Ground Pork Cake with Salty Egg (Haam Daan Ju Yoke Beng)
About this Cook
Single stepmonster to a pair of teens who jump between here and Silicon Valley - the girl spends most of her time here, her brother resides primarily on the West Coast. Maintaining enthusiasm for cooking for only a few is difficult; my daughter entertains a lot to help me out with that. ;-)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that can be grilled, will be grilled - my grill runs year 'round, and only rests when the temps get below 0 F. Baking cookies, pies, and cakes are a rare treat - I love makin' them much more than eating them. Altering recipes to make unique dinners are a passion, so I focus on cooking things that can be easily altered.
My cooking triumphs
I hated fried eggs as a child, and was very surprised to find out that they were good when not vulcanized. I immediately set out to master omlettes; they remain one of my specialities to this day.
My cooking tragedies
Romantic, home cooked dinner for a new girlfriend - the baked salmon was great, the creamed fresh corn delightful, the homemade bread, solid. Boat anchor, blunt instrument, cut it with a table saw solid. She didn't like fish or corn, but loved bread.

Better Than Best Fried Chicken
The coating that stayed on the chicken had excellent texture, though as other reviewers have noted, it was a bit on the bland side. Tossing the soup-coated chicken in a bag with the flour worked remarkably poorly - much more soup stayed in the bag than stayed on the chicken. The next time I try this recipe, I'll just mix all of the coating ingredients together and use this as a batter-fried recipe. If that doesn't work well, simply dredging the soup-coated chicken in a bowl of the flour/cornstarch mixture should work better than the bag-toss technique.

Marshmallow Crispie Bars
The vanilla is a delightful touch. This recipe doubles nicely, for extra-thick bars in the same well-buttered 9x13 pan.

Crispy Pork Wontons
Quite tasty. I cook them in about 3/4" of oil in a large skillet, turning once - you don't really need that much oil to cook these.
