Bak Kut Teh (Pork Ribs Tea Soup) in Philips Pressure Cooker

Philips Electric Pressure Cooker is a good kitchen helper. It is definitely helpful in terms of shortening meal preparation time. This round, I’m cooking my version of pork ribs soup. Just put in all the ingredients, and when cooking is done, just serve it with blanched enoki mushroom and Romaine lettuce. Enjoy!

Bak Kut Teh (Pork Ribs Tea Soup)
Cooked in Philips Electric Pressure Cooker
Serves 5-6

450gm of pork ribs, chopped into pieces
250gm of pork belly, cut into bite size
20 meatballs
6 caps of dried shiitake mushroom, dehydrated and stalk removed
200gm of enoki mushroom, cut-off the bottom part and cleaned
3 bulbs of garlic, cleaned, leave the skin on
40gm of bak kut teh spices mix (I use a packet of "Claypot" brand Bakuteh Kau)
Romaine lettuce 
1 liter water

1 tbsp of oyster sauce
1/2 tsp of dark soy sauce (for coloring)
light soy sauce to taste

Dipping Sauce (Mix-up all):
3-5 cloves of chopped garlic
a handful bird's eye chili, chopped
1 tsp of dark soy sauce
light soy sauce to cover the chopped garlic and chili
juice of 2-3 calamansi

1. Put all the ingredients and seasonings, except the Romaine lettuce and enoki mushroom into the internal pot.
2. Place the top lid onto the electric pressure cooker and turn it clockwise to get it locked. Select the “Beef/Mutton” menu, and ensure that the vent is closed and pointed to wards pressure cooking.
3. Blanch the enoki mushroom for 1 minutes, drain and set aside.
4. When the soup is completed with the cooking process, leave it for a few minutes until the pressure is released.
5. Add in the enoki mushroom and lettuce. Serve hot with rice and the dipping sauce.

Make to Order Breakfast, Waroeng of Jeeva Klui Resort

I enjoyed the every moment through out the stay at Jeeva Klui Resort. I always look forward to dine at their "Waroeng" - the open air cafe. We chose our favorite dining table by the pool. We loved to enjoyed sea side view, the fresh breeze and of course the make to order breakfast. Fabulous. Oh, my tummy is growling now while writing this post. 

While seated, a glass of fresh fruit juice of your choice and coffee/ tea will be served. You can select from the breakfast menu ranges from Tropical fruits, freshly baked pastries, mixed fruit yogurt with assorted cereals, Indonesian breakfast, pancake/French toast/waffles and all kinds of egg breakfasts.

If you are an egg lover, you will love almost all of the breakfast as we do. The omelete, the sunny side up or the egg Benedict that served with their daily potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms, sausage and ham will never disappoint you. Their daily potatoes can be pan-fried baby potatoes, hash brown or potato fritter. We ordered the Eggs Benedict and Orange French Toast twice. Just imagine how delicious it was. 

The Indonesian breakfast that we ordered, the Mie Goreng (fried noodle) and Telur Dadar Lombok (fried rice with side dishes) tasted yummy too. It contained the special taste of Indonesian cuisine, that is the acceptable level of spiciness. 

Let's have a look on what we had taken over the 3 days.  Enjoy!
