Misses my mum's dish

MUM's dishes is always my favourites. I guess everyone will agreed with me because your mum's dishes is always YOUR favourites. Right!.......^^

This is one of my mum's dish that i misses and love very very much.



This is a sweet tasted dish, it is pork belly and yam as the main ingredients. The sauce is simple and you can even do extra for later use. The pork belly is so tender after hours of steaming especailly the skin it is so smooth and the texture is so smooth and jelly like when you give it a bite. I still remember when we were little, my mum use to make this dish on special occasion. It will be a very big portion for the whole family.

Because I like this dish very much so I learn to DIY it, I asked the recipe from mum but mum did not have a proper measurement recipe. Thanks to YUM YUM MAGAZINE Vol.26 (this recipe is from chef 郭子仁) I found this recipe and it is so similar to my mum's. I did add a little ingredients and method of my mum though...^^
