20-minute Sous Vide Beef Salad Bowl

Besides ready-cooked duck, another ready-cooked item tried and tested in our family kitchen recently is this Sous Vide Sliced Grass-Fed Beef Sirloin from Cuisine Solution, sold at Costco.


If you remember our wallet-friendly Budget Steak Chuck Roast Beef Salad that demanded more prep-and-cook time, ready-cooked items like Sous Vide Sliced Grass-Fed Beef Sirloin takes about 10 minutes to reheat. SO. MUCH. EASIER. The time required, essentially, is the time to prep.(rinse & slice) and cook the vegetables. This Sous Vide Sliced Grass-Fed Beef Sirloin works seamlessly with protein-veggie bowls, making possible this 20-minute Sous Vide Beef Salad Bowl.


Easy Vegetables Curry

During the cold winter months, we still have our vegetables but MAKE IT BETTER.

YESsss! Spice them up!

Vegetables curries like this Roasted Vegetables Spiced Curry or Sayur Lodeh-style Vegetable Curry are exceptionally satisfying during this time of the year as the spices warm us up from the inside (our belly!) to the outside.


This is an easy one-pot recipe for a comforting mildly-spiced vegetable curry.


Oven-Baked/ Roasted Milkfish Belly

I only knew what milkfish was a few years ago while travelling in Tainan, Southern Taiwan where milkfish rice-porridge and pan-fried milkfish belly are traditional breakfast items in this city.

Milkfish has good nutritional value - high in niacin and Vitamin B12, phosphorus, selenium. Similar to other oily fish e.g. sardines and salmon; milkfish is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - "nutrients" for the brain.
