Char Siew Noodles – Supplementary notes to Video

So lastly, I handle to cough out a video.

I’ve dreamt of doing since a couple of years again. The tempo of labor and life merely didn’t permit it.

Until Covid19 after all.

So, ought to I swap solely to video? I nonetheless suppose {that a} weblog might be supplementary to a cookbook or video recipes. I discover it simpler to refer to textual content when I’m cooking off a recipe. Videos are nice in inspiring and giving me concepts and confidence. Both might be useful.

Here are some supplementary notes to the video.

  1. Can this be cooked beneath an hour? Absolutely. The thickness of the meat will have an effect on the time wanted. In the video, I used to be utilizing pork which was not more than an inch in diameter. If you pork strips are thicker than that, you’ll need to prepare dinner longer. 
  2. If you shouldn’t have Hoi Sin sauce, exchange it with oyster sauce, which was what my Mum used. You will want to improve the quantity of sugar in that case. 
  3. I made one mistake within the video. You can take away the sauce on the whereas protecting the pork within the wok. As the quantity of sauce cut back, the searing will start. This reduces the steps and simplify the recipe. 
  4. Also word that I used to be attempting to simplify the steps to keep away from having to use too many bowls and so forth. I used to be simply attempting to cut back the necessity for laundry. I’m positive you may work out a extra elegant and less complicated manner of cooking this.
