    Trinity :
    Since i'd like to be made a saint after I've died, I found this somewhere.

    More Malaysian delicacies.

    As for your fried rice,

    • 1 portion of overnight cooked rice
      whatever meat you want (even leftovers !!)
      eggs 1 or 2
      mixture of vegetables (green peas, carrots, finely chopped beans)
      dried anchovies (optional, might be a bit difficult to find for you)
      soy sauce (dark and light) or salt
      vegetable oil

    Method :
    Pour in oil (1-2 tablespoon)
    fry anchovies till crispy
    fry meat
    vegetables (dont' make it too soft)
    pour in rice and stir very very thoroughly (turn down heat)
    add soy sauce or salt (depending on your colour preference)
    if you've got oyster sauce add it in too, but just a bit.
    then stir even more thoroughly
    serve piping hot.

    For eggs there are 2 options. You can either fry it separately (sunny side up, omellete and sliced, scrambled and sprinkled over rice) or you can fry it the first step (i.e. before the anchovies). Make sure the eggs are all cooked before adding any other ingredients.

    Other things you can substitute, tomato sauce (and even bbq sauce) for soy sauce, add a sprinkling of curry powder (same time as meat, and again optional) if you add tomato sauce, or you can even add some chopped chilli. If you have deep fried shallots, sprinkle before serving. Other things to sprinkle before serving
    chopped fresh lettuce
    chopped spring onions
    chopped chilli

    In fact there are so many variations, you can always just make up your own. Go on and experiment !!

    This is a bachelor student version, so cost, hassle and the number of items to wash are the key factors taken into account. Of course wash all items before cooking (except the eggs silly...). Remember, anything that doesn't taste good WILL taste good with the addition of chilli sauce.

    Ah... I have so much free time..

    I wish I had the cash for this...

    Kobe Steak Recipe

    12-ounce New York strip steak
    Cracked black pepper
    Olive oil
    Sea salt

    Remove steaks from the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 450-500°. Place an empty black cast iron skillet on the stovetop on high setting for 8 to 12 minutes. The pan should be very hot.

    Dry-rub both sides of the steak with cracked black pepper. Lightly cover bottom of pan with just enough olive oil to prevent steak from sticking. Immediately place the steaks in the pan. Sear each steak for 2 minutes per side, turning with tongs (never press down on steak with spatula or stick with a fork). Then, using a hot pad, place the skillet and steaks in the 450° preheated oven and cook for 2 minutes for medium rare, 3 to 4 minutes for medium.

    Remove the skillet from the oven with a hot pad.

    Place steak on a warm plate and immediately top with 1 teaspoon of butter. Lightly dust with sea salt, to taste.

    Allow steaks to stand for 3 to 4 minutes and serve. Enjoy!

    :drool: ,,,,With rice... :shifty:
