Cooking in a flash

09 May 2019

(Recipes compiled by Rodelia Villar, DWC founder and administrator)

This issue we’re focusing on some dishes that one can cook in a rush - save for one: a mouth-watering baby back ribs dish that takes a lot of time and patience to pull off. As this dish needs no less than 10 hours to prepare and cook, it could only be finger-lickin good.

On the other hand we have a fried pork chop dish that can be cooked in a jiffy after marinating for at least an hour.

Then we have an interesting chicken dish cooked with Coke (the real thing), and two tofu dishes to soothe the palate, both taking only a few minutes to prepare.

All these dishes were shared by very helpful administrators and members of the self-help Facebook group, Domestic Workers Corner, which aims to help newly arrived Filipino domestic helpers in Hong Kong adapt to working and living in the city.

Through their help, it can be assumed many of the workers are relieved of at least one challenge - that of cooking the Chinese way.
