SIMPLE & QUICK CHINESE NEW YEAR RECIPES – PORK TROTTER WITH DRIED MUSHROOMS, OYSTERS AND SEA MOSS 发财好事‏

By

Hi there

So have you cooked something special this past Reunion dinner, or at least get stuffed with so much good food cooked by your family or relatives? If your answer is no, then why not cook it for yourselves. I have here some Chinese New Year simple and quick recipes.

Pig Trotter with Sea Moss Dried Mushroom and Oysters

This dish is Trotter with Dried Mushrooms and Oysters, the dish itself is already very auspicious to have during Chinese New Year with its name that sounded like 发财好事‏ and it is really tasty as well, because of the essence of the dried mushroom and oysters, plus the collagen from the trotter and succulent tender meat from the lean meat. This dish is always loved by adults during this festive season. 🙂

Pig Trotter with Sea Moss Dried Mushroom and Oysters

So for  ingredients, you may be quite surprise by how simple it is : (can feed 8 pax)

  • Dried Oyster x 100 gram or around 8 – 10 pcs
  • Dried Mushroom x 10 pcs
  • Sea Moss x 1 bunch, about quarter of a palm size
  • Pork Trotter x 6 large pcs
  • Lean Meat (optional) for people who are not very keen in trotter
  • Lee Kum Kee Oyster Sauce (a must) x 2 tablespoon
  • Dark soya sauce x 2 tablespoon
  • Garlic x 3 cloves (leave the skin on but cut the base away)

* Above are really all estimates, feel free to plus / minus any ingredients, but basically all must be used to give that wonderful flavor, and the sea moss, dark soya sauce with oyster sauce binds all the ingedients together.

Directions :

1) Cleanse all ingredients with hot water, lightly flushed any impurities in the sea moss and dried oyster. Soak the dried mushroom for a while to soften and rehydrate it. Boil the trotter for about 1 min in hot boiling water before remove any hair on the pig skin with a tweezer. Discard all water.

2) Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in the wok or pan, sauteed the garlic for 15 secs

3) Place the trotters in the wok and slightly seared the trotter for about 1 min

4) Pick the trotter out and place in half a pot of water (for me, we cooked in a clay pot), water need not to be heated, as it is always better to cook stew from normal temperature water so that the meat will turn out even more succulent.

5) After water started to boil, place dried mushroom and oyster into the pot.

6) Pour in both oyster sauce and dark soya sauce to own likings. My estimate is about 2 tablespoon each, but oyster sauce can put more. Taste as you cook until you are happy with the flavor 🙂

7) Let it stew for about 20 mins and place the sea moss in it, and cook until the trotter is tender, by using a chop stick, if you can poke thru the trotter that means it is done. During the stewing process, remember to stir the base in case of burning.

8) Tuck In!

To me the most important thing in this dish is to use Lee Kum Kee oyster sauce, it gives a very distinct flavor to it and you will not look back once you use it. 🙂

It also taste even better after sitting overnight, and this can be eaten throughout Chinese New Year to ring in the prosperity this season. 🙂
