I have been trying to perfect this recipe for awhile before posting it. All components of this dish have been previously blogged about before. Being a perfectionist, i am always trying to better myself and my dishes. I am finally proud to say that I am happy with this recipe! The meat is juicy and tender with an amazing homemade char siew sauce, the rice is fragrant with the perfect texture and the chilli is appetizing and to die for!
I used the exact same ingredients (except that i used pig armpit for the meat this time) but a different cooking method. Add meat and sauce into a wok and bring to boil. Reduce heat and cover to simmer for about 45 minutes. Check and turn meat frequently. Cool before slicing.
