I woke up to see that my blog entry recorded over 6,000 hits overnight. I also managed to read some of your comments. 

I didn't expect that my entry would generate so much interest. It wasn't a formal or researched article. I only wrote it while I was cooking TWICE COOKED PORK.

Oh that dish took soooo long to make! soooo many steps. 

First I had to boil the strip of pork belly for 45 mins. Then, I had to freeze it. Lastly, I had to deal with all the oil splatter when I put the bean paste on the pan. Fireworks Talaga! I had to use an elbow length oven mitt because the splatters were hot.

I got this beautiful builtNY red mitt from RUSTANS.  I like that it's red and neoprene. It's easy to clean. I just throw it into the washing machine.

Here's a picture of my modified twice cooked pork. It's important to use LEE KUM KEE soy sauce when you season the dish. Don't use toyo. Baka mag-lasang adobo.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to write your comments. What will be even better though, is if you share your stories: HAPPY ENDING or TRAGEDY. Doesn't matter. 

SHARE! Send to

 I will post the best ones.

Matagal pa akong magluluto ng twice cooked pork ulit. So until then, your stories will be up on this house wife's blog.
