I created this new dish for dinner yesterday! Tomyam pork is so easy to cook and so yummy that you would think I am not revealing all the steps and ingredients. Once you have all the ingredients, this dish is a total child’s play. Even Drama Queen can whip this out on her own. She did help me in the kitchen – with chopping two big onions. And after watching how I cooked this dish, I think she can cook this dish on her own in future.
1. 1 packet of Way tomyam sauce or any tomyam paste. You could even prepare the paste from scratch with raw ingredients if you have the time.
2. 2 big onions, chopped
3. Cooking oil
4. Sugar and salt to taste
5. Ladies fingers, pineapple cubes, long beans, brinjal, potatoes or any veggie of your choice
1. Marinate the pork slices with some pepper, salt and corn flour (optional) for a few hours.
2. Brown the chopped onions.
3. Brown the pork slices.
4. Add in the tomyam paste.
5. Saute for a few minutes and add water.
6. Add about 1 teaspoon of brown sugar (optional).
7. Let simmer for about 15 minutes.
8. Add in the vegetables and simmer for another 10 minutes.
9. Dish out and serve with hot rice or blanched vermicelli
I cooked an extra portion for the next day’s lunch (today’s lunch) and blanched some vermicelli to go with the tomyam pork. Also boiled some hard-boiled eggs to go with the vermicelli. The girls loved this lip-smacking and piquant dish. The tomyam sauce from Way is just right for us, which is very aromatic and most importantly, not too spicy and is preservative and MSG-free.
Also on the dining table yesterday was grilled Teriyaki saba fish. We bought the saba fish from Isetan on Saturday.
Directions – grill saba fish with sea salt and pepper – 15 minutes on each side at 160C. Drizzle some Teriyaki sauce on the flesh side of the fish 10 minutes before it’s done grilling in the oven.
