One more from the Year of the Ox dinner.

Nothing fancy but very tasty: homemade char siu, Cantonese style roast pork. Marinated to make it flavorful and tender, steam roasted over hot water to keep it moist, then a searing stopover under the broiler for a crispy-edged finish. Leftovers destined for fried rice…or perhaps a noodle dish…wait, maybe a stir fry….

(Guess I’ve gotta give this more thought. Watch this space!)

Here’s to a healthy, prosperous, and happy New Year of the Ox!


Xīnnián kuàilè!
Stay safe, be well, and eat whatever it takes. ❤️

  1. Happy year of the Ox to you! Why the choice of cilantro? And will you be sharing a recipe soon? Also need a cross section of the strip of meat for more food porn ;P

    Good choice of selecting red food for new year luck. Have you read up on your zodiac animal fortune for this year? They said mine will bring in wealth, just let me prove them wrong lol
