Stir Fry Kailan With Roast Pork Belly

  Homegrown Kailan!!!! I am amazed at myself when I managed to successfully grow some kailan in container .Was actually trying my hands at growing some organic stuff and it turned out great.  Successful with my first batch of homegrown planting :)  So proud , and of course, I stir fried them with roast pork belly.  So sweet and crunchy. Even Wild Boar is pleased with my lil' space of edibles.  Anyway, a simple stir fry and we both enjoyed the dish very much.  From now on, I will grow more edibles.  A joy indeed to be able to harvest one's hardwork :)

 kailan can be cooked in many ways, I prefer this version of stir fry
and another delicious dish is to braise  with  yam

Stir Fry And Lightly Braised Bitter Melon

This is my all time favourite veggie dish.  After having a really scrumptious artery clogging hotpot last night, I cooked something light and appetizing for our  lunch today.  A simple stir fry and lightly braised bitter melon with some left over meat slices from last night.  Hubby loves this dish too. You can eat this with plain porridge and I did that. Cooked a pot of watery porridge and ate this aromatic dish.  Aromatic because of the fermented black beans sauted together with chopped chilli and garlic.  The scent and taste of this simple dish is so good that one dish is enough for the both of us :)

Stir Fry And Lightly Braised Bitter Melon

1 medium size bitter melon - slice into 1/4 inch thick
meat slices - I used left over meat from yesterday hotpot

1 tbsp of fermented black beans - wash and drain dry
3 cloves of garlic - chopped fine
2 bird's eye chilli - chopped fine
1.5 tbsp of rice bran oil
1/2 cup water
salt to taste


Heat up wok, add in 1.5 tbsp of rice bran oil. Once the oil is heated up, lower heat and saute garlic, fermented black beans and chilli till fragrant.  Add in the meat slices and stir fry till cooked .Add in the bitter melon slices and stir fry for 5 mins. Add in water and cover with lid and lightly braised for another 10 mins until the bitter melon is cooked. Add salt to taste. If you like to have more gravy, make half a cup of thickening to the bitter melon . Once it thickens, dish up and serve with rice or porridge.
