Bak Kwa (Pork Jerky – Malaysian style)

After a taste of the bak kua I bought in Canada, it triggered off a craving for it. Since I can’t buy it here, I had to make it myself.

Here it is before going into the oven for the drying process.

After the drying process, cut into little pieces & throw them on the grill . . .

Nice grill marks! Almost there……..

Tada….. the final product. Looks a litte burnt but that’s the way I like it. Yum, so good! I might be a little biased but I think it taste better than the ones I bought! hahaha……

    Mommy,
    Your Bak Kua looks so good.. Can share the recipe with us or not???
    Eh, I just remember I still have some bak kua bought from Malaysia 6 months ago and still in freezer. Do you think they are still good?

    wah, u brought all the way back from Msia ar?? I think if u had sealed it tight & got no freezer burn, shld still be ok. Will type the recipe out soon.

    I did a similar bak kua before, and it’s very good! 🙂

    Homemade ones somehow taste better, ya?

    Your bak kua looks delicious. I also must try to make my own cos outside here is selling quite expensive and I dont think so it is so hygenic.

    Ya, u shld try to make this. Homemade ones are always better than store-bought ones. Definitely more hygenic!! 😀

    Hi,
    I just discovered your blog….and man…..I am drooling looking at all your food pictures. Can you please share your bak Kua recipe with me.
    BTW, I am a Malaysian living in Oregon, been here for 14 years. Really not any good Malaysian food here. There is on called Malay Satay Hut that I believe has one or two in WA….but aiayah. I grew up in Ipoh, love to cook and love to eat….so that is quite sub standard.
    PS.
    LOVE your blogs.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. I’ve been to Malay Satay Hut too & I don’t really enjoy it either. Hope you’ll come back again.
