The upper portion of the pork hock (the lower portion was cooked last week).

This time, after the hock was cooked, added about a third of a can of mushroom gravy.


Pork hock, tree ear fungus, ginger, apple cider vinegar, gravy, no peanuts this time.

Pork Hock Soup/Stew

More soup than stew, The Mouse didn’t want to put in so much gravy to make the pot so thick but maybe not enough. That’s okay, with gravy, less is better. At least according to The Cat.

Also, to those that made the ultimate sacrifice … a heartfelt thank you.

No recipe, after the usual par boil and wash, added wood ear fungus, ginger, vinegar, and peanuts.

For The Cat’s noodles, The Mouse added whit stemmed cabbage and some leftover dan dan noodle soup (for flavor).

The Cat needed to run an errand early afternoon. Early dinner. The Cat and The Mouse used to frequent this place but the location changed and it became “out of the way”.

The Place

The Cat ordered oxtail soup.

Oxtail Soup

Tasty, broth a bit on the thinner side.

The Mouse ordered beef stew.

Beef Stew Bowl

The Mouse wants to experience the different beef stew recipes. Irish style beef stew (with stout?), local beef stew. Next, boeuf bourguignon? Have to locate a French chef willing. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
