Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus



Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus. I had a pack of fresh black fungi in my ref. which was sitting for some time. It did take a few days before I could think of what to cook out of it. We Pinoy are more familiar with the dried ones called “Tenga’n Daga” which literally means rat ear. Black fungus or would it be fungi are usually used in cooking pansit, the more popular one is Cebu’s Bam-i.






On today’s dish, Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus, I simply braised the whole black fungi together with pork and fried tofu with some soy sauce, oyster sauce and Hoisin sauce with some star anise to pump up the aroma. This is done by simmering at low heat for about an hour and a half.






Here is the recipe of my Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus.








Ingredients:



250 grams pork belly cut into large cubes

1 big block, firm tofu, cut into rectangles, fried and cut into cubes

100 grams fresh black fungus

1/2 head garlic, peeled, crushed

2-3 pcs. bay leaf

2-3 pieces star anise

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp. Hoisin sauce

1/4 cup oyster sauce

2-3 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. ground peppercorns

1/4 cup cornstarch

salt

cooking oil

3-4 boiled egg, shelled








Cooking procedure:



Place the pork, fried tofu, garlic, ground peppercorns, bay leaf, star anise, soy sauce and black fungi in a medium size sauce pan. Add enough water to about 2 inches above the meat line. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hour at low to medium heat, add more water as necessary. Now add in the boiled eggs, oyster sauce, Hoisin sauce and sugar, continue to simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the liquid I reduced to about half. Correct saltiness if required.

Ginataang Ampalaya



Ginataang Ampalaya. To Bicolanos most likely vegetables are cooked with coconut, even the bitter guard or ampalaya. Today I would like to share how I cooked my Ginataang Ampalaya, one of my favorite Bicolano vegetable dish cooked with coconut milk. For the “sahog” instead usual healthier tinapa, I used pork and some prawns or shrimp. I also added some sautéed salted shrimp krill or “bagoong alamang” to make it pungent to compensate the coconut oily taste and spiciness from the hot chilies. The ampalaya shall be cut in thin slices and should be slightly overcooked to overcome the raw taste of ampalaya.






If you have been a pan of ampalaya then Ginataang Amplaya is strongly recommended to try, you will surely enjoy love it.






Here is the recipe of my Ginattang Ampalaya.







Ingredients:



2-3 large size ampalaya, trimmed, deseeded, cut into thin slices.

2 cups pork, boiled, cut into thin strips

2 cups small to medium size shrimp, shelled

1-2 tbsp. sautéed salted shrimp krill, bagoong alamang

1 big can, canned coconut cream

1/2 head garlic, peeled, chorused, chopped

1 medium size onion, peeled, chopped

1-2 tsp. chili flakes

3-5 hot chili

2-3 tbsp. fish sauce

salt

cooking oil








Cooking procedure:



In a wok or large frying pan, heat generous amount of cooking oil, sauté the garlic and onion until fragrant. Stir in the pork and continue to stir cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the chili flakes, chilies, bagoong alamang and fish sauce. Stir cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Now add in 3/4 of the coconut cream and about 1 1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the liquid is reduced to about half, stirring occasionally. Add in the shrimp, ampalaya and remaining coconut cream, continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until the ampalaya start to be lumpy, stir once in a while only just to avoid burning at the bottom. Correct saltiness if required. Serve with a lot of rice.
