  • 8 eggs
  • 5 cups pork belly, sliced
  • 1-1/4 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1-1/4 tbsp garlic, chopped
  • 5 pieces of star anise
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed tight

  • 1-1/4 tbsp oil
  • water, lots of it

Directions

The pork belly should be marinated with oyster sauce and soy sauce. Set aside.

Boil the eggs. Then, remove the eggshell after it is completed.

In a large pan put in oil. Add the ginger and garlic. Stir until brown. Mix the Brown sugar.

Once the sugar has melted and the pork belly is cooked, you can add the marinade, including juices and the rest of the ingredients.

Stir it for several minutes until the pork turns somewhat white. Add 4-1/2 cups of water or even more to make sure the pork gets completely coated.

Cook for an hour or longer. To cook the pork more tender continue adding water and simmer for 2 hours or more. It is possible to add star anise at any point during the cooking.

Always remember, you can alter the flavor by adding more water or increasing or reducing the amount of either soy sauce or sugar!

Keyword: Hmong Beef Recipe

Ingredients

Tomato Herb Version

  • 1-1/4 Tbsp tender curing salt
  • 5 lb beef chuck (slice into 5-6 strips)
  • 3 cups cherry tomato
  • 1-1/4 tsp mushroom seasoning
  • 1-1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 5 Thai chili
  • 1-1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1-1/4 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1-1/4 tsp salt

Ginger And Lemongrass Version

  • 1-1/4 Tbsp tender curing salt
  • 5 lbs beef chuck (slice into 5-6 strips)
  • 2/3 cup minced ginger
  • 1-1/4 tsp mushroom seasoning
  • 1-1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2/3 cup minced lemongrass
  • 5 chopped Thai chili
  • 1-1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 11/4 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1-1/4 tsp salt

Directions

Smoking The Beef

The chuck of beef is cut into 5 to 7 pieces. Mix in the salt for curing and the mushroom seasoning to mix well. Let it marinate for 24 hours prior to smoking it.

Prepare your grill using standard charcoal as well as wood. Put the beef in a hook and set it on top of the grill to rest. The charcoal will permit the steak to cook slowly and absorb the smokey flavor. Then let it sit and smoke for about 1 hour if the heat remains steady.

If there aren’t any hooks and aren’t able to hang them above the grill, you can choose to cook the meat in the rack on the grill for 5 minutes per side or until the beef develops an excellent smoky taste. After that, take it off the grill and let it cool. This is quicker but does not dry out the meat more. However, it does have an excellent charcoal-like flavor.

After about an hour, remove the beef from the grill. We will move it into the oven where it will continue to cook the meat in an atmosphere of controlled temperature.

The beef is cooked in the oven

Continue to cook the beef in the oven at 400°C for another 20 minutes. Then, flipping them over, the next 15 minutes are to cook the opposite side. Allow it to cool after removing it from the oven. After cooling, cut it into smaller pieces that can be chopped and blended further.

Blend the beef pieces at one time until it is shredded into pieces. Shred and blend the beef, then pour it into the bowl. Set aside.

How To Make The Tomato Pepper

In a baking dish lined with foil, cook the peppers and tomatoes to you can broil them at 450°C for 25 to 30 minutes or until they are nicely cooked. After the tomatoes have been roasted, place the peppers into a mortar and pestle with 1-1/4 teaspoon of salt. The peppers should be crushed until they are broken up. Then add the tomatoes from the roast and smash them well. Add in the green onions and cilantro as well as your fish sauce. Mix well before adding in the beef shreds. Mix thoroughly and test the taste. Place in a bowl, and serve with white or sticky rice. Enjoy!

Ginger And Lemongrass Version

Blend the beef and place it in the bowl. Add garlic, ginger minced, green onions, peppers, and cilantro. Add seafood sauce and salt. Mix well, then test the taste and adjust. Serve with sticky rice.

Notes

Feel free to add any other herbs to this recipe. If you smoke lots of beef then you can store the meat and use them to cook this dish at any time. Smoked beef is also excellent in soups.

Keyword: Hmong Pork Sausage Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds ground pork
  • 4 pounds pork belly grounded up
  • 3/4 cup red onion minced
  • 1/4 cup Thai chilis minced
  • 3/4 cup ginger minced
  • 3/4 cup green onion minced
  • 1/4 cup lime leaf minced
  • 3/4 cup lemongrass finely minced
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce in peanut oil
  • 3/4 tbsp Morton Tender Quick
  • 1/3 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 3/4 tbsp salt
  • 3/4 tbsp MSG (optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fish sauce (three crabs brand)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Hog casings

Directions

Take off the casings of the hog and place them in cold water for 30 mins.

Rinse the hog casings with cool water until they are completely free of salt. It’s possible that you’ll have to repeat the process several times. Set it aside..

