Friday Video: How to Cook Cebu Lechon

So when I post my reviews on instagram, I use hashtags. I usually try to find ones that are decent, relevant and get the most eyes on the reviews of course, and I then look at the pics others post and like them, in hopes that hey will look and like the ones I have posted or even follow. Pretty basic method of growing a viewer base. Well, I also look at the hashtags that those people use, and I saw an interesting one – #lechon. Wasn’t sure what Lechon was, so I looked at a bunch of people’s pictures and found that it was roast whole pig. I decided to take this to YouTube and have a look. After perusing quite a few, I found this video about how Cebu Lechon is made. I’ve never tried this, but I think I would love to give it a taste someday. Anyways, enjoy and Happy Black Friday!

Meet The Manufacturer: Re-Review: Lucky Me! Beef Na Beef Instant Noodles

I think a lot of people will say that Lucky Me! Beef Na Beef is one that they’ve seen many times when visiting an Asian grocery in the USA. Beef, like chicken, is one of those flavors you see about every instant noodle manufacturer out there making. Everyone knows what beef and chicken flavors taste like (well, maybe not everyone – hi vegetarians!). The weather here is quite cold and rainy lately and nice beef flavored broth sounds really good. One thing though; the Philippines isn’t a place known for it’s chilly climate. Would a beef instant translate well for colder places that’s been made there? I think I’ll have to see! Let’s revisit Lucky Me! Beef Na Beef!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge), I removed color to make print easier to read.  Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, boil 2 cups of water and add in noodle block. Cook for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents and stir. Enjoy!

Smells beefy!

The garnish sachet.

Has a pleasantly strong garlic scent.

 

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added green onion, beef, carrot, hard boiled egg and sweet onion. The noodles have a nice gauge and good texture to them – nice quantity too. The broth has a very beefy flavor – not one brought about like bouillon does but more like stewed beef. The garnish worked just right. If you like beef, you’ll really love this. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4807770190988.
