Kam Yan Jen cured pork - Can someone translate Chinese for me?

racer x Jan 9, 2012 06:54 PM

I have some Kam Yan Jen cured pork. Trying to learn good ways to cook it. Braise? Stir-fry? Steam? Combination?

The following recipe is available on the company's website. The google translation doesn't make sense -- can someone translate this please?

Stir=fried sweet peas with cured pork

金然棧臘肉 半條 (蒸熟、切片)
荷蘭豆 4 安士 (摘去頭部、洗淨)
鮮冬菇 4 朵 (一開二)


放 1 湯匙油爆炒臘肉片及荷蘭豆及鮮冬菇。
贊酒 1 湯匙,鹽 1/2 茶匙。

      I tried the recipe tonight.
      I used snow peas and mushrooms, both of which were very good.

      I really disliked the pork, however, and I don't think the problem was the way I cooked it.

        Well, it isn't everyone's taste. On the other hand, did you steam it through as I have written? Or did you just fry it? You cannot just stir fry it.... Well, you can, but it would be wrong.

          Oh yes, I sure did steam it first.
          I steamed it. Then let it cool. Then sliced it.
          Then stir-fried everything.

          I just didn't like the flavors. Incidentally, I have never liked the Chinese sausage I have had in the past (I used to steam sausage in the rice cooker over the rice).

            Got it. In that case, you know you don't like it for sure. Good luck on other stuffs.

          Which one do you have again?


          Stir=fried sweet peas with cured pork"

          Reasonable translation -


          金然棧臘肉 半條 (蒸熟、切片).
          Take a half strip of Kam Yan Jen cured pork (steamed it and cut in slices).

          荷蘭豆 4 安士 (摘去頭部、洗淨).
          4 oz of peas (remove the head and clean).

          鮮冬菇 4 朵 (一開二).
          4 pieces of fresh mushroom (cut each in half).


          放 1 湯匙油爆炒臘肉片及荷蘭豆及鮮冬菇。
          Use 1 tablespoon of oil to "bao" fry cured ham, pea, and mushroom. "Bao" is a high temperature stir fry technique. So use high flame and quick actions (move the food really fast).

          贊酒 1 湯匙,鹽 1/2 茶匙。
          Add 1 tablespoon of Chinese wine (rice wine or Shaoxing wine), half teaspoon of salt

          Stir fry a few times and ready to go onto a plate.

              Interesting - similar translations, but one says add 1/2 tsp of sugar at the end and the other says 1/2 tsp of salt. Can we get a consensus?

                I am correct.

                The recipe states: "鹽 1/2 茶匙", correct?

                You can do a google translation on "鹽"
