Ahhhh,... so you've taken up my Sunday Cookfest tradition. Cool, huh?


This sounds delicious!
Could I substitute the Chinese rice wine with Japanese sake?


Oh, this is something Matt would adore. Me, I just love the smell of 5 spice powder.

Btw; we have your German peasant soup in our recipe queue...with the current cold freeze, I'm sure I'll be making it soon!


Dede - I don't see why you couldn't use sake - so long as it's not too sweet.


Mmmm... I bet Chinese black mushrooms/shiitake would work really well in that dish.


That lamb looks so tender! Mmmmm


I'm just writing a post about five-spice powder, and will link to this wonderful recipe. I love the pairing of five-spice with lamb.


Congratulations! I bet your baby will have all sorts of delicious things made for it - I remember trying out pumpkin with tahini on my then one-year-old, with reasonable success.


Congrats on the baby. I just listened to your review on CBC. It was nice to hear your voice. My mouth is watering now for pita and hummus.


I'm 4 months pregnant and have been resorting to the same food tactics, as the alternative is take-aways or bread and cheese...

But I'm impressed that it only takes you 1 hour on Sundays. My Sunday afternoons seem to be spent in the kitchen, planning for the week ahead. I'll have to rethink them...


Cooked this yesterday in the oven, Absolutely delicious. Many thanks!

Will this works if I change the ingredient to pork instead? cause I rally take lamb


I thought you might be interested in trying out Edmonton's newest Vietnamese place. It's called Rice Paper Restaurant on 10080 178 Street NW! I tried it out on opening day and I was really surprised to find that there weren't any kinks in the system on the first day. They definitely know what they are doing!

The link is the only think I could find on it so far...
