Shredded Carrot and Scallion Flat Bread

cong you bing recipe, scallion onion

Cong you bing or Chinese scallion pancake is a savory, non-leaven bread made by folding chopped scallions in dough, flattening it and pan grilled until golden brown.  I haven’t taste an authentic cong you bing and my first encounter with this was when watching Exploring China in Youtube.  It seems simple to do with little ingredients and with no special procedure needed.  Simply mix water with flour and knead.  Fold in the scallion and pan grilled and that’s it.

Crispy Beef Tripe Kare-kare

kare kare recipe, oxtail recipes, easy beef stew,

Kare-kare is a Filipino dish originated from the culinary capital of the Philippines, Pampanga.  It is made with fork tender meat and vegetables swimming in a vibrant orange colored peanut sauce.  It lacks the saltiness of a usual dish and always accompanied by sauteed bagoong or fermented shrimp paste.  Combine the rice, a piece of the kare-kare dish and a pinch of bagoong will keep you ask for more.  You'll have a taste of the natural flavor of the meat, the creamy peanut sauce and that pinch of bagoong binds all that flavor together in to one savory dish.

Dates and Cinnamon Bread

cinnamon bread recipe, cinnamon raisin bread

Okay!  I know I did a cinnamon roll recipe last week and you must be asking "Cinnamon Bread again?".  But hey, I can't get enough with this luscious piece of bread.  The lingering taste of brown sugar and cinnamon that explodes like an orchestra of flavor in my mouth is so addicting.  So, I decided to bake another round of cinnamon bread, but this time I added some chopped dates.  I wish I added more dates to this bread.
