Pork Leg In Black Vinegar

The night before, I was digging into the freezer to see what I can cook for dinner. Found a pork leg and let it thaw in the lower shelf of the fridge.

Since I haven't cooked pork leg in black vinegar for a long time, I will be cooking this dish for dinner.
Our day started at 7:08am with our morning walk.
Reflection of the sunrise.
Murals on the wall around the Chinese school.
Back home in my garden, I harvested the above. Will be cooking the green brinjals for dinner and the cucumber will be eaten raw as salad.

Home cooked dinner.
Blanched the newly harvested green brinjals plus some long beans and okra and drizzled with garlic oil, oyster and soy sauce.
The pork leg was given by my neighbour and I used it to cook black vinegar pork leg. Ingredients used: pork leg, old and young ginger slices, black wood fungus, black beans, and a bottle of black vinegar. I used the ready mixed black vinegar from Kilang Kicap Kwong Ban Woh from Penang. Water added depends on individual's preference. I used slightly more than 1 bottle of water to 1 bottle of black vinegar. I used a pressure cooker to cook this dish which is fast and easy. 
This was our dinner with steamed rice.
I blessed our neighbour with a big portion of the pork leg in black vinegar in return for her pork leg.
Evening sky at 7:30pm, with the street lighted up.


Young man, obey your father and your mother.
Take to heart all of their advice; keep in mind everything they tell you.
Every day and all night long their counsel will lead you
and save you from harm; when you wake up in the morning,
let their instructions guide you into the new day.
For their advice is a beam of light directed into the dark corners
of your mind to warn you of danger and to give you a good life.
(Proverbs 6:20-23, The Living Bible-TLB)

    Never heard of black vinegar. I guess we can buy it someone where here.
    The murals do look rather nice and your cucumbers are doing well.

  4. I love pork leg in black vinegar but I have yet to attempt it in my kitchen. What a good harvest to had! I bet the cucumbers are very fresh and crunchy direct from the garden.

  5. Ooooo...I love this!!! My missus has not cooked it for a while now. Maybe I shall go out and tapao - they do it pretty well outside, not like the phak lor five-spice braised pork leg. The ones here are always too diluted, Foochow-style, not to my liking!!!

  7. The fungus and black beans are new to me, usually have this with only ginger inside. Sounds good though.
