When I was in Grade 5, my friend and I would usually have lunch at the school’s cafeteria for just Php 5.00. For that amount, we bought ourselves 2 cups of rice, a little bowl of soup, and probably about … Continue reading Orange Glazed Porkchops
Weekends are when I cook what I think is special for my boys. ‘Special’ may mean less vegetables and more ‘kiddy crunchy.’ This time, I gave them Japanese – Tonkatsu with miso soup. I know how much they like this … Continue reading Tonkatsu (Breaded Pork Cutlets)
PWEDE MAKIKAIN? I could not sleep. My adrenaline from today’s rush shot up to the roof, and I couldn’t seem to shake it off. Today was unexpectedly bad! My agency asked me to cover a kitchen with no ‘Chef’ in … Continue reading Sancocho
I admit there are times that I talk non-stop to my boys about healthy food, balance diet and eating more vegetables. Yada yada yada. But there are also times when I think we should be forgiven for the occasional guilty … Continue reading Braised Pork Belly
I’ve been distracted these past few days, having found out that 20 of my blog posts were stolen by a person whose computer keyboard labels for Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V must have been erased due to too much “research work”. He … Continue reading Homemade Garlicky Pork Patties
Habang naghihintay sa doktor nakita ko sa isang magazine ang recipe ng pork sesame stir-fry… Continue reading Sesame Pork Teriyaki Stir-fry
I call this Vietnamese curry as I based it on a my Asian cookbook’s Vietnamese chicken recipe. On how authentic it is I have no idea… Continue reading Vietnamese Curry
After the success of my garlicky lemon-parsley chicken, I thought it might be great idea to do the same with pork. So right. Such a tasty no-rush recipe for succulent pork. You’ll love the tangy taste of lemon on melt-in-your-mouth … Continue reading Garlicky Lemon-Parsley Pork
I never really liked curry before but now I just love it! And I can’t help but experiment on different kinds. This is just one of them. Love it for its simplicity… Continue reading Pork, Long Beans and Tomato Curry
This is my first time to join Weekend Snapshot and for that, I share this dish I concocted last Saturday. […] Continue reading Weekend Snapshot: Iska’s Pork Sarciado
My 1st month back in Auckland has been really stressful, won’t elaborate on that as I don’t wanna bore you with my angst. It would be better if I just share a recipe for Lasang Pinoy 23. I am late, sorry Lorraine, but here it is… braised pork spareribs. An old photo of one I cooked back in Beijing either during a very busy day or a matter of “this-is-what’s-left-to-cook.”
This is so simple with very basic ingredients and I did pan-fry the spare ribs before slow-cooking but you can omit that part and it would taste just as good.
My teammate has resigned (oh my, oh why? should I be worried?) and yesterday lunch was some sort of a farewell gathering for him. After scanning the menu I finally ordered Singapore Fried Noodles. Wala lang. Not nice. Ba’t kaya ganon? I’ve been around frequenting Asian restaurants, canteen, even crazy noodle houses and stuff like that but I can only name 1 or 2 that are really good. Hmm… I’ve never really been around a lot anyway so I still have a lifetime to find that perfect place to quench my occasional craving. Should have been back to my regular cooking.
Crispy pata has become my craving of the week lately. How I miss crunching crispy mouth-watering pork rind with succulent meat inside. So for the meantime, I am stuck here staring tulo-laway at the photo of this crispy delight I cooked months ago back in Beijing.
My recent trip to Hebei’s capital was like taking part in a week-long celebration of a Barrio Fiesta. As we all know, the pinoy fiesta table is overflowing with food served buffet-style. Do check them out before reading this post. … Continue reading Lasang Pinoy 19 – Pork Barbecue
So you think one can’t cook a decent meal when barely coping with deadline overload? Do it my way then. For once let’s forget the quickies a.k.a. stir-fry recipes and go for leisurely cooking while working… like pork hamonado. The … Continue reading Pork Hamonado – The Real Deal
I found frozen meatballs as I was unpacking our grocery bags. Obviously A grabbed a pack as it says ‘Italian Meatballs.’ Oh well I know right away it can’t be truly Italian. I fried a ball and yeah it has some Chinese sausage flavor in it. Not bad. Not bad but definitely un-Italian. I’m quite sure if I serve them plain and fried with ketchup they’d eat only few pieces. (Or maybe I am speaking for myself hehehehe…) And so my sweet and sour sauce saves the day! Also good for lumpiang shanghai, fried chicken nuggets, etc.
