One Pot Shrimp and Noodle - Episode 166

This One Pot Shrimp and Noodle recipe was so good that I actually made it two nights in a row. The first night I made it with chicken skin in the "bottom layer", and the second night I made it with bacon in the "bottom layer", as shown in this recipe. Everything else was identical in every way. Both versions were amazing and amazingly both versions were very different by making this one simple change. Glass noodles and shrimp alike are great flavor carriers. They both take on the flavor of whatever they are cooked with, which is why changing the fatty ingredient, either chicken skin or bacon, made this recipe have two completely different flavor profiles. I will be trying this again very soon and will more than likely try it with a different fatty ingredient. The Cameraman suggested chorizo, but I am thinking mackerel.

Sichuan Pork Ragu บะหมี่เสฉวน - Episode 164

Well, let me restate, I did practice it once, and then turned on the camera to film it the second time. This Sichuan Pork Ragu recipe came from a friend of mine who had made a vegan version of it. I recreated her vegan recipe, but added a healthy dose of ground pork.

Vietnamese Noodle Salad สลัดเวียดนาม - Episode 160

Vietnamese Noodle Salad สลัดเวียดนาม - Episode 160

Vietnamese Noodle Salad สลัดเวียดนาม(bún gà nướng) is one of those classic dishes that has made Vietnamese food popular around the world. I have been getting this dish at a local Vietnamese restaurant for a few years now and I finally decided to make it myself. I am really glad that I did, because this recipe is amazing. It's going to have a permanent place in my rotation. Since I am Thai, I tend to like my food a little spicy. The original restaurant version of this dish isn't spicy at all, so I was happy to add a Thai pepper and bring a little heat in the dressing. It was just enough to give a small hint of heat, without taking away from any of the fresh flavors.

Thai Hot Pot สุกี้ อร่อยง่ายได้ที่บ้าน - Episode 151

Thai Hot Pot สุกี้ อร่อยง่ายได้ที่บ้าน - Episode 151

Thai Hot Pot (or Suki) is a Thai version of a classic Asian Hot Pot. It is basically just a hodg-podg of various vegetables and meats that are boiled in a basic broth. While it sounds simple, the flavors that develop in the broth can become pretty complex and delicious as the meal draws out. As the vegetables and meats cook in the broth over time, the broth becomes a very unique soup for everyone to enjoy. The great thing about hot pot is that you don't really need to follow any set rules. You can use your favorite ingredients to ensure that you really get a meal that you will love. No two hot pots need ever be the same when you think about it this way. You can even do vegetarian version if want.
