    Stir-fried Pork & Tofu Skin

    I recently discovered some Tofu Skin (Bean Curd Skin) products can be used as noodles. Some products might be too soft, but the Chinese Bean Curd Sticks I purchased have firmer texture. When the twisted sticks are rehydrated and softened, they can be cut into noodles. These noodles can be a life saver for those …

    Stewed Beef & Vegetables

    This is the simplest Stewed Beef & Vegetables, I suppose. Today I had some chunky cuts of Beef for casserole, and I wanted to cook something very light. So, I simply stewed everything in Vegetable Stock and seasoned with Slat & Black Pepper. I thought the soup needed some acidity, then I added a Tomato. …
