Korean Ginseng Chicken

The Korean Ginseng Chicken is a lot less herbal-ly than the Chinese version. I've never been a fan of Ginseng Chicken, it's more like my dad's thing. He's obsessed with ordering it every time we go to a Korean restaurant. My mother is a big fan of it.....for the dogs. My parents insist on slow-cooking a pot and a whole chicken, shredding meticulously the softened chicken meat for my precious 3 dogs.

I digress...

This is my version of Korean/Chinese Ginseng Chicken. The pressure cooker is my best friend as it speeds the process up by heaps.




Chinese New Year Belated Post - Yu Sheng/Loh Hei

Easy-to-make (alright, assemble) right in the comfort of home. Just add Salmon sashimi, although T, a dear Singaporean friend, mentioned the traditional Yu Sheng is meant to be accompanied by a certain type of fish.

First off, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
