Glutinous Rice Wine

Can imagine how busy I were for the pass 1 week, I have tons of pictures of my cooking, but no time to “decorate” them. So sad ~

So keen and wanted to share with you all about my cook books!!! Still every time I turn on the computer… Start with going up to blogger friends’ comment box, when I got those comments done nicely, that would be about time for me to rest already!

2 weeks ago, 1 of my ever good friend called me up and told me about her mom was making their own Home Made - Glutinous Rice Wine, and she reserved a bottle for me! Before I got the Wine home, again… the “CLOUDsss” came out from my mind, picturing myself in the kitchen again…cooking Chicken, Beef and etc with the Glutinous Rice Wine…
*This remind me of my mom, she always do that whenever she is free and start to chit chat with me about dishes and cooking at home.

Mom is a very sincere Buddhist, she never take Beef cos of the religion. Remember Mom’s Cook Book, and she has a lot of way to cook Pork and Chicken with the Glutinous Wine. But just not beef…

I’m bit different from mom, my family giving us 100% freedom to choose on our religion. Since very young, parents sent me to a Kindergarten under a Church in Sabah (my home town). That was the reason I became a Christian since that. I respect her as I don’t take Beef at home, but outside home… I have my 100% freedom to choose on whatever I wanted to have. Hehehee…

Learn from my Mom’s Cook Book, I’m going to try my BigFish Cook Book cooking the Beef with Glutinous Rice Wine.

Surprisingly, result was unexpected too GOOD…

~Parsley is not only for Decoration~
You will love it to cook the Beef and Chicken together with Parsley. Chinese rarely use Parsley as cooking ingredient. Most of the time, we use Parsley only for decorating and make the dishes look nicer.

I got this idea from a guy friend who loves cooking and his wife doesn’t know how to cook at all. He used Parsley to cook Fish with Star Fruit. Then he told me Parsley smell lovely after grated and cook with anything.

Looks delish! Not sure whether people sell glutinous rice wine here?

jenjen said...

glutinous rice wine is different from the normal rice wine? Mom usually use the chinese red wine that tasted abit sweet-ish for cooking chicken. But never tried with beef before. Maybe will try them soon..
