Saturday Sandwich 14: Rou Jia Mo

This is another one from the Street Eats section, this time a Chinese sandwich filled with spiced pork. Sounds great!

Ingredients: pork belly, ginger, spring onion, star anise, cassia bark, rice wine, soy sauce, sugar, green pepper, chilli oil and English muffins.


Put all the ingredients in the pan (except the muffins and green pepper). Simmer for 2 hours! Our new kitchen has an electric hob so it took us a while to figure out which number would produce a simmer. Electric isn't quite as responsive as gas. We got it though and it simmered  away smelling delicious.


 When the meat is ready toast the muffins. Pile the meat onto the muffins and add some thinly sliced green pepper.



These sandwiches were great. Toasted muffins are great on their own but filled with delicious aromatic pork they're even better. We simmered ours a bit too vigorously and didn't really have much of a sauce left but apart from that it was easy to make and well worth the effort of hovering about your kitchen checking on the simmering for an hour or two :D

JD enjoyed simmering the tree bark and now I feel like I'll have to keep an eye on him so he doesn't try put random tree bark in all our foods!

Ratings: JD - 3/5 Emma - 4/5
