My battle with the flu has tested my faith. It is so easy to believe something that we can see or touch. I wanted so badly to know that God was there for me. My Dad, and my blogger friends, thanks for praying for me. Your comments meant a lot to me. It is what keeps me going.
I know, I know. I should rest, instead of blogging. I tried to rest as much as I can but the cough kept me awake. I went back to read yesterday’s daily devotional readings from Streams in the Desert.
Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly. (James 5:17)
Elijah did not stop praying. He paid no attention to what he saw. In spite of utterly hopeless reports received from sight, he continued to pray.
Roast Pork / Siew Yoke
A few years ago, Mom made this when she visited us in the US. When I saw the recipe on Lily’s website, I was determined to try it. Since I was still not feeling well, I only ate a couple of pieces. However, my daughters loved them. Even my husband who is on low cholesterol diet could not resist the temptation. He ate the non-fat part.
I used a ziploc bag to marinate the pork strips. Marinate includes salt, pepper, sugar and five spiced powder.
The pork strip will stand nicely with rind side up with skewars inserted on each end. I used a drip-pan over a regular baking sheet pan to drain the extra fat. I set my convection oven on broiler and on high. In less than 3 minutes, there was lots of smoke inside the oven. The skin began to crackle in less than 5 minutes. I turned off the heat and reset the oven to bake at 450 degrees fahrenheit. Make sure you have good ventilation, open the windows if it is too smoky inside the kitchen. After about 40 minutes or so, I check the meat. Most of it were cooked, so I turned off the oven. When I was chopping the meat, I noticed a few pieces looked reddish, so, I put it back into the warmed oven.
