Lo-Bak Pancakes

I love dim sum! It’s such a pity the nearest purveyor is mighty close to 2 hours away by car. Whenever we go, we order 2 dishes of lo-bak go; that is to say radish patties. One of them is just for me, and the other is for the rest of the table. Yes! It’s my favourite! It’s also kind …

Alambre de Chuleta

As I looked around for recipes to use our Poblano peppers, alambres kept coming up. What, you may ask – I did –  is an “alambre“? My conclusion (as Google translate was less than helpful) is that it is a kind of stir-fried hash. Google persisted in wanting to translate alambre de chuleta as “wire chop”, which I guess is …

Melon, Parsley, & Sweet Onion Salad

Both were very tasty though, so no …

Spicy Pork & Vegetable Tofu – Probably Not Mapo Tofu

This might look like I was trying to make a version of a famous Chinese dish called mapo tofu, but that’s not the case, and in fact, I’m pretty sure I was making this before I knew what mapo tofu was. And now that I’ve addressed the people that were going to complain this isn’t authentic, we can continue. I’m …

Steamed Barbecue Pork Buns (Char Siu Bao) – Sweet, Steamy Memories

In younger, leaner times, I’d often rely on the delicious, inexpensive calorie bomb that is the steamed barbecue pork bun. They were twice the size, and for a few bucks you could get very full…for about 30 minutes, and then you were starving again. Nothing a Mission-style burrito couldn’t fix. Anyway, the filling was chopped Chinese-style barbecue pork mixed with …
