You can do it…

In one of my previous posts, Drumsticks was asking me for lessons on cooking. Well, for beginners, I think Chinese cooking would be the easiest…and fastest and anybody can do it if he or she gives it a try. LOL!!! And you should pay attention too, Melbie!!! Humph!!! What do you mean you are too lazy? Hahahahahahaha!!!!

Well, yesterday I cooked this simple chicken dish. I marinated the chicken in soy sauce and added a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of sesame oil. Then I cut four thin slices of ginger, heated a bit of oil in the wok and threw in the ginger. Keep stirring till the slices have turned a bit brown, then put in the chicken. Keep turning the pieces over and over to coat them in the simmering soy sauce. Never mind that the sauce is starting to stick to the wok. After a while, add water. Stir the water to dissolve the soy sauce that has stuck to the wok and leave it to simmer…until it dries up and you have only a little bit of thick soy sauce gravy left. Now it is ready to serve. This was what I had in the end…and it was nice! No salt and no msg!!!

Then I also cooked a vegetable dish – French beans! I usually cut them thinly and diagonally. Take two cloves of garlic, peel and chop them into tiny fine bits. Heat a bit of oil in the wok, throw in the garlic and saute until golden brown and then, put in the French beans. Add a teaspoon of chicken/ikan bilis (anchovies) stock…and a bit of water. Keep stir-frying till the beans are cooked…and this is what you will get.

Normally, I would break an egg and stir it into the veg for additional flavour…but my mother has developed an allergy to eggs, so I did not do that yesterday.

And if you’re one of those who must have soup with your meals, there are many easy-to-prepare clear soups in Chinese cooking, but maybe you would like to try this one…

Just follow the instructions on the packet, and this is the secret! Add a tablespoon of dark soy sauce…and when the soup is ready, you will get something like sharks’ fins soup, minus the sharks’ fins which is fine, consideriing that the fish is endangered and many activists will be cursing and swearing at you for eating that! Make sure you keep stirring the soup though and turn down the fire once you have brought it to boil or it will overflow and stick to the bottom of the saucepan as well.

So, ladies…now it’s over to you. But before I sign off from this post, I received something from that old Cock(a) via email and I would like to share it with everybody. Well, Clare did a bit of pole dancing recently (I thought that is something they do at places like Patpong in Bangkok? LOL!!!), so being the kiasu fella that I am, imagine me doing that as well…

Pole dancing, STP style

ROTFLMAO!!! Have a nice day!

  7. Just got back from grocery shopping. so inspired by yr satay receipe, bought me Brahim one, no wee’s.good or not? My friend’s son also allergy to eggs, till she bought either organic or free range, no harm trying that option. I used to be sceptical abt the differences btw normal n organic/FR till she told me. Actually i find western easier to cook but hubby likes cina style, kids like western, sometimes i fusion, n i wonder if i m operating a cafe having to cook different dishes to please everyone!as for pole dancing, maybe u will be good at holding the pole instead n the pole dancers can just dance around u!LOL!

    Brahims…ok lah!…Ya, no choice as wife and mother! But you can teach them to cook their own mah!!!…..The dancers will take a long time to go one round, sure pengsan!!! Hahahahahaha!!!

  8. Oooh! So that’s how you get a shark fins soup minus the sharks fin. I will give that a try. The pole dancing – gross, maybe you can do better : )

    It’s nice…but a bit too much msg to my liking, and if add more water, not thick anymore. So take once in a while, ok lah!….My problem is my arms not long enough to reach the pole, my tummy gets in the way! Hahahahahahaha!!!!!

  9. The chicken dish looks good! At first I thought you did bbq chicken haha! Looks so dry mar. I love chicken dish with thick gravy. Eh, eat too much chicken wings boobs get bigger.. LOL!

  11. Why is the pole in the crack of that person’s ass? I never understand the allure of pole dancing. Apart from maybe the pole being phallic, it’s just a stainless less rod! Ermmmmm……. LOL!
