I wanted to try this dish ever since I saw it appeared on fellow blogger's blogs. But I couldn't try it because I couldn't find waxed duck or waxed pork belly here. So, most of the times I could only imagine the taste. However, my chance came when our friend who's the restaurant owner served us a plate of mixed waxed meat that her head chef prepared in her own kitchen. Wow, lucky us! The head chef made a combination of waxed duck, waxed pork belly and waxed sausages. I took some leftover of the waxed duck and sausage as I found the waxed pork belly too fattening. Alright, alright, you can say I don't know how to appreciate the best part, I agreed, I agreed. :-P
Traditionally to until these days, waxed meat delicacies is one of the must have items to welcome the Chinese Lunar New Year. Usually served on CNY eve on the reunion table and throughout the CNY. Lots of shops will be selling waxed meat products in their stores during this time. Many buy them as gift for relatives and friends as well.
I steamed the rice in my electric steamer and once it's almost cooked, I placed the waxed meat on top. It was so fragrant and the juices from the waxed meat seep into the rice. I loved it! I also loved the waxed duck that the chef prepared, very flavorful. My little Edda loved this rice a lot too, both of us finished the most part of it as my hubby doesn't like waxed meat at all. Hehe...more for us.
