What did you cook yesterday night?

Postby b2b3m4 » Wed Nov 23, 2011 12:15 pm

For all those who cook regularly, thinking of what to cook is often such a chore. I was thinking if we help each other out by sharing what we prepared yesterday.
You may of course post pictures and maybe the recipe.

I'll start 1st.

Yesterday I was really tired after work, so cook something really simple.
Menu
Rice
Fried bean sprouts with ikan bilis
Meatball soup
Cut fresh fruits

Fried bean sprouts
Fry ikan bilis till crispy. Add bean sprout. Add 1 tbsp fish sauce and salt for seasoning.

Meatball soup.
Meatball - mince meat+fish paste. Seasoning, seasame oil, pepper and soy sauce.
Boil water, add meatballs. Season.
Once boil, add tofu. Off fire, add seaweed and fried shallots with oil.

We had "claypot rice" (but in a rice cooker) with carrot corn soup.

Use thermal pot to cook carrot corn soup. Heat up and add in wanton before dinner.

Cook rice.
Lightly fried xiao bai chai.
Marinate chicken wing with wine, dark sause, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Fried chicken with chinese sausage and flower mushroom. Do not over cook.
Add all ingredients into cook rice and leave it in pot for about 10-15mins then tuck in.

Hi b2b3m4,

My hubby loves tang oh, too. Yes, I used premixed.

I can't remember the brand right now but it is yellow packaging with ginseng. Hope that helps.

Our meal was a "chicken feast". The extended family came by so dishes had to be big in portion as well as easy enough to prepare. Soup is always my "main", takes the longest time and most ingredients. Last night I used green papaya, chestnuts, ginger, kampung chicken and scallops. Next, sukiyaki chicken. Ingredients include chicken, konjaku, shitaki mushroom soy sauce, mirin, sugar and onion. Then another chicken dish, this time chicken cooked with thyme, coconut milk, red pepper, garlic, lemongrass, oyster mushroom, peppercorn and dried chilli. Green veg was stir fried sugar snap peas. One of my hubby's brother bought rojak as a "surprise dish". And another's helper made carrot cake (western version) for dessert.

My family likes chicken stew. Use chicken, chestnut, mushroom, carrot, potato, onion, Chinese sausage, black and light soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, corn flour, rice wine, bitmof salt salt, oyster sauce. All mixed together, put in AMC pot or tanyu pot. Stew until potato is soft. My AMC pot usually take 45 mins to 1 hr .

So easy to make, nutritious and so yummy. Kids love it. Good as 1-dish meal.

Yes, Chinese chicken stew. A long forgotten dish, definitely will prepare it for dinner 1 of these days. Thanks for the heads up.

By the way, what is so special about AMC pot? I've read on the website but i can't seem to understand what is so special about it. Does it mean if I use AMC pot, i need not stir throughout the whole cooking process? And what is the purpose of the thermometer on the cover of the pots?

I made pizza- just threw some mushrooms, pineapple, ham on bread and toasted it. Not fantastic but sometimes kids complain that I always cook the same thing.
