Cooking at home

These past weeks have seen us cooking at home quite a bit.
We experimented with Bak Kut Teh (herbal pork soup). This packet of instant Bak Kut Teh ingredients contained 2 sachets of powdered herbs and spices, and 1 packet of soya sauce, enough for about 1kg of meat.

All we had to do was add meat, whole garlic bulbs, vegetables and water for a hearty Bak Kut Teh meal.

Sweet and sour (and slightly spicy) pork chops.

Long beans and coriander omellete.

Garlic shoots with prawns in spicy, peppery, oyster sauce.

And last night, we had baked chicken marinated with blended "stuff" (lemongrass, ginger, onions, chillies, garlic, turmeric, lime, sugar, sesame oil, Shiaoxing wine, fish sauce, santan), with sides of mashed potatoes and stirfried garlic french beans.
