Valentine's meal...

I have cooked something special for myself during this Valentine's Day!! Let me guide you through it, step-by-step...

Onions, garlic, potatoes and tomatoes all chopped up nicely.

Two pork steaks (sorry if you are a Muslim...). Use knife to cut several 'gratings' on it. Then apply some salt and oyster sauce over it. The gratings will ensure that the flavor gets deep into the meat. Then, take one egg and beat it until the yolk and the white are properly mixed. Apply a layer of that egg on the meat. Rub the steaks with your fingers so that the salt, oyster sauce and egg are well mixed (engineers call it 'homogeneous') and that they gets deep into the meat.


Heat the pan and oil. First, fry the onions and the garlic until they are golden brown. Then put in the potatoes and stir-fry them.

On the other pan. Do the same, i.e. heat the pan and oil and then fry the onions and garlic. Once you can smell the wonderful aroma from the golden brown onions, push them to the side of the pan. Place the steaks in the middle. Cook with low heat and slowly let the steaks cook from the bottom-up.




When the potatoes are fried to golden brown, put in the tomatoes and squash them so that all that juice comes out oozing onto the pan.

On the other pan, flip the steaks. Wait. And then repeat after 5 minutes. Finally, once the steaks are properly cooked, you can now apply the onions and garlic (which was push aside earlier) on top of the steaks.


Now, just place the potatoes and the steak side-by-side on the plate and wahlaa.....the final masterpiece!!!!


It was more or less an experiment. And it was a success because it tastes sooooooo goooood!! Well, I like onions and garlic so it can't be bad. But it turned out to be much better, much better than what I thought it would be.

=D

Happy Valentine's Day.
