Crispy Pork Belly Roast

This is one of the reasons why I will not become vegetarian. That’s why I love  lechon, lechon kawali and bagnet. This crispy roasted pork belly is essentially the same but easier to make. No deep frying involve- I don’t like deep-frying not because of any health reasons, in fact, I love deep-fried food but […]

Chinese-Style Spareribs

I found this recipe from my old Turbo Broiler’s instruction manual and cookbook. I didn’t know that I still have this and was surprised to find it while cleaning out one of my cabinets. It’s about time I give at least one of the recipes a try and this spareribs appealed to me. It was […]

Like most sandwiches, this is a cinch to prepare if you already have the following: hoagie or sub rolls, marinara sauce and meatballs, all home made in advance or store-bought, but.. It’s just as easy if you do it all from scratch in less than an hour (except for the bread, just buy good quality […]

Sukiyaki (すき焼き)

I know Sukiyaki,  the song- a beautiful, sentimental song translated from a popular Japanese song but I had no idea what a sukiyaki dish was, I did have a vague childhood recollection of it as sauteed meat and veggies but I can’t quite remember the taste.  I recently had sukiyaki from a Japanese resto and […]

Pulled Pork (Slow-Cooked) »

Pulled Pork (Slow-Cooked)

This is the recipe that I always use for making pulled pork, it’s hassle-free, I just put everything in the crockpot and it takes care of itself, which means free or extra time for me to do other things ü.  Set your alarm if your slow-cooker doesn’t have a timer (like mine’s) so you won’t […]
