Two course dinner!

HELLO! I know I’m suppose to be mugging my exams, but I just cooked myself some really wonderful dinner and I decided to share it here! Hahaha. For the sake of delicious food eh? *raise eyebrows* SO! What’s so special about today’s meal? It’s actually two common dish that you can find at some Chinese people’s dinner. But I just think, it’s so yummy 😀 Okay, so today’s two dish is: Spinach with wolfberry and dry mini prawns (I don’t really know it’s Chinese name, but it’s something like anchovies or ikan bilis) and Stir-fry pork with cucumber.

INGREDIENTS:

Dish One: Spinach with wolfberry and dry mini prawns

A handful of Woflberry (Right)
A handful of dried mini prawns (Left)
(You can buy both of them at those dry goods store)


A large packet of Spinach – around 300gm or more, cut into four parts.(Sorry I didn’t take a photo of my spinach!)
One whole small garlic, diced.

Dish Two: Stir-fry pork with cucumber

One long Japanese Cucumber, sliced half cut into thin slices)

Pork loin, Sliced and marinated with soya sauce, Shao-Hsing wine and pepper


(Ps. This picture of the pork is not marinated yet)

One whole small garlic, diced

PREPARATION:

-This part is mainly just for the wolfberry and mini dry prawns-

1. Soak the wolfberry in water, just barely covering over it for about three minutes or till they are softer (but not really soft)
2. Pour the water that soaked the wolfberry into a small bowl
3. Soak the mini dry prawns in water, also just barely covering over it for about five minutes. (Don’t worry if they don’t turn very soft)
4. Pour the water that soaked the dry prawns into the same small bowl.

HOW TO COOK:

Dish One:
1. Add a tablespoon of oil, when heated up throw in the garlic and fry it.
2. When the garlic turn brown, or darker. Add in the mini dry prawns. Fry with it.
3. When the dry prawns turn a little softer, add in spinach.
4. Pour in the juice from the preparation. Mix and stir-fry well.
5. When much juice is produced, throw in the wolfberry.
6. Stir-fry till the wolf berry turns soft and the spinach decrease in volume (as compared to when you just put in)
7. Add a dashing of salt. Mix well.
8. Put it into a plate.

Dish Two:
1. Add a tablespoon of oil, when heated up throw in the garlic and fry it.
2. When the garlic turn brown, or darker. Add in pork loin with the marinated sauce.
3. Fry them until the pork loin is half-cooked.
4. Add in cucumber and stir-fry them.
5. As the cucumber will have some juices/water coming out, let everything be stir-fried in the cucumber sauce.
6. Add in a little dashing of salt. Mix well.
7. Put it on a plate.

SO! That’s how it is mainly done. Okay, it is actually quite simple and it is very tasty (if you cook it well) You can eat it with rice, or porridge. Mainly rice would be nice. Okay so, I think that’s about it. Happy Cooking 😀

P/s. Sorry I never take those step by step photos for you all because a) I was home-alone very hard to take while I’m cooking b) I forgot to!
