Happy Mother's Day, everyone.
Today, I made Taiwanese Beef Noodle again to celebrate this special day. In my previous blog, many readers had thought I was making dry beef noodle since there was no soup in the pictures. The fact is I didn't have enough soup, so, I only put a little soup in the bowl and the close-up pictures didn't help either. Anyway, I was sure to make enough soup today. Last but not least, I used beef shanks today and I simmered them for 2 hours. A quote from someone who had the noodle: "I'm not going to lie, the beef noodle is frigging good!"

I always wanted to try to make Taiwanese beef noodle, a popular dish in Taiwan. The beef is very tender and the soup is very flavorful. So, I tried today, except I was running short on garlic. Fear not, I used red scallions and celery instead. Basically, whatever leftover in the fridge, LOL.
Of course, instead of Chinese noodle or pulling the noodle myself, I was using the Italian pasta which was chewy and perfectly served as beef noodle. The end results were not disappointed. Yum!

I usually sauteed cabbage with Eggs. It's a very easy and nutritious dish I'd like to make for lunch. But, this time, instead of the regular, I made a variation: I first sauteed the cabbage, then made a tornado omelette on top of the cabbage.
There is no recipe nor video; it's my own creation in the hope to make cooking fun. Enjoy!

I bought a farm-raised salmon from Costco, followed the youtube video listed below to cure the salmon. Left them in the fridge for a week, took them out yesterday and made the Nigiri Sushi today. I think the salmon tasted better after being cured. YMMV.

I was at Costco the other day and saw Beyond meat in the fridge. So, I purchased one pack just for trying. I didn't have an opportunity until today.
Combined with the leftover sourdough bread I had in the fridge, I pan-fried the beyond meat, topped with an fried egg and cheese under it. It was very good. I sent my friend the picture; he said he could smell it. Lol.

I made guacamole from scratch. The ingredient includes avocados, tomatoes, sliced onion, salt, lime, olive oil and black pepper. Basically, the ratio of avocados to tomatoes is 1:1. The amount for rest of the ingredients are whatever to your liking.
