3. Line some lettuce on the lower part of the serving plate. Place one roasted drumstick on the left side. Place broccoli on top to make the tree.







4. Place the rice as shown in the picture below. Decorate with some flowers made of crabsticks and lantern made of cherry tomato.






5. Place a home baked cookie as the moon. I have baked some cookies this morning using my mooncake mould. 





That's the 4 in 1 mooncake mould that I used to make mooncake, well actually it works very well for cookies!
Mooncake mould is available for sale at DGZ SHOP

Taiwanese Braised Minced Pork With Rice 台式香菇肉燥饭 [Rice Cooker Recipe 电饭锅食谱]




This is a Taiwanese style rice dish commonly seen throughout Taiwan. The flavor may vary from one region to another but the basic ingredients remain the same, stir fried marinated ground pork and braised in flavourful gravy, served with braised egg on top of steamed rice.


Delicious meal cooked in a rice cooker.


While waiting for the kid to take shower, I made the braised eggs into little chicks.
Aren't they cute? ;)


I usually cooked this dish over the stove top, thicken the sauce with corn starch solution to make it glossy. The recipe that I'm sharing here is a simpler version cooked in a rice cooker together with steamed rice. 2 in 1 dish ready at the same time, I used this cooking method when I was away from home and need to serve lunch immediately after I fetch my hungry kid from school. When I used this method, I usually don't add corn starch solution, so it'll taste as good when I serve the leftover for dinner later. 

Served with noodles for dinner.


This is the rice cooker that I used to cook this easy 2 in 1 meal. Besides using the steam rack to cook rice, it can be used to steamed other dishes (steamed chicken, steamed ribs etc...)  while cooking rice using the rice cooker inner pot. 

If you're interested to purchase the rice cooker, you can visit Song Cho outlets or purchase from their eshop
