Penang Lobak (meat rolls)_2017 CNY_ 槟城炸卤肉卷_金鸡报春

This is a real Penang Lobak that shared by my Penang friend's mother. When i first tasted this yummy rolls, I immediately requested for the recipe, and glad that her mom so kind sharing with me of her truly Penang Lobak recipe with her special method (scroll down to see what special ^_^). And this roll is perfectly to serve during CNY.

It is advise to use Kap Sum Yok (in Cantonese), the meat near the neck part. This part of meat is tender and nice.

Cut into short and thin strips

Add in diced jicama and onions

What special in her recipe? She use Hoen Kwe (green bean flour) and also try to use good and nice five spices powder. I used this brand that she bought all the way from Penang for me, Thank you very much auntie !

Another special method from her, place a spring onion in a roll. So clever of her !
