Carbo Carbo

Meaty Pork Bone Grilled Beef Viet-Sing Rice Noodle Soup

We are supposed to cut down on our Carbo intake, as just me alone I have 10 stubborn kgs to lose... But I really love rice, vermicelli and noodles and the last weekend found me making Rice Noodle Soup and Fried Vermicelli back to back. Aiiiya...

Fried Bee Hoon with Broad Beans, Bean Sprouts, Cooked Ham, Fried Omelette and Fried Onions

I called my Rice Noodle Soup Viet-Sing as I couldn't decide on whether to make a Vietnamese Pho or a Singapore Bah Kut Teh and ended up combining methods and ingredients. Very rich pork bone stock cooked beforehand and kept overnight so as to be able to de-fat it. Fennel bulb, clove-studded onion, cinnamon, star anise, ginger, loads of garlic, Bah Kut Teh spices, fish sauce, dark soy sauce... Beef grilled steak-form and then sliced and served with the soup. Garnish with mint leaves, coriander leaves, bean sprouts, lemon slice, fried shallots...

Yummy...I still have a bowl of the soup leftover, I'll heat it up and eat it with egg noodles and a new batch of Pig's Blood that I've managed to procure.

Roberto, it'll be the 1st and last time you mention our 1st names in my blog!

And yes, the Dugands are always late. I would say by an hour on average :-).

BTW, your wife cooks very well and she is even making a living out of it now, so you are the one who has a restaurant at home!

Cheers and thanks for dropping by.
