I don’t know the term “char kway teow” is  related with the charred and smokey stir fried  rice flat noodle or not, but delicious char kway teow is used to be charred and smokey , so it’s necessary to stir fried the ingredients in a smoking and sizzling hot oil in wokpan.  The chinese restaurant chef used to  had it’s own method to stir fried char kway teow and trnasfer from generation to bgeneration with specific family flavour preverence. The thinly sliced wagyu beef need to be stir fried quickly and cooked separatedly because the fat it’s easy to rendered and the texture is naturally tender so no need to add water to little “stew” to tenderized the meat like you do on regular beef.

Generous Ammount of Charred Wagyu Beef on Char Kway Teow with XO Sauce

Making delicious beef char kway teow  is easy, if you want to made the char kway teow into perfection you need to follow several steps:

1. Stir Fried The Wagyu Beef Slices

First the wagyu beef, marinade the thinly sliced wagyu beef with dark soy sauce, sesame oil and freshly ground black pepper for 30 minutes in the fridge. The thinly sliced wagyu beef need to be stir fried quickly and cooked separatedly with other ingredients because the fat it’s easy to rendered. Wagyu beef is naturally tender so no need to add water even to a little bit to “stew” the beef to tenderized the meat like you do on regular beef. Never cooked the wagyu beef within the noodle unless your pricey wagyu beef will be overcooked and all your money is wasted once the wagyu beef delicious marbled fat dissolved and the texture is dried.  The stir fried beef then set aside and then added into the char kway teow just before it’s done.

2. Stir Fried The Kway Teow or Flat Rice Noodle with Duck Eggs

Freshly made flat rice noodle (sometimes also called rice cake strips) is preferred then dried ones because it’s texture and natural rice grain flavour and also more easy to charred without any unpleasant bitter taste. You can get the fresh flat rice noodle in the chiller rack on chinese groceries store. The flat rice noodle then washed with warm water to remove any excess flour on it, then marinated with soy sauce and beaten duck egg, and YES,  duck egg mixed with the fresh rice flat noodle before cooking it. The Mixture poured  on smoking hot oil in wok pan with very high heat and  quicky stirred to separate the rice noodle and make sure each noodle covered with charred egg. This method made the kway teow itself smokey and damn delicious!!!

3. Making the  XO Sauce Beef Char Kway Teow

Using a clean wok pan,  any of your the char kway teow seasoning is sauteed with oil (finely chopped garlic and red shallots).  All other ingredients then added the chicken, pork, shrimp, cockle, fish cake, shrimp or prawn, crab, Homemade Chinese Sausage/Lap Cheung etc. Add the sauces to enhanced the flavour (xo sauce, kecap manis or Indonesian sweet soy sauce, soy sauce and Homemade Sambal Belachan or Fermented Shrimp Paste Chili Sambal).  Some water added and the lid covered the wok pan  to cooked the meat throughly. The previously charred stir fried rice flat noodle with duck eggs added and stirred to made the seasoning distributes evenly. The fresh vegetables like cabbage and beansprout and stir fried wagyu beef then added just before the char kway teow done.

XO Sauce (Lee Kum Kee Brand)

XO sauce is a savoury bomb that burst into umami flavour once you put it in your mouth, that’s the correct definition for my taste buds. Chinese XO sauce made of  several premium dried seafoods, including dried scallops or conpoy, dried fish and shrimp, sometimes crab and shrimp roe, Chinese ham/Jinhua ham, and abalone that rehydrated, shredded and then fried and mixed into XO Sauce. The roughly chopped rehydrated dried seafood then cooked slowly with chili peppers, onions, and garlic then  cognag or other old liquor added, this is what XO (extra old) Sauce name comes from. I’m using Lee Kum Kee Brand XO Sauce for this recipe, it’s savoury enought even without any Iham at all (it’s also Halal). Lee Kum Kee penetrated Indonesia with their halal version sauces and condiments because the Indonesian majority population is moslem. I love using XO Sauce as a condiment or as a flavouring agent, i recently made my own and  hopefully i can share it a.s.a.p.

Steamed live grouper fish with XO Sauce is simply what you’ve served if you want to impressed your future mother in law if you want to married your Chinese descent boyfriend. Simple steaming fish technique is highly appreciated in mostly Asian, especially Chinese descent, but not for Bataknese people like my family tree. Batak people used to spiced up any dish, so light seasoning that present the natural sweetness flavour of the fish such as Hongkong Style Steamed Live Humpback Mouse Grouper that probably cost you a lot of money won’t impress any batak mother in law.  Batak people apreciate the freshness of seafood, we used to pickled fish called Naniura or Spicy Pickled Raw Grass Carp Fish, and again it’s spiced up with with lots of spicy chili and andaliman pepper. My bataknese descent mother used to steamed fish lately due to health issue concern, mostly spicy Thai Style Steamed Whole Fish  Recipe that suits with my family licking that adore spicy food.

