Braised Salted Mustard with Pork (Mui Choy Kau Yok)
Back in action, but this time I have left my french food craze aside. The past week had been busy. It is the last week before autumn school holiday and this means, I will be able to enjoy 2 whole weeks of holiday free! Before doing so, the centre where I work for, has a tradition of throwing a little celebration before the kids goes off. Its lovely for the kids, but for the teachers, it simply meant more work! Yes, its a complain but I should not really, and instead should concentrate on the two lovely weeks ahead.
This is a stew of chinese mustard and pork slices. It is something I grew up eating. Pure comfort food in a cold day, it taste saltish but what the recipe calls for is to balance the saltiness of the salted mustard vegetable with a cup of coconut juice. Mine is with apple juice and worked just as well. But for those who enjoys my western inspired cooking, afraid not because I´ve been skimming lately and all I need is time, time, time. Which will be SOON!
