It was extremely cold for the past few days and it was forecasted for snow yesterday. Yes, the snow did arrive. In fact, it started to snow yesterday evening and throughout the night. A flurry of snow was falling down from the sky as I was looking through the window. I had a sense of excitement for a while. I was at home – it has always been very well insulated that we didn’t even have to switch on the heating, feeling rather comfortable most of the time.
Snowy weather like what we have just experienced makes me crave for comfort food. I love to cook one pot & one pan food. Not because it is easy to prepare, but it is tasty and great flavour is always guaranteed. The best is always to cook a big pot and have more than enough to feed for a few days. The taste always gets better the next day!
Just a few days ago, a reader of my blog asked me to share some simple pork recipes. I then knew I wanted to make a slow-cooked dish using pork. Using fragrant herbs like bay, thyme and tarragon make this slow-cooked pork dish really irresistible. I personally love to use pork shoulder, not only because it is inexpensive, it gives almost melt-in-the mouth texture when slowly braised. The meat fall apart after about 1 – 1.5 hours of slow cooking in the liquid along with other ingredients, which give this slow-cooked dish a great explosion of flavours!
