The oxtail. Part II.

After the parboil (about 30 minutes), drained, cooled, and refrigerated.

Trimmed the outside fat (think fat cap).

Into the pot. Oxtail, tree ear fungus, heavy soy sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, vodka, orange extract, ginger. Slow simmer for about an hour, add peanuts, more slow simmer for another 90 minutes, add turnip and bamboo shoot, more simmer for another hour or so.

Braised Oxtail Stew – Asian Flavor

The Mouse style.

Right now, the stew is resting in the refridge for at least overnight to let the flavors and liquid soak and distribute.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Bonus points, fun movie with fun/scary actor as lead.

The Mouse went with the BLT.

BLT

One of the better BLT sandwiches in awhile (just The Mouse’s opinion). Bread was a tiny bit thick, wish it was a few centimeters thinner. But still nom!

The Mouse, prepping The Cat’s bento for this week.

We have shoyu pork! Hee hee.

Mentioned in previous posts, recently picked up pork belly and dark soy sauce.

Prepped the pork belly (washed, pre-simmered, washed, refrigerated, cubed).

Medium high heat, oil, brown sugar (although I think I didn’t add enough sugar), pork belly, dark soy, regular soy, Shao Xing wine, water to cover. Simmer two hours.

Shoyu Pork!

Didn’t come out as “red” as I would have hoped, and I didn’t reduce the sauce for that “mahogany” glaze, but The Cat said the taste was there.

With the extra sauce, I simmered dried sliced shiitake, wood ear fungus, and canned bamboo shoot.

Side Dish

I thought about doing everything together but decided against it, the flavors might get all mixed up.

The Cat’s bento entrée this week. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
