No Knead, No Bake...Steamed Bread 免揉免烤...蒸面包



No....they aren't Huat Kueh...they are BREAD! I made these last week when my mixer was out of order. 

No need to knead the dough, simple method and effortless. I was not in the mood of baking so I steamed the bread instead of bake in the oven. My second attempt, I air-fried with my Tefal Actifry. Yeah... really not in the mood of baking...lol... Click here for air-fry or bake bread recipe.

The steamed version looks super funny.....because I was too greedy to dump in too much dough into each cup, they rose so high that almost touch the lid of my steamer. But the texture was fine and soft....hmm... half bread half cake texture. Something light and for those who wants to make bread but don't have an oven, can give this a try... a very healthy steamed bread :)

My HOME Soy Milk, Plain 自制豆奶, 原味



After I read some cases of 'undefined' objects in the packet soy milk, I dare not use store bought soy milk anymore...Yeah, this is me, especially preparing food for my little boy, I always be 'extra careful' in sourcing ingredients and fresh food. 

My boy and I not especially like to drink soy milk. So the soy milk that I made is to make bean curd and soy pudding. Sometimes I'd make some Chocolate Flavored Soy Milk for myself. My boy prefer milk than soy milk but he likes food that made of soy milk. lol...

Christmas Theme Sail Boat Jelly 圣诞帆船果冻


Not sharing recipe, just sharing something that we've done and it's fun. Another dessert made by my 5 year old. Just the jelly, NOT the orange sail boat lol.... It's really not easy to dig the flesh out from the oranges. This is not my idea, it's one of the CBeebies 'I Can Cook' show foodie. My boy watched it and again wrote down the recipe... This time, his 'recipe' is clearer compared to the Carrot & Pumpkin Cookie recipe. Can you read this?


1. You need oranges and grapes
2. Cut grape into half
3. Put grapes into orange sail boat
4. Need to prepare a JUG with water (he draw the jug)
5. Need some Gelatin
6. Mix gelatin with water
7. Pour into the orange sail boat
8. He forgot what he draw.
9. Put the orange sail boat in muffin pan and get a grown up to keep it in the fridge!
10. Make and put the mast.
Frankly, I can't read this....he explained to me and I wrote it down here as a piece of memory that is PRECIOUS to me and my boy :)


Ingredients: (Yield 2), recipe adapted from CBeebies website

6 seedless Grapes
1 Orange, cut in half, flesh removed, skin shell reserved 
50ml Warm Water
1 tsp Gelatin
100 ml Orange Juice (I used apple juice)

Method:
1. 
Cut grape into half

2. 
Put the grapes in the orange shell

3. 
Add gelatin in warm water

4. 
Stir until the gelatin fully dissolved.

5. 


Mix gelatin mixture with fruit juice. Pour evenly into both orange shells.

6. 

Keep in a container and store in the fridge until it set. I leave it overnight in the fridge.
7. Decorate as desired.... My boy did his cute version Jolly Roger lol... The christmas tree done by me, I just stick everything that he cut out from his Jolly Roger on my christmas tree... :) Simple and fun activity with kid.

用筷子,把鸡蛋稍微大撒,加入步骤1的豆奶,搅拌均匀。

4. Steam for 5 minutes. 蒸5分钟即可。该怎么配搭才好吃呢?下面有个提议。。



Before .... 蒸之前


After steamed. Silky smooth! 蒸好了!

Updated 1 April 2015


Photo updated 1 April 2015, I'm not good in handling/ slicing bean curd.
So, leave the bean curd alone in the dish and topped with minced meat is the best way for me, instead of slicing and frying. 

Updated 1 April 2015, Healthier and tastier!
This time, I used slightly sweet soy bean milk, omit the sugar.
Sweet in taste to pair with the savory minced meat toppings. Superb!
提议这个配搭:香炒耗油虾米肉碎配自制蛋豆腐  (上图),豆腐带少许甜味,配上惹味的虾米肉碎,配饭,简直是无敌。若喜欢我的食谱,可以LIKE和追随我的面书专页,不要错过最新食谱发布。

Easy Homemade Pork Floss, cooked in skillet 自制猪肉松,只用平底锅



My dad used the leftover meat from the soup to make pork floss all the times. He bake bread 2-3 times a week and he used the pork floss as fillings. My boy loves grandpa's homemade pork floss bread and I know I'm gonna learn this some day. 

