37-hour Mom-style Sweet Soy Sauce Pork

One of my family’s winning dishes honed. Nothing so fancy – ginger, garlic, soy sauce, oyster sauce, pork ribs. Cooked for 37 hours sous vide then seared under broiler. The meat melted in my mouth, the sauce infused the rice, the ginger transformed into a sweet kick, the pork fat and gelatin mixed with the sauce.

Rice Chicken Porridge / “Bubur Ayam” (< $1) – Food Experience, Indonesia

One of the most famous breakfast for Indonesians, what people would eat in their pijamas at the nearest hawkers to their houses. The main component is rice porridge, which you can taste the sweetness of rice sugars thanks to the break down (heat & hydrolysis) of the carbohydrates. It is combined sith the saltiness of soy sauce, savoriness of shredded lean chicken meat, a kick from chopped tangy celery, and sharp white pepper powder.

Birthday Green Chilli Rendang

Since today, it’s not about my self anymore. It’s about what kind of happiness I can bring to everyone around me. Finding cooking as a way, I decided to make this authentic Indonesian food from scratch for my beloved friends and family here. With no less than 10 ingredients from 3 different stores and 7 hours of cooking, I have been through one of the happiest serving moment in my life.

Mom-summoning Hainanese Chicken Rice

The chicken breasts in my fridge was 1 week old, and this is what I did to save them. Again, mom sent me the recipe through WhatsApp and I combined it with high-rated ones in Google.

It was also my first time to make it, didn’t know that it is so artistic to grill the rice with the spices before boiling it.

Rice – soup – chicken, rice – soup – chicken. I tried to contain that mom-summoning taste from those three components. Would definitely make this again, with whole chicken.

Chicken. Garlic. Ginger. Buillon. Leeks. Soy sauce. Sesame oil. Rice.
