Happy Call Double Sided Pan Pork Rib Claypot Rice


After my very first Happy Call Double Sided Pan experience cooking the Coca Cola Chicken Wings, I am sort of addicted to cooking cause cooking seem so easy overnight. After browsing several blog sites and recipes, I decide to try Cuisine Paradise's Claypot Rice recipe.


I did not have all the necessary ingredients as in Cuisine Paradise's recipe hence I make do with what I could find in the fridge. Instead of chicken, I used pork ribs. For vegetables, I used snow peas and Yifon assorted bottled mushrooms.


I have to admit I made several mistakes in the process such as putting in the vegetables too early. As you can see from the picture below, the snow peas have been cooked too long and turned yellow. Nevertheless, the rice turned out quite nice and has similar texture as claypot cooking method. It has the moist but yet burnt crispy texture at the bottom.
