Food Friday: BBQ Pork Riblets

This is the first time my kid hosts a sleepover. Well, just one kid anyway. I cooked chicken curry last night but it seems the kiddo‘s friend isn’t friendly with curry and coriander. Breakfast’s not so much a problem as they’re all good with toast and butter and maple syrup and hot chocolate. But lunch…. ahh. I re-think the whole lunch plan. I kinda put myself in their shoes and think of things I would like. I like lots of meat and something sweet.

Voila! Boneless pork riblets with tangy BBQ sauce, steamed beans, sunny-side up eggs and fried rice. What could go wrong? Nothing! They couldn’t stop saying… “ang sarap!.” They had a wonderful lunch; finished every last bit of rice.

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.

    ps. regarding the puto recipe, am not so sure if it’s any good, since our helper only uses those few ingredients that i mentioned (and I love the simplicity of the taste … ); quite unlike the one in the link that i posted.
