It was home cooking day again. Last week, I had this last piece of frozen pork belly in my freezer and I have forgotten what I wanted to cook with it. I finally decided to cook it BBQ style. I used whatever ingredients I have available in my fridge to create my own BBQ version. Lol!
First I sliced the pork belly into slices and marinated the meat slices with a special sauce. I can't quite remember but I think I used oyster sauce, sugar, honey, dark soya sauce for colouring, red fermented bean curd (nam yee), etc. I left the meat in the fridge to marinate for a few hours.
When it was time to prepare dinner, I took out the meat from the fridge, laid the meat slices in a baking tray and cook them in the oven with approx. 200 deg. C. with the oven fan on. I am not sure for how long but I was keeping watch over the meat. I didn't want the meat to be overcooked and dry or get burnt. My cooking is all "agak-agak", estimation only. My recipe is forever changing.
The cooked pork belly taken from the oven and placed on a serving plate.
Whatever remaining thick sauce in the baking tray, I transferred onto the pork belly slices. Coated with the thick sauce, the meat slices taste wonderful and delicious. Good thing I cooked just enough rice for hubby and myself and no extra or I would be tempted to go for 2nd helping.
I bought some taugeh or beansprout from the nearby mini market and stir fried the beansprout with some crispy fried salted fish. We love crunchy beanspout that is not overcooked.

We found the following treasures at the Gopeng Museum.

I found these posters in a food court. I like the top picture of the green van. What was once common is now considered a priceless treasure.
But this precious treasure -
this light and power that now shine within us -
is held in a perishable container, that is, in our weak bodies.
Everyone can see that the glorious power within
must be from God and is not our own.
