Kidney cooked in sesame oil , chinese wine with lots of fine ginger strips is a delicacy , that I will seldom get to eat. My Piggies will 'eeeeeewww ' over it and will give me a good lecture on it :p but I will cook this once in a blue moon , when they are not around that is . Maybe because of my chinese upbringing ( chinese are known to eat everything out of my ' relative pig ' and not waste anything ) I still tend to crave for this once in a while :p The new generation of chinese will not touch this anymore or rather the organs of
our relative pigs the pig ! Reason is obvious....... lol! I think I will not put into words or I myself will not want to eat it.... when I crave for it , I will conveniently forget what part this is ! :p Oh btw, Joanna bought a kidney pie from the one of the supermart in Sheffield and I was SURPRISED ! Someone who once said ' Eeeeeewwww' to me :p
I saw some kidneys at my usual pork shop ( Leong Sin Nam Farm ) in Jalan Leong Sin Nam ( see even the street is named after this great man ) and bought 2 pairs back . I love to buy my meat from this place for the meat are kept in their chiller and the meat are fresh from their farm :) My grandmother used to cook this for me when I was young. I love the ginger strips fried till crispy in sesame oil...wooow I tell you I love the beautiful smell of sesame oil with ginger...so fragrant that I can eat this everyday and not get bored :0 The magic in this dish is the sesame oil and ginger ! Of course don't eat this often...high in cholesterol . Moderation is my motto in life, where food is concern that is LOL!
sesame oil, ginger strips and chinese wine
are the most important ingredients in preparing this dish
no one in the family eat this except me ..... :p
I love the springy and crunchy texture and the awesome flavor
of sesame oil and chinese cooking wine.........
