Use a food processor to grind red yeast rice so it will dissolve easily with the bright red color. Red yeast rice is mainly used to make Chinese wine, but it is also good for coloring. You can get it from Chinese supermarket.

Sauce: Mix all the ingredients in a cooking pan and heat up with medium high heat until boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 more minutes. Cool down.
This sauce is good for 300g of pork. Marinate the thin sliced pork (you can use any of your favor part of pork) with the sauce and leave them in the refrigerator overnight for the best flavor.
Hang the pork inside the oven with the help of paper clips. Make sure leave a baking sheet or something on the bottom with some water in it for the drippings. Roast the meat with 400F for 20-25 minutes. (Adjust the time according to how thin you slice your meat) This sauce is also good for ribs and wings. The finish product is very tender and kind of crisp with each bite. It is much better than buying from the restaurant.

Pavlova

IMG_9265

I got this recipe from allrecipes.com. I only have strawberries and black berries at home, so I didn’t do it with kiwis.

Original recipe makes 1 pavlova Change Serving

4 egg whites

1 1/4 cups white sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1 pint heavy cream

6 kiwi, peeled and sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw a 9-inch circle on the parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gradually add in the sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat until thick and glossy. Gently fold in vanilla extract, lemon juice, and cornstarch.
  3. Spoon mixture inside the circle drawn on the parchment paper. Working from the center, spread mixture toward the outside edge, building edge slightly. This should leave a slight depression in the center.
  4. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. In a small bowl, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form; set aside. Remove the paper, and place meringue on a flat serving plate. Fill the center of the meringue with whipped cream, and top with kiwifruit slices.
