HONGKONG PORK CHOP BAKED RICE
I saw baked rice from Rita's blog, then it made me wondering how's the taste of cheese, soy sauce and rice in one plate. So, I sourced the recipe, and from all the recipes, I chose this one.
I never eat hongkong pork chop baked rice before, and honestly to think of eating rice with cheese somehow made me lose my appetite. But, I can't judge the taste of food by my imagination only, right. So, this morning after my hubby left for shooting with his friends, I prepared everything needed to make baked rice.
The recipe itself is simple, only the amount of ingredients are alot! But luckily, I have almost all the ingredients :).
As usual, I mixed and matched the ingredients that I don't have. Also, I added carrots and mushrooms. Actually the changes were not too significant.
Suprisingly, this cheesy-chinese-baked-rice is turned so good! No wonder, this dish are very famous in Hongkong *you should try it then you'll know what I meant*.
And the funny thing is happened. When I snapped the photos, there was one photo that I want to show the inside of the baked rice, so I scooped one tablespoon of baked rice. Since I don't want to waste it, so i ate it, and it tasted really good!! Then, after I am done with the photos, I scooped another spoons and another and another....until I realized I ate almost half of the baked rice!! Luckily, I made enough for the rest of the day, so my hubby, for sure, has a chance to taste it ;).
So, are you wondering like me when I saw the pics' of this cheesy baked rice? Then, let's make it... :)