Mix the chili sauce, water as well as Thai chilies in one small bowl.

Within a bowl combine all the ingredients and then pour the sauce from step 2 of the mix.

Stuff the sausage into the casings for hogs. The sausage can be stuffed in a variety of ways.

Tips

Purchase a quality sausage stuffer if planning to make lots of sausages. Manually making them will take too long.

I purchased a Kitchenaid sausage stuffer for just $20, however, it took far too long, and my arms hurt when in the process of putting the sausage in the stuffer.

I tried it by hand using an empty milk jug and an empty bottle of 2 liters. Too long.

Don’t overstuff the sausage. Leave it loose to allow the meat to expand and cook. If the sausage is exploding, it means it was packed too tight.

If your sausage turns out in a salty state, it generally indicates that you left a significant amount of salt inside the casings of your hog and didn’t wash all the salt.

Morton Soft Quick salt. You can purchase this in most supermarkets.

MSG is not required. It’s a flavor enhancer in meat If you don’t like it, don’t add it.

Do not skimp with the chili paste you use in peanut oil. This provides the sausage with a nice flavor and color.

Keyword: Hmong Pork Sausage Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs pork neck bones
  • 2 lbs pork rib meat [bone on] cut into smaller pieces
  • 9 cups water
  • 3 tsp of salt to marinate the pork bones
  • 4-inch fresh ginger (sliced)
  • 1 small cabbage head (rough chopped)
  • 1-1/4 tsp mushroom seasoning (Po Lo Ku brand)
  • 1-1/4 tsp salt for the soup

Pepper Dip

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 10 Thai chili pepper (frozen)
  • 1/4 tsp salt (add less if you desire)
  • 2-1/2 tbsp fish sauce (3 crab brand)
  • 2/3 lime (juiced) about 1 tbsp (add more or less depending on you)
  • Cilantro and green onion (add as much as you please)
  • 1/3 tsp mushroom seasoning (optional)

Directions

Pork bones should be well rinsed and drained. Add 3 tsp salt. Stir well and then cover. Allow for 2 hours of relaxation time, or even overnight. I prefer to marinate for a few hours before letting it sit overnight.

Transfer the pork bones to an oven filled with water, 9 cups. It should simmer for a minimum of 25 to 30 minutes. Remove any grease or scum that simmers to make a clearer broth. After 25 minutes, move the bones to a fresh pot and place the strainer placed over it.

Pour the broth through the strainer, allowing it to remove any leftovers. Bring to a low boil, then add the ginger slices. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the cabbage that you chopped. The cabbage should cook until it is barely wilted. Do not overcook or they’ll become soft. After you’ve tasted it and adjusted the seasoning, you’re ready to serve.

Pepper Dip:

In the mortar and pestle, add the garlic cloves, chili peppers along with salt, mushrooms seasoning, and pound them until they’re all chopped into a smooth. Transfer the crushed chili/garlic to an empty bowl. Add citrus juice, fish sauce, and chopped green onion or cilantro. Check the taste and adjust.

Serving the soup along with freshly cooked rice and pepper dip. Enjoy!

Notes

Ginger is used to cutting down the smell of pork. You may also include lemongrass or other herbs should you want. Make use of other pork bones that you like. I prefer pork ribs and neck bones from pork.

Preparation Time: 20 Minutes Cook Time: 00 Minutes Total Time: 20 Minutes
Type: Side Dish Cuisine: Hmong Yield: 3 Serving
Keyword: Hmong Cucumber Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoon palm sugar white or brown are ok substitutes
  • 5 dried chilis re-hydrate in lukewarm water for 5 mins
  • 1-1/2 cucumber
  • 1-1/2 lime (halved) cut one half into thirds and keep the other half whole
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Nam Pla Ra fermented fish sauce: an essential Thai Isaan-style salad ingredient
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 3 cherry tomatoes (quartered) any small tomato is fine
  • 2 small handfuls of unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 2 garlic clove
  • Thai salad with cucumber

Directions

Place the sugar, the rehydrated dried chilis, and garlic in the wooden Thai mortar, and then smash until the oils release. This should take around 10 seconds.

Incorporate lime wedges, and smash in order to let the juice out for three to five seconds.

Peel the cucumber’s skin and cut into matchsticks that measure 3-4 cm long. The thickness can differ, so there’s nothing to worry about being exact. Put the cucumber in the mortar, then grab an enormous spoon to make what’s to come next.

Add the fish sauce, the fermented fish sauce, and juice from the lime’s remaining half, then add the peanuts, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Combine the ingredients by gently pounding cucumber against the sides of the mortar using one hand and then tossing the dressing over the salad using a spoon using the other hand.

Take the salad out of the mortar on a platter, and enjoy it with some grilled meat. To get your carbs in, I suggest eating some Thai vermicelli rice noodles, or sticky rice. Plain rice can also be delicious.
