Twice Cooked Pork



I bought some family size pork recently. It turned out some pieces had more fat than the other. I noticed some with three layers of fat too. Normally I would cut away all the fat, but how to cut when it had three layers of fat in between? So, instead of spent too much time slicing away the fat, I just cut them into pieces. Since these were some fatty pork, I thought of preparing them like in twice cooked pork.


First, I boiled them in boiling water until cooked. Then, drained and set aside. As for the ingredients, I used red bell pepper, scallion, dried red chili, garlic, LKK premium dark soy sauce, soy sauce, sugar, white pepper and sesame oil.


Can I say YUMMY!

Do you know what this is good with, a bottle of ice cold beer!

Thank you Jenn. :)

Thanks js and sinful too. :P

You're welcome mikky. Definitely good with white rice!

Thanks Amanda. :)

Rita, I'm pretty clueless myself. But I know this is called "three layers pork", the one people buy to make roast pork (siew york). I can understand Cantonese but cannot speak well, so not sure how to say that in Cantonese. Sorry。 :P Maybe you should tell the butcher you want the pork with three layers of fat that people buy to make siew york. ;)

Then you should certainly give this a try, Dhanggit. ;)

Hahaha Ning's Mummy. Fatty pork sure tastes good and thanks.

Thanks Kristen. :)

Hi! i tried to do something similar to yours but all the time i was boiling them it seemed that the pork never turned white. for some reason it got red. i did not know how long i had to put them in for. it seemed like i cooked it for quite some time.

did you boil them for like an hour?

Little Corner of Mine said...

What Anon? It turned red instead of white? That is totally weird, please make sure the pork you bought doesn't have red coloring added to it to make it looks fresh or something. For your question, I didn't boil it for a long time at all, probably only 15 minutes, just to cook the pork (can't see blood anymore).
