch


** re-post due to some error in earlier post **

Before i go back to my mom's place to celebrate the 9th day of CNY- Pai Tin Kong this evening. I would like to share with you the best Braised Pork Knuckles with Sea cucumbers ( a must have dish during CNY) from my mon (she actually learnt from my Aunt). I cooked this dish when my husband invited his brothers and sisters (around 30 peoples !!) to our house on the 6th day of CNY. I started to prepare Braised Pork knuckles on the 5th day as this dish need longer cooking time.

Pineapple rolls (Nastar) 凤梨酥, Happy Lunar New Year


I think is time for me to "Sou Kong" and take a short break from blogging and enjoy the Dragon New Year. Yesterday i did my last batch of baking (maybe not the last, i'm not sure ^_^)of pineapple rolls. I still using back my old recipe and made little changes and resulted a very flaky and buttery pineapple rolls. So far, I have not seen a pineapple tart or rolls that same like my recipe which requires only 4 ingredients, Butter, Condensed Milk, Flour and Egg yolk, cheap and easy ! The other day Jane came over to my house, and I heard she talked to someone who asking for pineapple tart recipe, and she told her to use Sonia's condensed milk pineapple tart recipe, hahaha!

Asam Chai Ber ( Braised Sour Roast meat with Chinese mustard) 菜尾



I would considered this Asam Chai Ber is one of the Chinese New Year dish. This is a dish that using leftover roasted meat (pork, chicken, duck, lamb , beef & etc) especially during Chinese New Year, and braise with Chinese mustard (Kai Choy), a lot of tamarind peels (that why this dish called Asam means sour) and dried chilies..You will be wondering why i can cook this Chai Ber since another 2 weeks only we celebrating CNY..Because I have a lot of leftover roasted lamb from a party which was held in my house on last Sunday.
