My family’s favourite yummy Chinese Pork Chops with Potato Slices and Caramelised Onions
Hi there, dear friends 😀
I have a confession …. I have not been cooking much this year at all … 😳 . Experiencing perimenopausal symptoms in our all year round hot, humid tropical weather is sheer torture! To cook in a situation like that is to be drenched in sweat from the hair down to the toes! 😆
That’s why my post title, “What am I cooking for dinner today?” is a big deal to me. Today, I am prepared to get all hot and bothered to cook a delicious dinner as a treat for my family…. and … heheh, because I am beginning to feel guilty! Those of you who have been following my blog all these years will know I have not posted many recipes lately. 😉
So, what am I cooking for dinner today ❓
This morning, a suggestion to a reader at my Homemade Yummy Crispy Roast Pork Belly post to try out my family’s Favourite Chinese Pork Chops recipe got my mouth watering. I quickly drove to the wet market (farmer’s market) and got myself a kilo of lovely pork chops from my regular butcher. 😆
My children got all excited, too, when they came home from classes and saw me preparing the Chinese Pork Chops…they know they are in for a treat tonight! Plus, they have been missing my cooking… 😳
Right now, I have on my stove a claypot of “Lotus Roos, Lotus Seed, Red Dates and Pork Ribs Soup” simmering gently away for 3 hours to build a rich, deep flavour.
Because our weather today is really hot, humid and hazy, I also have a large pot of cooling herbal drink simmering gently away ===>
Healthy cooling drink made up of red cane, candied wintermelon, Hung Teen Wu and water chestnuts
For my family, a typical Chinese meal will have 3 dishes and a soup with hot white rice – the soup and a meat dish will be the main “stars” at the dining table. So, I have my Lotus Root/Lotus Seed soup already … and the Chinese Pork Chops will be the centre of attention…heheh, I can visualize now my children and husband tucking hungrily into the pork chops. 😆
Well…I better head back to my kitchen to finish prepping for dinner….I had stopped by here for a breather!
With best wishes,
