Chap Chye T’ng (Clear Mix Vegetable Soup)

Another refreshing soup for another hot humid day. The title speaks all, vegetable, vegetable and more vegetables! Soup base is pork shoulder and fried cuttlefish boiled in a stock pot with a piece of ginger and some crushed peppercorns. Simmer on slow heat till pork shoulder is tender (approx. 1 hour). Fish it out and set aside to cool. Will be used as soup meat later

Pan-fried “Sek Pan” steak

'Garlic Oil' to me is what 'Szechuan peppercorn' is to Kylie Kwong. I can never NOT have garlic oil ready at my disposal in my kitchen at anytime. I stir it in my noodles, drizzle over my hot porridge, steam dishes, steamboat meals, garnishing over fish, blanche vegetables, steam chicken etc. the list goes on. In short, it is a must have.
