While Tom is gone for the business trip, I usually settle myself with simple and quick meal. Don't bother to make anything special just for 1 serving.

But today I am going to do something fancy to pamper myself. Sesame ginger Chicken or pork kidney is a popular dish in the month of confinement for a Chinese woman after giving birth to a child, it is very nourishing. It is definitely not a dish for regular/ daily meal as the combination of sesame oil and ginger will bring heat to your body, this is not recommended for those people with high blood pressure.

Tom doesn't like the taste of pork kidney, can't stand the urine odor. But if you clean it completely, the smell will go away. I soaked in the hot water for an hour and rinse it few times before cook. Since I am home alone, I can cook something I have been long craving for and don't have to cook a separate meal for him. :-)


I didn't really measure my ingredients, they are adjustable according to your preference.

1. 1 tbsp thin ginger strips
2. 1 tbsp sesame oil
3. 3 chicken wings - cut to portions
4. 1 pork kidney - clean well, cut to approx. 1.5" chunks , soaked in hot water for an hours, rinse it thoroughly.
5. 500~600ml water
6. Salt to taste
7. Some Shao Xing Wine

Steps :
1. In a heated sauce pan, fragrant the ginger, add in chicken wings, stir fry for 2~3 minutes.
2. Add in water, bring to boil. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
3. Add in pork kidney and bring to boil again.
4. Salt to taste.
5. Add some Shao Xin wine before remove from heat

TOM 不在的时候, 我都是吃得很简单, 有时候一个荷包蛋加酱油配白饭就是一餐了. 没什么心情煮, 再说, 一个人的量真的不好煮.

话说我自己本身超爱吃麻油的, 又喜欢吃猪腰(虽然有些人会觉得很恶心), 但是如果是自己在家里弄, 彻底的清洗干净, 就不会有什么味道了. TOM 不吃....趁现在他不在, 我就煮一道自己喜欢吃的来奖赏自己吧!!!! 汤如果有剩, 还可以加点面线哦...

虽然很爱, 但是我不是时常都会煮这道菜, 热量高, 也会造成身体 热气也高, 我在想哦.... 如果有一天我做月子的时候每天都吃..., 会不会从此以后就不敢吃了???


  1. 嘻嘻。。。你这道菜也是很营养。我看你一个人,一定是分两餐吃。以前我单身的时候,也是一个人住。只有等周末,才煮一两道跟我的房东分享。所以最开心的人,就是她。。。

  2. 我也超爱吃猪腰,尤其是配煮黄酒的.有时候我还会炒姜葱,上碟前再加入两,三汤匙量的黄酒也是很美味的.


  3. Anncoo, 你说对了, 分两餐才不感觉有罪恶感, 高热量嘛!! 我以前也是在周末的时候煮好吃的跟我房东分享, 结果到最后他们每次都买好料来给我煮....嘻嘻..

  4. Potato...说真的, 我好爱吃月子餐咧...可能是都加了麻油的关系吧...想一想, 改天可能要煮一道甜醋猪脚来解馋了...

  5. Hi Wendy,

    I found this blog as I was hunting for a recipe for making Pandan Layer cake as a Malaysian friend suggested I try that.

    I am also here in AZ ! :) I saw that you go to Mekong to buy groceries, so do I :) I am from Singapore actually and used to go to ASU but am working now. I have a group of friends here who are all working now, some from Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and China. We get together almost weekly to hang, eat, and sometimes potluck, and we would love for U to join us.

    I dun see anywhere I can email you, thus I left a message here on your comment board. Do let me know here if you would want to meet up with us.

    Again thanks for your recipe !

  6. Hi Lester, thanks for writing to me. I am so happy to have another opportunity to know more people from Malaysia or Singapore. You may email me at Talk to you later. :-)

  7. Hi Wendy, Happy Easter Day! I've an award for you, please come and pick it up when you're free.

  8. Hi Anncoo..thank you!! I appreciate that! :-)
