Lychee Pork Ribs

Friday, 18 June 2010

I've finally set up a Facebook Page for my blog! If you want to receive regular updates about my blog, feel free to go and Like me =) You will also find "sneak preview" pictures of recipes that will appear on my blog eventually soon and also some behind the scenes pictures - pictures that you won't see on this blog. Thanks again for all your support!

I was going to cook a pork with pineapple dish but canned lychee was all I had in my pantry. I had a huge plan for that can of lychee when I bought it but my craving for a sweet and sour pork dish won. So I gave up on that "plan" and made this delicious dish instead. To be honest, I've only had lychee in a savoury dish once, many years ago at a cafe-restaurant in KL, Malaysia. The dish was duck curry with lychee. How could anyone resist ordering a dish like that?! It was creamy, salty, sweet and flavourful. Duck curry and lychee is on my to-cook list and hopefully will be in my tummy soon and eventually appear on this blog too =) For now, a dish made with my favourite part of the pork - ribs!
