Angry Duck

Angry duck, also referred to as Chongqing spicy duck, is a beloved dish originating from Sichuan province, renowned for its fiery and numbing taste sensations. This dish showcases succulent duck meat stir-fried alongside a harmonious medley of dried red chilies, Sichuan peppercorns, garlic, ginger, and a melange of fragrant spices, creating a captivating flavor experience.

Chinese Red Cooked Beef

A visit to the  Asian grocery store in Milnerton’s China Town inspired me to try and cook an authentic Chinese Red Cooked Beef  dish for date night.  We do not eat Chinese food that often – the American Chinese versions of chow mein and chop suey that you get in most Chinese restaurants here does not appeal to us.  As is often the case, if you want to get close to any authentic ethnic cuisine you have to cook it yourself.

Korean Pork Belly Bulgogi

I was thrilled to find Gochujang in my local Asian grocer recently.  This fermented red chilli paste is made from chilli powder, glutinous rice, fermented soybean powder, barley malt powder and salt.  It has a spicy, savory, sweet flavour and is an essential ingredient in various Korean dishes.  I decided to use it in a spicy Korean marinade for pork belly.
