Oreo Pudding

August 10, 2020

Topday I make an Oreo Pudding.

First, I make the chocolate pudding using plain pudding powder mix with 28gr of chocolate powder and 120gr sugar (using 850ml water). Then put it inside the pudding mold (you can use square mold). Reserve a little chocolate pudding for oreo topping.

Wait for it to be hard 75%. Random spread 1 table spoon of the reserve chocolate pudding, so if we put the Oreo, it can stick into the bottom.

Why we use this reserve pudding? Because, if you put the Oreo in The main pudding that still hard 50%, it could destroy the pudding because the Oreo is heavier than the pudding surface. And if you put it on the pudding that have 75% hard, it won’t be sticky. So we use reserve pudding, to make it sticky but won’t destroy the main pudding.

After put all Oreo in the pudding surface, random spread the remain reserve pudding above the Oreo.

Second, we make milk pudding. I use 750ml full cream milk, and 110gr sugar, mix it with plain pudding powder.

After the reserve pudding above the oreo is hard enough, pour the milk pudding into it, and keep it on refrigerator so it could be hard.

There’s oreo inside the pudding

Enjoy…

Beef Teriyaki vs Beef Garlic (2)

July 10, 2020

Tteokbokki

July 08, 2020

I’m craving for Tteokbokki.

Tteok-bokki (떡볶이; also spelled ddukbokki) or stir-fried rice cakes is a popular Korean food made from small-sized garae-tteok (long, white, cylinder-shaped rice cakes) called tteokmyeon (떡면; “rice cake noodles”) or commonly tteok-bokki-tteok (떡볶이 떡; “tteok-bokki rice cakes”). Eomuk (fish cakes), boiled eggs, and scallions are some common ingredients paired with tteok-bokki in dishes. It can be seasoned with either spicy gochujang (chili paste) or non-spicy ganjang (soy sauce)-based sauce; the former being the most typical form, while the latter is less common and sometimes called gungjung-tteok-bokki (royal court tteok-bokki).

Today, variations also include curry-tteok-bokkicream sauce-tteok-bokkijajang-tteok-bokkiseafood-tteok-bokkigalbi-tteok-bokki and so on. Tteok-bokki is commonly purchased and eaten at bunsikjip (snack bars) as well as pojangmacha (street stalls). There are also dedicated restaurants for tteok-bokki, where it is referred to as jeugseog tteok-bokki (impromptu tteok-bokki). It is also a popular home dish, as the rice cakes (garae-tteok) can be purchased in pre-packaged, semi-dehydrated form.

I bought gochujang but already expired. And I found this recipe without gochujang in internet (I forgot the website url). But I have modificated this recipe, because I didn’t like spicy.

Recipe:

  • Tteokbokki (I bought it from supermarket, the package is using vacuum and freeze one)
  • 4 pcs minced garlic
  • 2 pcs shallot / onion
  • 6 pcs Bird’s Eye Chilli (puree)
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 6 tablespoon Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Salty Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Sugar
  • Chile Powder
  • Leek
  • Water
  • You can add another ingredients such as boiled egg, sausage, cheese, eomuk, etc.

How to Cook?

Fry the garlic, onion, and bird’s eye chili in the butter, until smelling. Then pour the tomato sauce, mayonnaise, soy sauce, oyster sauce into it, give a little water (if you like the sauce to be thick, don’t give too much water). Pour the sugar, mixed it well. Taste it, if you think it’s not spicy enough, you can add the chili powder. If you like sweet, you can add the sugar.

Then when you think the taste is good and water height or volume is enough for your taste, put the tteokboki inside, and boiled it. Don’t boiled it too long because the tteokbokki will too soft and it’s sticky.

Serve in a plate and put some boiled egg and the cheese (look for melted one, so when the cheese put inside the sauce, it will melted and taste wonderful).

This is one of my favourite canned food, Canned pork luncheon meat. The brand name is Ma Ling. I always fried it with eggs or you can make Ma Ling Soup.

When I don’t know what to eat, this canned food is one of most simple food for lunch or dinner.

Beef Teriyaki vs Beef Garlic (1)

Because Pandemic Corona, we must spend most of our time at home. And for someone that rarely cook, will try looking for some recipe to cook.

When I went to Supermarker, I always see this Beef Slice. And this time, I decided to buy it.

The beef meat name is Short Plate Beef.

Under the rib cut, the short plate has the lower short ribs, also called agujas cortas. Short Plate Beef is a forequarter cut from the belly of the cow, just below the rib cut. It is typically a cheap, tough, and fatty meat. In U.K. butchery, this cut is considered part of the brisket.

I bought some Teriyaki Sauce. I want to try to marinated the beef with two kind of taste: Teriyaki and Salty.

  1. First Sauce: mix Teriyaki Sauce, minced garlic, a little salt and sugar.
  2. Second Sauce: mix Salty Soy Sauce, minced garlic, and a litte sugar.

Marinated The beef with each sauce for about 20 minutes. And grilled it.

And the result:
