    • The aunties have been talking about a makan thread since forever ...

      oh well .. I'll start the ball rolling with my roasted pork shoulder then ... Razz

      Name: Bavarian Roasted Pork Shoulders and Knuckles
      cooking time: 2 to 4 hours, depending on portion

      ingredients:

      Pork Knuckles (I bought a whole shoulder instead)
      1 x can of beer (use a light lager)
      some cooking port wine
      sugar
      salt
      honey
      corn starch
      butter
      cumin
      thyme
      1 x tablespoon of pepper corns
      2 x pieces bay leaves
      3 x stick celery
      2 x carrots
      2 x small onions
      1 x stalk of leek

      recipe:
      1. boil the meat in a large stock pot with all the diced vegetables and half a can of beer and liberal splashes of the port wine, for at least 1.5 hours, but until the meat is semi cooked, white but with still some blood in it. throw in pepper corns, thyme, bay leaves, sugar and salt according to taste.

      2. heat up oven to 300 degrees, cover roasting pan with butter, extract and dry knuckles from pot, place on roasting pa

      3. mix corn starch, beer, honey, and some of the meat stock from boiling into a bowl. brush liberally onto meat

      4. roast for 2 hours, reapplying above mixture every 10 minutes, throw cumin onto roast after applying mixture.

      5. voila ! ... serve with boiled kantang, and lots and lots of (german ? ) beer... boiled vegetables and stock makes a good thick soup too ... Razz

      oh yeah ... the crispy, crackling skin is the best part, so don't throw them away eh ! ... Razz

      tiger shrimps is optional

      sometimes my mum dont put in meat, but the vegetables mix is frighteningly ubiquitous

      not forgetting the tang hoon as well

      me no like meat so NEVER put meat. i have tiger shrimps and dried chinese mushrooms. and yes, tang hoon. and if not meat hor, actually, soup not so tasty, right? my compensation is onions. grind them, fry and then ngau for a while.
