Irvine's Recipe - Siu Yok!!

My Home Made Siu Yuk

Ok. I do work hard. I do play hard. I do travel hard. Well, of course, i do cook too! hehe. Missing some delicious food from Malaysia. We decided to prepare some ourselves. So lets do it!

Siu Yuk (Chinese Roasted Pork)
For this you will require the belly part. Boil the belly slightly to clean and soften texture. Dry. Marinate whole meat with Chinese wine and five spices, salt and white pepper. Dip bottom meat with sauce (mixing light/dark soy, white pepper, Chinese wine and five spices). For skin side, ensure it is entire dry. Use sharp fork or stick to poke the skin texture entirely (this will make it crispy). Rub with vinegar and cover with salt. You can leave it in the fridge for a night for better flavour.


Wrap the belly with aluminium foil (reduce open gap to avoid splashing of heated meat oil/liquid). Leaving only the skin side facing up exposed. Place into oven and heat till skin is deliciously crispy.

Singapore Premium Laksa

Okay for some extra kick to our dinner, we make some delicious Singapore Premium Laksa. I do highly recommend this one. Slightly costly but definitely having great flavour. Anyway, Dinner Time!

Ta-da! Dinner Time!

The food looks good. You are a good cook so your wife must be very happy with you. :)

I read somewhere that during the fasting months, it is a crime even for expat workers to eat in the open during fasting time. Is this true? So during lunch, where do you eat during fasting time?

You're post has me excited for our upcoming trip to Japan. Lucky for me though it will be in the summer - I'm not fond of the cold.

Shirley Tay said...

Oh wow, you cook too & I'm impressed! Yummy, yummy!

Irvine Chin said...

Thanks Mun. Err yes can't eat in public. Just take away and eat somewhere private. However recently some places can serve as long as they cover up the area.

Nancy thanks. And yes, it is actually quite easy lah haha.

Is that Prima Taste, the celebrated Singapore brand? How come the packaging is different? Here so very expensive, last I saw, RM8.00 for ONE packet! Serving's big though, enough for two...but at the end of the day, it is just instant noodles. I can live without it.

Siew yoke looks good! They do sell pork there, eh?

Rose World said...

Your siu yoke is good.

Oh. Nice to go with your Singaporean laksa.

Kati said...

Since I don#t eat meat this is not really for me but I hope you enjoyed it.

Have a great week,

Linda said...

The food does look good, I love homemade! And your first photo is phenomenal!

Nowadays there are a lot of companies doing these "white curry" style instant noodles. I saw another cup brand recently too, they even sent it to a ramen reviewer in the US and used his photo for publicity. Haha.

Irvine Chin said...

suituapui yup! probably the best instant packet i could get here. well, comes with the price. they do sell pork in supermarkets non halal section. hotels with licence do serve too.

Rose indeed :)

Kati have a great weekend!

Thanks Linda! home cook still the best.

Huai Bin yeah, seems like something people crave a lot. haha definitely ambitious guy using his photo. some donald trump/robert kiyosaki kind.