XO sauce fish in this recipe using Blue Dotted Grouper (Cephalopholis argus), it’s also known as red rock cod, seven star grouper or coral trout.

This fish is highly regarded as a fancy dinner menu and usually cooked once it alive prior to served in the table, the price is dropped once it dead and this is why live grouper fish usually displayed in the aquarium window infront of the high end Chinese restaurant. My grouper was tagged about 42 USD/kg once it alive in Grand Lucky Supermarket, Jakarta, called me a lucky bastard; i got this lil grouper with only 7 USD/Kg tag because the fish section staff told me that this fish is just dead or  about 3 hours before i got there, just a great deal very-very fresh grouper fish for steaming.

XO Sauce Steamed Fish; Low Calories, High Protein and DAMN DELICIOUS!!!

Steamed fish diet it’s a part of a healthy living. Steaming food preserved it’s natural taste and most of it’s nutrients  withoud adding enormous ammount of unnecessary calories. Don’t you know that deep frying fish can triple it’s calories??? Don’t be shock that deep fried fish infact left only half amount of it’s proteins and vitamins due to high heating that can reach about 180C compare to 100 C of steaming process. Beside, the natural unsaturated fatty acid mostly retain in steaming process. Unsaturated Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid  considered as a GOOD FAT that cleanse clotted cholestrol or BAD FAT in your capilary.

Delicious Steamed Fish with XO Sauce, Can’t Stop Diggin!!!

Delicious steamed whole fish requires freshness as the key to avoid any fishy and muddy aromas. First, you should choose the freshly catch fish or live fish that swimming in the tank is preferred. Rub and also brush throughly the fish upper cavity ribs area, below the fish back bone, there’s a blackish dark red organ which is actually the fish kidney that should be fully removed or your steamed fish gonna be muddy and fishy. Some people like to steamed the fish twice; first, the fish was steamed until half done, and then the dripping liquid is discarded, after that  the rest of the ingredients added and the fish is steamed until done. I’ve never discard the liquid once i handle a live fish or a very-very fresh ones (except freshwater fish) because discarding the dripping liquid means discarded the nutritional juices from the fish, and i think it’s such  a waste, that’s why i simply place the chopped fresh chillies, garlic, Homemade Chinese Sausage/La Chang and XO Sauce over the fish and steam it directly until done

Resep Manuk Napinadar -Ayam Margota

Resep Manuk Napinadar Ayam Margota Khas Batak. Manuk Napinadar is Indonesian Batak descent cuisine that made of grilled whole chicken and served with hot and spicy blood with andaliman pepper sauce. Manuk napinadar drived from the Batak Toba word manuk means chicken and napinadar which means cooked with blood.  Manuk Napinadar or ayam pinadar made from young or junvenile ayam kampung or malay chicken (native breed of free ranged chicken) than leaner and sweeter than regular chicken. The chicken blood for the sauce colected while the chicken slaughtered by incision through the carotic artery and jugularis vein in the neck. The blood dripping colected over  a mixture of jeruk purut or kaffir lime juice and salt mixture  to prevent the blood clotting.

Grilled Chicken with Spicy Blood Sauce

Blood is a part of Indonesian cuisines, it’s popular ingredients in non-moslem Indonesian descent like Bataknese, Balinese, Torajanese and Minahasan cuisines. Blood is also well known as a blood tonic in Chinese-Indonesian or peranankan cuisine. Majority of Indonesian is moslem and blood is considered as haram or forbidden in Islam,  so then blood based Indonesian dishes isn’t that popular and i guess it’s my responsibility to share the blood based Indonesian dishes through out the world. So, alternatively for halal version of manuk pinadar, just simply omit the blood or added some chicken liver puree to give the richness and the dark appearence of napinadar sauce.

