Spicy Pork Strips

Saturday, January 30, 2010




RED ALERT! ….. Red is in the range at the moment, hahah, at least during the Chinese New Year time. From China ancient times, red colour is considered as an auspicious colour and its used whenever there’s something to celebrate; may it be birthdays, weddings, or the birth of a child in the house.

As CNY is nearing, i decided to join in the festive mood and cook this red hot dish for dinner. It’s easy enough and it’s a good addition to my very own list of new recipes. Yum!
