Hmong Caramelised Red Braised Pork (Nqaij Qab Zib)

Posted by Kroocrew on Sunday, April 3, 2011, In : Hmong 




Red braised pork hails from China. The red is produced by the prolonged braising in a Soy sauce product and suggests an illustrious food. An interpretation and local preparation of this Chinese food extends into Vietnam and Thailand and of course down into  Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Like many multi-spiced meat dishes, this dish noticeably matures and improves with a delay in the period of production and eating. For this reason the recommendation of overnight storage is suggested.

Wu Gok as it's presented.


Inside the Wu Gok.
The external crispy net like coat with the moist very soft mashed taro batter enclosing the mixed pork, mushroom and shrimp filling.

The Taro dumpling is quite different to most other dumplings. The flavour is familiar but the texture is unique. The soft taro batter on the inside is rich and almost creamy. It has a "cold" element which is difficult to describe but is noticeable when eating it. The texture is changing all the way through and I think...

Tahini Miso Hotpot そえ味噌鍋 (Soe Miso Nabe)

Posted by Kroocrew on Thursday, February 24, 2011, In : Japan 




Nabe meals are a familiar food in Japan particularly during winter. The Nabe sits on the table cooker and diners add and eat the meal as it cooks. At the end of the solid contents then often there is added some noodles to the remaining broth and this is then cooked and eaten. A delicious dinner with no rules. The pot or Nabe is traditionally an earthenware dish and this may be the only thing that is proscribed. The variation in this recipe is the addition of tahini which increases the creami...

Seasoned Soy Concentrate (Shojin Tsuyu No Moto)

Posted by Kroocrew on Tuesday, December 14, 2010, In : Japan 



This is quite a remarkable ingredient. I think that it's probably only in the hmemade domain and it satisfies many purposes. As a super Soy Sauce this can't be beaten. It can be diluted down if it's too strong for a given purpose. It's also preservative and additive free.

Shojin Tsuyu Moto can be used as a soup base and in the same vein as dashi or it can be used to actually make a dashi from. Any recipe that calls for Soy sauce as an ingredient would benefit from this. It really is packed u...

Mushroom Stalk Floss Condiment

Posted by Kroocrew on Tuesday, March 9, 2010, In : Myanmar

Dehydrated shitake mushrooms have a stalk that doesn't soften on rehydration. Instructions invariably direct you to remove and discard the stalk.

Ingredients:
  • 50g dried mushroom stalks