Manuk Napinadar-Namrgota-Naniatur

Manuk napinadar got several name, it’s also known as ayam napinadar, ayam namargota or simply ayam pinadar. It’s similiar with saksang or manok dinuguan from Philippine for it’s spiciness and hotness, but chicken napinadar is superior for my licking for it’s andaliman pepper.  Andaliman pepper (Zanthoxylum acanthopodium native citrusy herbs similiar with Japanese sansho pepper or Chinese szechuan peppercorn that give a refreshing numbning and tangy citrusy flavour. Andaliman pepper or lada batak is an essential ingredients for kicking Bataknese cuisine ; Dengke Naniura  (Raw Spicy Pickled Grass Carp Fish), Arsik Ikan Mas Khas batak (Spicy Fish Stew) and Saksang Ayam (Spicy Chicken with Blood Stew.Ayam panggang napinadar or grilled chicken with pinadar sauce is so easy to made, First you should prefer the young and junvenile chicken with a small spurs. Male ayam kampong or malay chicken got firmer texture and sweet taste while the female got more succulent texture for it’s fattier meat and more sweet flesh compare to the male. I personaly love the female more to the male chicken for dorect grilling or barbequing  because the male tend to be dry and overcoooked. Ayam pinadar usually made from male ayam kampung for special occation or ceremonial, but the female ones likely found in domestic kitchen consumption.

Ayam Panggang Napinadar (Grilled Chicken with Andaliman Pepper)

Ayam Panggang Bumbu Napinadar (Succulent and Tender Grilled Chicken with Spicy Blood-Andaliman Pepper Sauce)

Ayam bakar namargota-pinadar or grilled chicken buterflied and flatened, if you like you spatchcock it to made it evenly cooked ove the griller. The chicken was priorly marinated with salt and pepper and a little dash of kaffir lime juice overnight in the fridge. Eversince the chicken is young, so i guess the collagen is breakdown easily by the acid marinade. My grandmother used to grilled the ayam bakar over  dry coconut husk charcoal for slow and constant heat. Agressive heat made the grilled chicken surface burned out while the inside still undercooked, so steady and low heat it’s preferred. If you using oven, i prefer to roast the chicken in low temperature about 150 C for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the chicken is tender and the internal temperature is about 75 C, so you need to stop the cooking if the thickest part of the chicken reach about 60-65 because it’s gonna reach anout 75-80 after taken out from the heat and resting. Temperature gauge is really help, but conventionally you can slice through the thickest part of the chicken, it’s cooked when the meat is white and the dripping juice is clear.

I love octopus for it’s texture and flavour. Braised Octopus with Spicy Chily Sauce is previously featured on Dentist Chef blog. But actually you can use octopus mamy-many ways; grilled, soup, salad, stew, you name it. The same technique it applied before you enjoy octopus; slow cooking. before the  squid is thinly sliced in salad, it’s used to be boiled about 45 minutes in seasoned water to tenderize the meat first. Simply insert some fork to know then tenderness of the octopus meat, i like it tender but with a little resistence when i chew it.

Tauco is made by fermenting the boiled soybean with salted water in a large clay container that is sun-dried for several weeks to further the fermentation process until the color turned to yellow-reddish. Tauco got a savoury flavour and aromas, very good for stir frying seafood or vegetables, If you can fund any tauco, you can use miso or japanese soybean paste to replace it.

The rehydrated octopus is usually deep fried or pan fried until slighly charred before added to stew or braised dish, but this is unnecessary steps if tyou want to make soup using dried octopus. The deep fried octopus is actually ready to eat, but it’s still slighly chewy and tough, so it need to be prolonged cooked slowly to tenderize the meat.

Peanut Crusted Whole Beef Tenderloin, Stuffed with Spinach, Mozarella Cheese, Chorizo and Gorgonzola Butter , Served with Roasted Jalapeno Pepper Sauce

Peanut crusted beef tenderloin stuffed with spinach, chorizo, mozarella cheese and spicy gorgonzola blue cheese butter. This recipe is inspired by a from my friend Liz Berg of  Thatskinnychickcanbake.com recipe, Gorgonzola Mushrooms Stuffed Beef Tenderloin Recipe.

Try this spinach, cheese and chorizo stuffed roasted whole beef tenderloin with crusted peanut layer to impressed your relatives in a special occations gathering party or even on  romantic candle light dinner with your girlfriend, just make sure that she isn’t some sort of tree-hugging vegan chicks.

Crispy and Crunchy Peanut Crusted Roasted Beef Tenderloin

Peanut crusted tenderloin is the first seducing layer on this dish. The peanut is lighly toasted and roughly chopped,  covering all over the whole beef tenderloin. The peanut crusted spinach stuffed beef tenerloin then popped in into the oven and roasted until got a crusted and nice golden brown color. You may combine or adjust the peanut with your favourite nuts for this recipe, instead peanut, you can use walnut, almond, cashew, Macadamian or Brazilian nuts, or any available nuts nearby your place. Just like my Pistachio Nuts Crusted Lamb Rack with Feta Cheese and Spinach Stuffing Recipe, the crusted nuts layer need some bonding agent to made it stick better to covering the beef tenderloin surface. I’m using a mixture of honey mustard and egg yolk as a glue for the peanut crust layer.

