Sweet Crispy Pork Belly

这道菜是家里有人特别要求做的。 我不会,这是我爸爸的拿手菜,他今年在美国和我们过年。 我弟弟说了很多年了要吃。 说出来是什么的话可能有人要说现在谁还吃这个! 这个东西吃的就是回忆吧, 还真不敢多吃! 不过吃一两块的还真有那么一点童年的味道。 我应该有30多年没吃了(暴露年纪了。) 全肥的猪肉炸过后,包了一层糖沙! 我们都吃出了爱了! 肥猪肉在油里炸几分钟。 糖和水 5 :1 煮开, 煮到冒大泡泡很黏,没有水了但还没变色的时候把肥猪肉倒进去拌匀了就可以了。 过一会儿它外边就很酥脆了,外酥里嫩!我弟吃了3块,高兴的!!

Radish Cake/萝卜糕


Radish cake is one of very traditional Chinese new year dishes. It is very easy to make, if you like taro, you can use same  technique to cook taro cake.

Rice flour 1 pound

Corn starch 1/2 pound

Dried shrimp+ dried scallop 1/3 cup

Medium dried mushroom 8 pieces

Chinese sausage 1/2 cup

Chinese preserved pork belly 1/3 cup

Chinese celery 2 cup

Chinese white radish 2.5 pounds

Water 9 cups

Salt 2 tsps

Chicken bouillon 2tsps

white pepper 1/2 tsp

Oil 4 tbsps


Wash dried shrimp, scallop and mushroom then soak in water overnight.

Reserved the water for soaking shrimp, scallop and mushroom.

Cut everything really fine.

Peel the radish, then use a shredder to shred the radish. Squeeze the water out of the radish ( preserve the water for later use)

Add total 9 cups of water to the rice flour and corn starch ( including the water from the radish and the water used to soak seafood and mushroom) and stir until all mix well, add 2 tbsps oil to it.

Add 2 tbsps oil to a hot cooking wok, add the meat to it and sauteed for 2 minutes, then add the shrimp, scallop and mushroom and continue to sauteed for 3 minutes, add the Chinese celery, shredded radish and the rest of spices and continue to cook for 3-4 minute.

Slowly add the flour water mixture to the wok, Turn the heat to medium and continuously stir the mixture, it will be very thin at the beginning, then it will get thicker and thicker.

Turn the heat off when there is no visible liquid.

Add the mixture to 3- 8″ greased cake pans, spread the surface evenly.

Steam them over the boiling water for about 40 minutes or until when you stick a toothpick to the center, no white color batter coming out. (the batter has to be clear, not white color)

When you want to eat the radish cake, pan fry thin slice cakes with medium heat for 2 minutes each side. You can use some oyster sauce for dipping. I love to add some hot sauce for dipping.
