Barbeque Pork Chops

This is very easy to cook, but very tasty as well. =)


2 pcs pork chops
1/2 cup banana ketchup
3 tablespoons soysauce
4 tablespoons honey mustard sauce
1 cup mixed vegetables (you can buy this in the grocery)
2 tablespoons butter

Mix the ketchup and soysauce then marinate the porkchops into the mixture overnight. Grill the marinated porkchops over low heat until well-done. Spread the honey mustard sauce on both sides of the porkchops right after they are taken off the grill.

On a pan, melt butter, put in the mixed vegetables. Serve along with the barbequed chops.

Pineapple Chicken

This will not get a passing mark for photography classes. Well, I'm not really into food photography, and I have but a point-and-shoot digicam to work with, so please be forgiving of how the meal presentation looks like.

Anyway, this food experiment started when I discovered a bunch of sliced pineapples sitting in my refrigerator that were already getting too ripe for me to eat. So I decided to do another cooking experiment: pineapple chicken! I sliced and crushed the pineapples, got 5 pieces of chicken drumsticks, and started on my culinary laboratory work.


5 pieces chicken drumsticks

1 cup of crushed pineapple

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tbsp sugar

5 cloves garlic

1 onion

1 cup vegetable oil

Marinate chicken in crushed pineapple and soy sauce for at least 2 hours (I did mine overnight). Pour oil into pre-heated pan, sautee garlic and onion. Add the chicken pieces and cover. When chicken is half-cooked, add the pineapple marinade. Let boil on low heat until chicken is completely cooked.

Buttered Shrimps in Oyster Sauce

I got this recipe from Ate Chai, one of our churchmates who cooks really good. She told me to just marinate the shrimps in Spirte or 7-UP, cook it in butter and add oyster sauce. Sounded simple right? So when I got myself a kilo of shrimps from the supermarket, I decided to use half of the shrimps to try this new recipe.

1/2 kilo of shrimp
2 cups Sprite or 7-UP
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons oyster sauce

1. Marinate Shrimps in Sprite or 7-UP for at least 2 hours (I did mine overnight).

2. Melt butter into pan then sautee shrimps in butter.

3. Once shrimps turn orange in color, put in oyster sauce.

4. Let it simmer for around 5 to 10 minutes. You can add a little Sprite if the sauce gets a little too thick.

5. Serves 1-2 persons.
