RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

HUNG-SHAO JOU (Barbecued Pork), Chinese

Ingredients
  • 3 lbs. pork (shoulder meat with skin)
  • ¼ lb. soy sauce
  • 1 oz. ginger
  • 2 ozs. green onion
  • 2 ozs. sugar
  • 2 ozs. wine (sherry wine)
  • ½ lb. vegetable oil
Preparation Instructions

Wash meat and cut into 1 or ½ inch cubes. Put vegetable oil in a heavy frying pan. When the oil is very hot, put in the meat and stir-fry it. When the meat changes color, add wine (sherry), soy sauce, ginger and green onion. Cover the pot (or the same frying pan if it is a deep one), and turn the heat very low and cook 1 ½ hours. Then add sugar. Leave the pot on low heat for another 30 minutes and the meat is ready to eat.

Now put the barbecued meat in a beautiful Chinese dish and it is ready for the table. This is really delicious authentic Chinese food. If you don't believe it, please try and see.

Stainless Steel Rice Cooker with Stainless Steel Steamer Basket
Stainless Steel Rice Cooker with Stainless Steel Steamer Basket
Price: $79.95 at Gourmet.org


The new Miracle stainless steel rice cooker. This new 8 cup rice cooker will yield a full 12 cups of cooked white or brown rice. Cooks rice automatically and then switches to a stay warm mode when rice is fully cooked, keeping rice warm for hours. I like this feature, because it lets me keep dinner warm for family members arriving late, without having to serve them up a plate of microwave re-heats!

The inner cooking bowl is a beautiful solid mirror finish stainless steel. The glass lid allows you to view the rice or vegetables while cooking and the easy view indicator lights identify cooking modes. Also comes with a vegetable steamer try, measuring cup and rice paddle.
