After the lala miso soup, my second dish for this year’s reunion dinner is Hong Kong Kailan with Roasted Pork. This is actually the first time I made this dish, though had it a few times at various restaurants, usually with Choi Tam (Brussels Sprout). I would usually have my vegetables fried only with garlic, but since this is the year of pig, why not a spice it up with some roasted pork?
this dish sure looks yummy, isn’t it?
- Hong Kong kailan
- roasted pork (RM 3-5, from morning market or hawker)
- sliced or chopped garlic
- corn flour
- cooking oil
- heat up a few spoons of cooking oil
- throw in the garlic and then roasted pork, stir
- add in the vegetabl ewhen the garlic gets golden, shoots first, then the leaves
- add some salt for flavor (half a tea spoon should suffice)
- pour in the mixture of corn flour and water (2 table spoon of corn flour and half a cup of water)
- stir till vegetable is cooked
cooking this is easy as 1-2-3
The dish was pretty easy to prepare, and it did turn out great. The aroma of roasted pork complimented the fresh vegetable really well. Corn flour and water gives a slightly salty gravy that makes eating this dish with steamed rice a very good combination. Try it!