Fully Loaded Butterflied Beef Tenderloin with Spinach, Mozarella Cheese, Chorizo and Gorgonzola Butter

Now were talking about the stuffing for the whole beef tenderloin, just look at the photograph and you can tell me all the goodness loaded on the butterflied tenderloin. The stuffing for the whole tenderloin is sauteed spinach with garlic and basil, sliced genuin Spanish chorizo, thick sliced mozarella cheese and sliced gorgonzola blue cheese butter. I spread the ttuffing evenly, but not covering about 1 inch from the edge of the flatened beef tenderloin. I did this to k kept the stuffing inside the denderloin and not burst out when you roast in in the over. DO NOT OVERFILLED the beef tenderloin, too much filling might made the stuffed tenderloin explode out from the tenderloin, eventhough it won’t ruined the taste but it’s won’t be plateable.

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Beef Tenderloin, Totally Seducing!

You can adjust the stuffing for the tenderloin as your licking preference, other delicious veggies stuffing for beef tenderloin could be caramelized onion or cabbage, sauteed kale or swiss chard etc.  Plenty of cheese selection instead of mozarella may loaded in to stuffed the beef tenderloin, soft cheese is preferred becauce it’s easier to melt; goat cheese, feta cheese, camembert, brie etc. Another  savoury kick beside chorizo is bacon, anchovies or other dry cured meat or sausage. A few slice of butter added to kept the beef tenderloin stuffing moist and flavoursome.

 Stuffed Whole Beef Tenderloin with Spinach, Mozarella Cheese, Chorizo and Gorgonzola Butter , Served with Roasted Jalapeno Pepper Sauce

Tenderloin is tenderloin and it’s literrary because tenderloin not much taking effort for the cow’s movement. Beef tenderloin cut is lean and least affected by the fat marbling grading, you should check the cross section of grade 3 marbling point tenderloin to grrade 12 marbling point wagyu tenderloin, you’ll find not much different on the ammunt of of white fat distributes between the muscles on it.  This makes the cheap tenderloin is just as tender as the insanely pricey wagyu tenderloin. The difference between the  pricey beef tenderloin such as US Black Angus, Wagyu, Kobe etc from the cheap ones is on the flavour, the pricey beef might be take from a cattle that feed with best selection of whole grain, corn, nuts, fresh grass and stuffs, this made the the meat is got more complex flavour. For any stuffed beef tenderloin recipe, i suggest you choose the regular tenderloin. Regular beef tenderloin is preferred since we add another flavour into it, while the pricey gourmet tenderloin is already flavoursome, lighly seasoned and seared in a sizzling hot skillet is just perfect to prepare it.

Medium Done Roasted Spinach Stuffed Beef Tenderloin with Peanut Crusted

I like my oven roasted whole beef tenderloin with spinach, cheese and chorizo stuffing served medium done. Medium done whole beef tenderloin means the internal temperature when you put the meat temperature gauge in the middle of the thickest part must reach at least 145-155F or about 63-68°C. This temperature enought to melt the blue cheese butter stuffing and also soften the mozarella cheese and the internal meat slighly pink and lighly firm. Your roasted tenderloin would be a fest with the crunchy peanut crust, gooey melted mozarella cheese with a burst of melted spicy gorgonzola cheese butter flavour and it’s all rolled in a tender and juicy beef tenderloin. Just look into the photograph of sagital section of my spinach and cheese stuffed beef tenderloin above, it’s all perfect if you ignored my lack of knive skills.

So please, to ya’ll mommy to be, stop bitching about pleasing your taste buds, i’m pretty sure you didn’t want to risk your baby with parasites or food poisoning from unsufficient cooked meat either. I even cooked my Balinese Style Grilled Baby Back Ribs Recipe until well done for her.  So then to served this tenderloin well done for my sister, i put the leftover toasted peanut in the bottom of the pan, then put the sliced spinach stuffed tenderloin on top of it and put extra mozarella cheese to cover it, popped it into the oven and broiled until the cheese melted and slighly charred. I eat a tiny bite of the well done tenderloin and it’s incredibly quite moist and tender, i guess the stuffing really paid an effort on it.
