🇵🇭LECHON PINAKSIW NA ULO NG BABOY | LECHON PORK HEAD IN SOUR SOUP SAUCE 👩🏻‍🍳iCOOK

👩‍🍳Delicious leftover Lechon. It’s not a holiday season at home, it’s the month of June 2022. The month wherein we celebrate the commemoration of our Emancipation day as Filipino we hardly spent this with friends here in Vienna. Because of the nature of our work. Most of the time we are on duty. tomorrow June 12, 20222 we will spend it at home with my daughter and my hubby. This was the leftover from my Pork head Lechon. I don’t want to reheat it because the good parts were already consumed, and what is left are the lean meat parts and occasionally some meaty bones. So I decided to cook it as Lechon pinaksiw for today’s lunch.

👩‍🍳Paksiw is the generic name for stews made with vinegar. To make paksiw na Lechon, the meat is slow-cooked in a mixture of vinegar, soy sauce, peppercorns, bay leaves, sugar which I did not add, salt, and whatever is left over from the sauce. It sometimes happens that there is no leftover sauce. In which case, some substitutions may be in order. One option is to use commercial Lechon sauce available bottled in most supermarkets, just like the one I used here from Mama Sita’s Lechon salsa. Another option is to use a can of the liver spread diluted in a cup of meat broth. Or, if you have a lot of leftover Lechon, you may choose both options and mix them all together.

🌏HOW TO COOK SHREDDED CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP WITH FRIED TOFU AND INOKI MUSHROOMS 👩🏻‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳The broth is made out of ginger, soy sauce, fish sauce (patis), and scallions. To adjust the taste I used salt. A quick and easy lunch or dinner. But for me, I always need a soup this gives me a satisfy or should I say it makes my meal complete. With homemade wide Chinese noodles, carrots, traditional fish balls, shrimp, and Yu Choy. It looks so basic but tastes good. Served with patties, mashed potato for me, and fried rice for hubby and juicing. Put the minced beef in a bowl with salt, pepper, herb salt, garlic granules, onion granules, and Tabasco and knead well, that was my patties made of. Happy prepping and Guten Appetit.

👩‍🍳One among my collections of SOUP RECIPE of mine from the creation, inspiration, and adaptation of both European and Filipino cuisines. A sort of fusion of different cuisine between Europe and Asia. As we know it today is a multi-layered expression of culture and … well-to-do Filipinos traveled to Europe and migrated over time. I’m one of them. Living in Vienna for more than three decades now. Today I’ll show you how to cook shredded chicken noodle soup with fried tofu and Inoki mushrooms in an easy way. I love “Toyomansi” for dipping my fried tofu. Toyomansi is a product from my motherland a combination of Toyo-soy sauce and calamsi juice. I hope you like this recipe.

🇵🇭HAPUNAN-DINNER-ABENDESSEN WITH MY HOME PREP MEAL

HOW TO…….

👩‍🍳The best time for dinner is between 5pm and 7pm. This gives the stomach and intestines enough time to digest the food they eat before the metabolism switches to sleep mode at night. The stress of the day is over, and the work is done. But in our case, if you are working from 11:30 before noontime until 10pm then you travel on the way home we need almost 30 minutes. Arrive at home almost half an hour before 11 pm then I have to cook for dinner. But luckily tonight I was already at around 6 pm so I have enough time to prepare our meal. So for tonight’s meal every Filipino, sinigang with Sea Bream and Shrimps, and fried squid. For dessert, I made a fruit cocktail with sour cream and grapes. Hubby is happy and of course my tummy too. I love the vegetables that it goes with this viand. happy prepping everyone.

YOU NEED…….

1 Sea Bream

2oog Shrimp

a bunch of Spinach

3 Chilis

1 Tomato

1 Onion

Scallions

2 pieces of eggplant, small

some Water

2 tbsps. Sinigang Seasoning

Salt to taste

FOR DESSERT:

1 can of Fruit Cocktail

🇦🇹ANOTHER GASTRONOMIC ADVENTURE WITH AN EX-COLLEAGUE – CELEBRATED CHINESE NEW YEAR – EAT-OUT DINNER

👩‍🍳 Event gastronomy in Vienna, the culinary attractions in Vienna are diverse. If you are looking for something for everyone who is enthusiastic about a meal with a high entertainment value and event character, Vienna has a lot to offer. But these are small Restaurants in the city that are run by Asian people whom we love to try from time to time. Exempted is the Vegan ice which is run by Austrian and the Krah Krah Restaurant in the First District of Vienna which I tried with my ex-colleague. First Stop, lunch at Krah Krah Restaurant run by Austrian. 1980s Ale pub with the garden serving international food and drink including giant sandwiches. Rabensteig 8 A-1010 Vienna

The next one is one of our favourite Restaurants near Naschmarkt. With authentic Asian Cuisine. Restaurant Chinazentrum Zhong Xin For more than 15 years they have been spoiling guests from all over the world with traditional Chinese food and drinks at the Naschmarkt in 1060 Vienna. A Far Eastern ambience awaits you in our restaurant. “Zhongxin” means centre and their first location from 2002-to 2014 was on Rechte Wienzeile 29, 1040 Vienna. In 2014 they relocated to 1060 Vienna. Linke Wienzeile 44 1060 Vienna

The third one is Soya Noodles their meals are inspired by simple Asian cuisine. Prepare them daily from fresh ingredients and they do not use glutamate. They love coconut, ginger, chilli and Thai basil, so you can find them in most of their meals. Amerlingstraße 19, A-1060 Vienna

The last one is the Veganista Ice Cream. Run by two sisters who have been vegan for over 20 years and have been passionately pursuing a big dream: to produce honest and delicious ice cream. No artificial flavours, colours or powders. Simply the best ice cream with the best ingredients. Amerlingstraße 19, Vienna

🌏TEMPURA SARDINES FILLET & BROCCOLI FRIED RICE WITH CHICKEN THIGHS FILLET 👩🏻‍🍳iCook 

👩‍🍳With the fried rice with vegetables, only good things end up on the plate. Broccoli packs plenty of health benefits. while chicken thighs provide plenty of protein power. And thanks to provitamin A, carrots are good for our skin. It’s one meal you can’t ask for more.

Sardines fillet is breaded with Tempura and served with homemade Achara from my niece. Of course with rice, because we are Filipino. Achara is made from grated unripe Papaya originating from my country- the Philippines. This dish is often served as an accompaniment to fried or grilled foods, such as roast pork also to fish.
