Following the previous recipe on soya chicken dish made with Angel soya sauce and Angel Oyster sauce. I thought of trying out a recipe with their Sriracha hot chili sauce. I was browsing reddit just happened to came upon an entry on GifRecipes featuring roast chicken that uses sriracha sauce as seasoning, so I thought, why not try something similar?

So here is my roast chicken with Angel Sriracha hot chili sauce recipe.

Ingredients (main):

  • 4-5 tablespoon of Angel Sriracha hot chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoon equal portion of brown sugar
  • 2 chicken quarter (leg part)
  • 1 bulb of garlic (dice)
  • capsicum
  • 2 red onion
  • 100 gram shiitake mushroom (optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoon of butter

Ingredients (sides):

  • 1 potato
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 slice of pumpkin
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Cooking instructions (side):

  • cut the root vegetables into cubes and put in baking pan
  • add olive oil, salt, and pepper
  • heat up oven to 200 Celsius and bake for 35 mins

It’s good to start this first and put it in oven, take the additional 15 mins or so to prepare for the main dish and have everything in the oven done at the same time since the chicken will take some 20 minutes in the oven.

Mix all up in a plate and serve!

I found that Angel Sriracha hot chili sauce is probably slightly spicier than those I’ve had before, and that suits me just fine. With brown sugar and oven heat treatment, the sauce gave the roast chicken skin a pretty sweet and spicy note which compliments the meat very well. There’s no condiments on the side necessary at all for this dish. I’m glad that it worked out pretty well.

You can always modify the side dishes a little to suit your need for this dish, give it a try!

When it comes to a Malaysian kitchen, soya sauce and oyster sauce are some of the most important ingredients for cooking. I must admit that I used to be one of those people who doesn’t think twice and choose the closest shelve at the grocery store when buying those sauces. What I failed to realised tho, is that these sauces aren’t make alike at all.

Last week, I was given a few bottles of some of our favorite sauces by Bidor Kwong Heng to try out – Angel Soya Sauce, Angel Oyster Sauce, and Angel Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. These sauces are made from non-GMO ingredients and obtained international food safe certificates.

I’m made a couple dishes with these sauces in their ingredients to try them out. First – soya sauce chicken.

The dish turned out pretty good, Angel soya sauce and oyster sauce did a good job in adding a hint of complexity with its umami while not being overly salty. The chicken goes best with porridge especially if you mix the sauces all in. Enjoy!

This is a pretty simple recipe, and you can also substitute chicken with other white meat as well. I’d usually have this with some chili padi and soya sauce, but whatever rocks your boat!

When it comes to steaks, quality of cut is often directly correlated with satisfaction in eating them, and unfortunately, so is the asking price. To “solve” this problem, sous vide is often the most recommended solution – cook the beef in a slow and controlled temperature, and you’ll get almost any cut to be tender.

Sounds good, right? But here’s the catch – sous vide machines can be very pricey, and I’m not about to spend upwards of RM 1,000 – 2,000 without really knowing what I get myself into.

Enter McGyver inspired cooler-box sous vide solution. (well, I actually read this from another website)

all you need is a thermometer and a cooler box
all you need is a thermometer and a cooler box

For this method, you only need the following 3 crucial items

  • cooler box
  • ziplock bag (freezer type recommended as they’re usually stronger)
  • cooking thermometer

Now let’s look at how to make your own sous vide beef & chicken.

Instructions:

  • season your meat with salt and pepper, or any other desired seasoning
  • place them in zip lock bags
  • prepare hot water 2-3 Celsius above your desired internal temperature for the meat (example: slightly less than 60 C for medium rare beef, 75-80 Celsius for chicken)
  • lower the meat-bags and shake off excess air pockets before zip locking it
  • monitor every half an hour, if temperature drop below desired level, add hot water to bring it up
  • let the meat cook for an hour or two, depending on the thickness

  • use the thermometer to ensure that internal meat temperature is appropriate
  • for beef, heat up skillet (I use an IKEA one) to high temperature, then sear for a minute on each side before serving, a blow torch will do similar wonder for chicken breasts
  • add your side dishes, and eat away!

The results we got were amazing. Relatively cheap cuts of grass fed beef had the texture not entirely unlike tenderloin, and for the first time in my life, I actually enjoyed chicken breasts as it came out succulent and moist.

Will do it again!

When I was a student in the States years ago, I remember one of the things we always struggle to find when it comes to cooking ingredients is santan, or coconut milk.

I mean, if you’re a Malaysian, you got to have curry, and to make curry and a host of other Malaysian dishes, santan is often a key ingredients. Back in the days, we had to substitute santan with milk, so  you can imagine how happy I would have been if I had access to something like S&P Santan instant coconut cream powder back then.

A couple weeks ago, I was invited to attend the I love S&P Santan Cooking Workshop with Chef Andri to check out some of the products from S&P Industries as well as getting our hands wet at the kitchen learning from the good chef in making three different dishes.

A little bit on S&P Industries Sdn Bhd.

S&P Industries is the pioneer in coconut milk powder manufacturing in Malaysia since 1983 and is the world’s largest producer of coconut milk powder with distributions to more than 40 countries.

Their Santan Instant Coconut Milk Powder is made 100% from fresh coconut, does not have preservative or artificial coloring.

The coconut milk powder comes in 50 gram sachets in original, omega, & pandan. They also have coconut milk coming in 200 ml and 1 liter packs.

We had a lot of fun at FFM Marketing’s kitchen with the lively Chef Andri showing off his three recipes – an appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert.

I really liked how versatile the coconut cream powder was, it is very easy and convenient to use compared to traditional method. Simply add in the powder while cooking and let it dissolve. The S&P Sejati Desiccated Coconut also came in very handy for making desserts and other dishes, the longer shell life is most helpful too.

With Lex from KampungBoyCityGal as my partner (we called our team Kampung Utara), we competed with other teams in creating these dishes, and although we did not win, I think we can claim that we made some of the best looking dishes among the contestants. If you aren’t the best, try to look the best, right?

I also like the choice of venue, the FFM cooking facility located at Sungai Buloh is really well equipped. In fact we were the first group of people to get to use it. The venue is open to rental too, do contact marketing@ffmb.com.my or 03-61457888 for inquiries.

The recipes from Chef Andri are shared below so you can give them a try at home.
