Bak Kuet Teh!

My lunch today, while the kids and hubby dear were at school ... A bowl of steaming hot rice, with Broccoli, sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds, and a bowl of warm Bak Kuet Teh!

It's funny how we take things for granted.
When we were back home, there were many stalls at the hawker centres selling Bak Kuet Teh. You eat rice and drink the soup, and eat the meat that goes into boiling the soup. Sometimes, they even serve the meal with a small pot of tea! We had never ordered this soup while we eat out. But when you far away from home, you yearn for food back home, even if it means food you normally don't eat while back home.

I cooked the Bak Kuet Teh using a ready-to-use spice mix which I brought along with us when we went into the woods. It was very easy to cook. Since I already had the spareribs cleaned and fats removed, all I needed to do was to boil the water, put in the spareribs and spice bag, and let the stove do the rest of the work! The garlic cloves were added towards the end ... half an hour later, and it took another 15 minutes before I get to have a bowl of steaming hot Bak Kuet Teh! Heavenly!
