Archive for the ‘Pork’ Category

Nest door to Sunday’s steak take-out is a boba tea shop (same owner). While The Cat and The Mouse were waiting for the steak order, took a peek next door.

In addition to boba drinks, the shop also offered Taiwanese snacks and bentos. The Cat ended up ordering a pork and bamboo bento for weekday lunch.

Braised Pork with Bamboo Bento

Vegetables (various) and a tea egg. Nice spread. The Cat left a little of the pork for The Mouse to try.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Rice, pork, tomato, and carrot. Mmm. Although the pork was on the lean side, it wasn’t dry, the shop did a good job with the braise.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse experimenting. Chopped pork shoulder from the grocery store.

Chopped Pork Shoulder

Five-spice powder, salt, black pepper, shoyu, whiskey. Steamed for 45 minutes.

Not pretty, but tasty.

Steamed Pork

The Cat said although well-cooked, too much five-spice taste. The Mouse has another batch marinating, he intends to rinse the marinade, add more shoyu to counterbalance the five-spice, and try again. Experimenting.

Stay safe and well.

Sorry no post yesterday, internet went down. Good thing, The Mouse had nothing to post anyway.

The Cat’s lunch yesterday.

Pork Chop

The Cat brought home a mousie bag for The Mouse to taste. Mmm. It’s not pork belly but still enjoyed and appreciated. 🙂

The Cat also brought The Mouse dessert.

Mixed Berry Pie

An indulgence for sure. Comes ala mode which The Cat ate the ice cream on site. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Sorry, long title. Hee hee.

From yesterday’s grocery store purchase. Parboiled the spare ribs, rinsed, new clean water, simmered with vinegar, dried mushrooms. Wakame seaweed and bamboo shoot to finish. Served with thin egg noodles.

The Cat ordered pork shank for brunch yesterday.

Pork Shank, Guava Glaze

The shank was well-cooked, just a little too salty for The Cat’s taste. She took most of the shank home.

The Mouse took the bones and the connective tendons, simmered for an hour or so, added carrot and leftover rice. No added salt.

Pork Shank and Rice Soup

The salty taste was absorbed by the rice, diluting the flavor (a good thing). The Cat liked. 

The Mouse will be applying for soupmaker position at Campbell Soup. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
