Delicious Thai Spareribs

I went to Venlo, Netherland last week and bought some grocery goods that are expensive in Germany. I also bought 2 kilos of ribs (Hohe Rippe). Akala ko kasi pwede pa kaming mag grill for the last time bago mag Herbst (autumn). Well, hindi natuloy ang plano ko dahil naging busy kami so I decided to keep the meat in the freezer. Now that we have time, umuulan naman at talagang malamig na sa labas. So wala ng pag-asa pang makapag grill. What am I going to do with the meat? I decided to marinate it and bake it ala…Thai Spareribs. The result was amazing. My hubby who normally doesn’t like ribs nearly eat everything .

Now here is the recipe if you are interested.

Thai Spareribs.

6 servings:

Ingredients:

*Please take note, you have to marinate the meat for 12 hours.

1 ½ kilo spareribs (please buy hohe Rippe and not the Rippchen)
2 lemon (Limetten) sliced (for decoration)

Marinade:
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. white pepper (weisser Pfeffer)
2 to 3 tablespoons chili sauce (Chilisauce)
4 tablespoons fish sause (Fischsauce) or known as Patis
2 tablespoons cooking oil (Öl)
1 tablespoon honey (Honig)
2 tablespoons sesame oil (Sesamöl)

Procedure:

Mix ingredients for the marinade in large bowl and place meat in it. Cover and marinate for 12 hours or more. Turn the meat several times. Drain liquid from the meat and save for basting. Place meat in a pan and roast for 45 minutes or until meat is cooked. Baste frequently with marinade. Smell is wonderful!!! Guten Appetit

Walang Magawa

Kumusta mga mahal ko sa puso? Kayo ba ay namimilipit na rin sa lamig katulad ko? Kinakamuhian ko ang taglamig na season pero kahit papaano ito may kabutihan ding nagagawa sa akin. Kapag ganitong panahon lang kasi nananahimik ang ilong kong parang sirang gripo (hehehe…tulo kasi ng tulo eh). Haay meron kasi akong hay fever eh kaya once na magsisimula na ang springtime para na ako niyang naputulan ng allowance (mukha kasing umiiyak). Tulo luha sabay tulo din ng sipon at ang kasunod ay Hachiiinggg!!! Naalala ko pala noong ako’y kumukuha pa lang ng lisensiya sa pagmamaneho ng sasakyan. Tuwing umaga ang aking driving lesson tapos nagkaton pang springtime yon. Kaya ayon, oras na ako ay humahatsing…nagiging zigzag ang takbo ng sasakyan lalong-lalo na kapag ako ay sumisinga. Eh siyempre dahil baguhan palang hindi ko pa kayang hawakan ang steering wheel ng isang kamay. Siguro dahil sa takot nitong aking Fahrschullehrer (driving teacher) na mabangga kami…siya na lagi ang humawak nito kapag inaataki na naman ako.

Well anyway, kaya ko nabanggit ang tungkol sa aking hay fever, sipon at luha dahil nag surf ako kanina and I bumped into a quiz site Tickle. Ang pinili kong quiz was about “What Do Your Handbag Contents Reveal?” May isang tanong doon na, ano daw ang laman ng bag ko na I would feel very uneasy or uncomfortable without it? Sayang at hindi kasama sa sagot ang tissue paper dahil para akong maloloka kong wala ito.

So here is the result of the quiz:

Fe, your handbag contents tells us that you live your life on the hop! A free spirit! You sparkle with spontaneity. You’re calm, cool and casual. A laid-back woman like you takes only what she needs around with her — everything you need to be organised but not overloaded. Less is more, and that’s how you like it. You know how to sort out what you really want and need from frivolous extras that aren’t a necessity.

Ayayay…ito ay tutuong-tuo!

So ano nga ba ang laman ng bag ko? Ang nasa loob nito ay mga importanteng bagay na talagang kailangan ko lang.

So tingnan natin kong ano ang mga nakalapag diyan sa piktyur. From the right: is my wallet, reading glass, cellphone, two lipstick, face powder, on the upper side ay ang aking pinakamahal na tissue paper. From the bottom: my car keys, my pen with 32 mb memory stick and two lip liner. And oh my medicine nga rin pala, iyan yang nakapatong sa ibabaw ng wallet. O di ba at si Beng ay wala talagang magawa dahil pati ba naman ang bagay na ito ay pinagkaabalahan pa.

Oh heyyy…umaga na pala ibig sabihin September 28 na ngayon. One year na si nakakaantok kong blog. Hello blog HAPI BERSDEY :bday: :candle:

Buko Pandan

Buko Pandan

Servings: 8

Ingredients: (you can buy all ingredients in any asian store / alle Zutaten sind im Asia Laden erhältlich)

4 packs frozen young coconut (buko – junge Kokosnuss)
1 packet green Agar-Agar powder or gelatine
2 tsps. pandan flavouring
2 tsps. Lye Water
1 can sweetened milk
1 cup whip cream (1 Becher frische Schlagsahne)
250 gram sugar

Procedure:

First of all, you have to defrost buko before you start preparing the rest of the recipe. Dissolve Agar-Agar powder in 1 ½ litre of water. Add 250g sugar, stir and bring to boil over low heat. Add lye water and pandan flavour and stir well. Pour into a shallow pan and allow to cool.

Pour sweetened milk and whip cream into a large deep bowl and toss to blend well. Cut chilled Agar-Agar into cubes. Then add buko and Agar-Agar cubes into the mixture and chill before serving.

P.S

To those who are having difficulties finding frozen young coconut, here’s the picture of the said product. Meron ding nasa nasa lata but it taste nothing so you’d better ask the store owner if they can order the frozen one for you. It’s imported from Thailand.
