簡單冬蔭豬頸肉湯米粉 (Simple Tom Yum Soup Rice Noodle with pork jowl / Tom Yum Kut Teh)

 

這個應該是作者在香港生活的最後一個食譜吧。 待作者在大馬生活穩定後,一定再為大家分享多些不同的食譜。

I think this is the last recipe I am sharing while living in Hong Kong.  I will share more special recipes later when I’m settled down in Malaysia.

 

作者一向認識的冬蔭湯也是用蝦及草菇煮成,所以我但在香港大多說冬蔭功,當中的「功」在泰文是 goong, 是蝦的意思, 一般只會說冬蔭。 但在泰國卻是很多配搭,可以是豬肉、雞肉或牛肉,亦有很多其他冬蔭做法,而主要材料也是香茅、南薑、檸檬葉、魚露、辣椒、青檸汁。至於冬蔭醬,其實當地人比較少用,他們主要用新鮮香料再加入一種辣椒醬,所以看上去是清湯的; 但在世界其他地方,冬蔭湯主要味道來源是冬蔭醬,因為味道比較濃及方便。

As I know like most of the people, Tom Yum only added shrimp and mushroom, we called tom yum goong, but the word “goong” means shrimp, so we should call tom yum only.  Actually, you can find Tom Yam with meats as well in Thailand household and variety kind of tom yum too.  The main ingredients for Tom Yum are lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, Chilli, fish sauce and lime juice, therefore, they are mostly clear broth instead red one.  Tom Yum paste only widely use outside Thailand, because it enhance flavour and more convenient.

 

作者所住的小島上,很多泰國人聚居,不時也有泰國人在島上開小餐館,因此認識了比較家庭式的冬蔭食法,不太似我們在城市裏的餐廳味道,但感覺很地道,配搭肉類也是不錯的。

In the island that I’m living, there are many Thai people living here too, sometimes they will open a small restaurant to serve localized Thai cuisine, some dishes are not famous in popular Thai restaurant, it’s not home cook style one, so I learn this from them too.

 

最近作者所住的小島又有泰國人開了新食品店,店主是泰國人,親自回泰國入貨的,所以介紹了一款冬蔭醬,她指餐廳也是用這個品牌; 當作者試過後,真的很不同,以前從超市買回來的冬蔭醬,只有鹹味,用一包也沒有冬蔭那種酸辣的味道,然而用了這個品牌,只需要2湯匙已經足夠一鍋2-3人份量的冬蔭湯底味道了。

Recently, there’s a Thai grocery store opened in the island, it’s also operated by Thai people and import goods themselves directly from Thailand.  She introduced a brand of Tom Yam paste for me which also widely used in Thai restaurants too.  After I tried, it’s really unbelievable taste too, compared with previously bought from supermarket, it’s only taste salty but without hot, spicy and sour character that Tom Yam should be, but this only use 2 tablespoons which enough flavour to serve 2-3 pax of soup.

 

這次真的簡單版,作者也只是買來超市預醃的泰式豬頸肉吧了,但用了低溫慢煮方法,肉質比較鬆軟。

This is very very simple recipe that I also bought a pre seasoned meat from supermarket, but using sous vide method that meats are tender and juicy.
