Kelly’s Lion’s Head Casserole

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Lion’s Head Casserole is a traditional pork meatball dish that every Chinese kid is familiar with. It’s definitely Chinese comfort food. There are so many variations of this recipe out there from different regions and just varying family tradition. Most use some sort of filler, bread, breadcrumbs, or tofu, but my mom’s version doesn’t. She said that my brother and I preferred it this way as kids. She also says that if you use tofu, it must be eaten within two days or the meatballs will get a little sour. In any variation, this is a great make-ahead meal. I think it actually tastes better the next day.

Chinese Warm Toss Salad

Saturday, June 6, 2009

When I was a little kid, we had this dish at Peking Duck House and we loved it, so my mom started making it at home. I’ve still never seen it anywhere else, and it’s definitely one of my favorite dishes on Earth! (BTW, this dish and the Peking Duck are the only good dishes at Peking Duck House. Do not get anything else.) I looked it up on their website, and they call the dish, Assorted Meat w. Vegetable w. Tiensin Mung Bean Sheets. That’s kind of long and I don’t like the sound of it. My mom has been calling it Luke-Warm Toss (in Chinese) for years because it’s a dish served at that temperature so I’ll go with something like that.

Zong Zi – Part 2: Recipe

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

For a little background information on Zong Zi, see part 1.

Like I mentioned, this is the way my mom makes Zong Zi, and it’s just fabulous. I did my best to document her process but she doesn’t have measuring spoons and stuff so a lot of these quantities are estimates. Before you start, realize that this is pretty work intensive and that you’ll need to start planning the night before. You’ll see that it’s worth it though because you can make a lot and it stores well in the refrigerator (or freezer), and heats up in the microwave nicely (just cover with wet paper towel).

*On 6/15/10, I added another Zong Zi recipe to FoodMayhem. It’s a Red Bean Zong Zi, with video to show the hard part, assembly.

Asian-Style Pork Barbecue and Hot Slaw Sandwich

Saturday, May 23, 2009

We had pork left over in our fridge.  When I looked at it, I kept envisioning some type of Asian-inspire barbecue sandwich.  We had some Coke left over from a recent party and I thought about how some Korean mamas marinate beef in the sugary soda.  I wanted the crisp caramelization found in Korean barbecue, the vinegary-dressing in Vietnamese sandwiches, and I had various Chinese spices around the kitchen.

Shredded Pork & Burdock Root

Thursday, May 21, 2009

A while back I wasn’t feeling great and so I was seeing an acupuncturist.  She told me about consuming burdock root as it has strong medicinal benefits.  Wikipedia agrees, and no one denies Wikipedia!  So Jessica’s mom made me a delicious dish of Shredded Pork with Burdock Root.  Recently, I’ve been having a hankering for that dish again, it was so good.

Pork, Bean Curd, and Yellow Chives

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

I love Yellow Chives but I only find them at Asian supermarkets. They are the same plant as garlic chives, only grown without direct sunlight, which prevents them from turning green. Garlic chives and yellow chives are more pungent than American chives with a distinct garlicky flavor. They have flat (not hollow) leaves, and are used as a vegetable in Chinese cooking as opposed to the sprinkling use of herbs. It seems that some people love them and some people find them too stinky (in a garlicky way).

New England Clam Chowder

Thursday, April 16, 2009

At the same supermarket where we picked up that delicious lobster, we also grabbed a variety of clams. I’ve been wanting to make some New England Clam Chowder, especially since I saw Bobby Flay’s Throwdown with the Brooklyn Chowder Surfer.

I’m a huge fan of clam anything, but especially clam chowder, and even more so, New England Clam Chowder (that’s the creamy style). Why, just yesterday I was talking about how I love dairy. Well Ben Sargent, the Chowda Suhfah (he’s Bostonian), seems to make a mean clam chowder, but doesn’t seem to have posted his recipe anywhere. So, I examined several of his video clips (on Throwdown, on Martha Stewart, and others) and came up with my own recipe. Hopefully, this does his grandfather proud.

Rosemary Pomegranate Coated Rack of Pork

Sunday, April 5, 2009

It’s been weeks since Carol introduced me to Pomegranate Molasses, and I finally got to using it this week. While it’s called molasses, it’s really a syrup: sweet and tart with concentrated pomegranate flavor. It’s plain wonderful!

Pork Belly

Dan Barber's Pork Belly 1

I found this recipe for pork belly a while back and have been anticipating making it. Ideally, I would have followed this recipe to the “T” but I didn’t have some exact things. The result should be close though.

Fried Tofu with Minced Pork in Spicy Garlic Sauce

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

This is a variation on Ma Po Tofu that my mom developed when I was a kid and it instantly became a household favorite. Me, my brother, and our cousins, requested it all the time. Now that I made it for Lon, he’ll be requesting it too.  *photo was updated on 8/23/16
