Caramelized red braised pork - Nqaij Qab Zib

This sweet red braised pork I believe is originally a Chinese dish that made its way into southeast asian cooking. It is a very delicious dish that even some people cannot understand why it is not served at Chinese restaurants. There are many variations of cooking red cooked pork. The recipe I provide below is how the Hmong people have adapted this dish into making their own as they use a few different ingredients. You can expect to see this dish served at Hmong rituals and gatherings.

Preparation: Overnight Marinate. Cooking: 2 hours Slow cooking

Paprika Pork and Shrimp Kabobs

 

This summer I found myself on the grill a lot. When the heat is unbearable i would rush into grilling food. At one point, i quickly rubbed different seasonings to marinate the shrimp and meat and I actually ended up creating some pretty tasty kabobs. I guess you could say it was on accident :) I am sure you will like these seasoned kabobs just as much as my family did during the bbq.
Preparation: 10 minutes. Marinate: 1 hour. Cooking: 10 minutes

Lao Crispy Fried Rice (Nam Kao) is crunchy, sweet, salty and sour. Traditionally, you wrap this fried rice in lettuce, vietnamese coriander, cilantro and mint transforming it to a salad dish, but I prefer just eating the fried rice by itself. I actually learned how to make this from my sister who learned it from her mother in law who is Lao. Hmong people would enjoy this dish because of the sour pork sausage. Try it because you won’t regret making this dish
