Favourite of The Day #1: Braised Pork Trotter

In fancy restaurant?!



In posh looking Chinese dining place?



Not anywhere but my house.

I just couldn't believe my eyes, I could have this braised pork trotter on a normal weekday at home. It was not some kind of special occasion eg: Chinese New Year or some reunion dinner or anyone's birthday. Just a simple normal day...


Mum made us braised pork trotter!!! Fried and braised for hours; used a special way to flavour the whole pork trotter; and created this special this. I love the fats part the most; soft, silky soft and melted right on the tongue. The skin was packed with collagen while the meat was succulent. 


Okay, don't drool in front of the screen :P

I wish i could have half of mum's skill! YUM!!! 

Happy Friday!

nikel khor,

baby sumo,
ya. i should really start learning from her. but i don't do well on the measurement of those seasoning. sigh

food dreams,
agree! hehe


haha, and put the cholesterol and waistline aside first

hmmm, how should i answer this?!
we sliced it only before served. and cut the portion that enough for us and keep the uncut one for the next meal.