Here comes my experiment on pork floss making. This pork floss recipe is less sweet compared to the store bought pork floss. I try not to add so much sugar because it's made for my little boy. I customized this taste to go with sweet bread and porridge. If you happened to read my blog here and would like to try this recipe, do adjust the taste with your personal preference. 

If you are curious to know how I made up the ingredients, see here:


I made my version of pork floss based on this... I have 2 recipes here, one is less sweet that I make to pair with porridge and the improved version tastes more like the store bought pork floss. 
The pork floss filled in this container is not store bought :)


The improved version, updated on 27 December 2014


~ COOKED IN NON STICK PAN ~ 

Ingredients:

300g Meat (boneless) 

Note: I reserved the meat from the soup bones. Right after the soup bones are cooled, use a small fork to remove the meat and keep in a freezer safe container. Store in the freezer and accumulate the meat (up to a week). Alternatively, you can use fresh meat, boiled and make the pork floss.



Seasoning:

45g Sugar 

30g Fish Sauce 

15g Light Soy Sauce 

24g Water

如果您要分享此食谱,请联系这个部落格的相关链接。敬请不要复制或改篇为自己的食谱。谢谢!

Method:
1. Add seasoning to meat. Mix well. 


At this stage, the meat should smells good and you can taste it and adjust your seasoning to taste. If it doesn't smells good, discard the meat immediately. I do not responsible for any food poisoning cases. :)
2. Cover with cling wrap and let it marinate for 30 minutes. 

3. Heat a non stick pan, low - medium heat. Cook the marinated meat, stir constantly until dry and fluffy. About 30 minutes. 


Just started to cook....



After 10 minutes...

After 20 minutes... adjust to very low heat when the meat started to dry up.


The last few minutes...
4. Remove from heat. Spread on a baking pan and let it cooled. If you like my recipe, click hereLIKE & follow my facebook page to receive more recipe updates. Don't forget to change the setting to 'SEE FIRST' if you wish to see my post on your Facebook news feed. Enjoy!



Updated 27 December 2014

I visited my dad last week and got some very useful advice from him. Here's my revised and improved version of pork floss using a cast iron pan. This can be cooked in a wok. This version is less salty and sweeter in taste, more crisp and no soup smells at all. The good thing is....I can use the leftover meat from any soup :)

平底锅~自制猪肉松~反正煮汤的肉没人吃,用煮了汤的肉做猪肉松,不用花时间把猪肉煮软,即不浪费时间也不浪费食物。除此,你也可以用新鲜的肉,煮软后炒干。

Ingredients: 


230g Meat (boneless, rinse and drain/ squeeze to remove the smell from the soup)
煮熟的肉 230克,冲一冲水,挤干


Seasoning: 调味料

4 tbsp Sugar 
细砂糖 4汤匙

2 tbsp Fish Sauce 
鱼露 2汤匙

1tbsp Light Soy Sauce (optional, omit this if cooking for young children/ elderly)
酱油 1汤匙,喜欢少咸的可以不放


1tbsp Water 
水 1汤匙

步骤:

1. 把所有调味料搅拌均匀。

2. 加入已处理好的肉,混合均匀。盖上,腌30分钟。

3. 放进平底锅,小火炒大概30分钟或至干。即可。若喜欢我的食谱,可以LIKE和追随我的面书专页,不要错过最新食谱发布。

Photo updated 22 April 2015 Looks pale in colour? Nope, just different lighting in the kitchen. :) 




Updated 14 January 2015


The last batch of pork floss that I made was kept in a container and stored in the freezer for about 3 weeks.  Still taste good! I warm it in the skillet and topped on a toast. 

The texture? Crisp and MELT IN MOUTH!
