Fried Bean Sprout

There is no vegetable left in the fridge so grabbed 2 pieces of white tofu and some bean sprouts from a mini market nearby my home after work to complement with a chicken dish. Firstly, deep fry the white tofu, sliced and put aside. Heat up the wok with oil, add chopped garlic, sliced carrots, spring onion, bean sprout and salt to taste. Stir fry for about 5 - 7 minutes. Garnish with fried shallots.

Steamboat Dinner

Hubby's colleagues arranged for a steamboat dinner party at our place. His boss supplied most of the ingredients (very generous supply that can last for another meal!) and we prepare the soup and food arrangement. A satisfying meal complete with soft drinks topped with Baskin Robbins vanilla ice-cream - supplied by his colleagues too.

Steamed pork with soy bean paste

This is one of my favorite dish since young and is now my hubby's favorite too. Most importantly it's easy and fast to cook.

500g pork (cut into cubes)
3 tbsp soy bean paste
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp sugar
5 red-eye chilli

Mix the pork with cornstarch and soy bean paste and place it on a steam plate. Sprinkle the sugar and red-eye chilli on it and steam for 10 minutes. Serve hot.
