UK Fried Glass Noodles/Fried Tang Hoon One noodle that I haven’t had in a long time is ‘glass noodle or Tang Hoon’. I never thought of cooking this until I saw it at Belachan's blog. I remember when I was young I had problem chewing and swallowing this type of noodles. I guess it is the chewy and slippery texture of it. Ingredients: 3 small bunch of glass noodles – soak in warm water until soft. Sauce: 2 tbsp oyster sauce 2 tbsp of soy sauce 2 tbsp fish sauce 1 tsp sugar Salt and pepper to taste 1/2 cup of chicken stock 1.
Great Homemade Bratwurst Recipe for the Home Sausage Maker This homemade bratwurst recipe is very close to what you would expect to get if you had a fresh bratwurst served to you in Germany. At least that's what I've been told by a friend who actually has the experience to be able to accurately make the comment. Bratwurst (and lots of other German sausage) is often made with emulsified meat. To emulsify the bratwurst, the meat is ground through the fine plate of a sausage grinder, mixed with the spices and other ingredients, and then run through the food processor in small batches (adding water as needed) until a paste-like consistency is accomplished. This isn't difficult to do, but it can be time consuming if you are making more than about 5 lbs. of sausage. I find I can get a very respectable product just by grinding the meat several times through the finest plate on my meat grinder. Recipe Once the sausage is fully mixed, stuff it right away into 32-35 mm hog or collagen casings and refrigerate or freeze immediately.

British Pork Recipes: Perfect Roast Pork Recipe Roast Pork is, like Roast Beef, an intrinsic part of a Sunday Roast, though there is no reason to not eat the meat any other day. A perfect roast pork should have lovely moist, evenly cooked meat surrounded by crisp, sharp crackling. The crackling can be either left on the meat of removed at the end of cooking and served separately. I prefer to use outdoor, free range pork as this will have a good thick layer of fat. A good layer of fat under the skin is imperative to keeping the meat moist during cooking and also adds flavour to the finished roast, as the fat renders down during cooking there's no need to worry. If you buy a large joint of pork, don't worry, adjust the cooking times to suit the size (see below) and you can never have too much left over pork to make delicious sandwiches for lunch the next day. Read My Tips and Hints for Cooking Perfect Roast Pork Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes Total Time: 1 hour, 50 minutes Ingredients: Preparation:
