Crunchy and Creamy Mashed Potatoes from Little Cook.

Not so long ago we saw one interesting story about a poor cadet Cloud, typical general Sephiroth and of course about a bag of red potatoes! We have been sorry for cadet Cloud, but thank God we are not in an army here but almost like at a restaurant, so both of as Hina-chan and me inspirited went to the kitchen to spoil everybody with a delicious crispy baked potatoes. Of course we would be glad to treat cadet Cloud for his trouble and initiative because in our case it's not punishable but even commendable.
So, to indulge ou
rselves for this recipe we will need red potatoes between 1½ to 2 inches in diameter. Not peeled but washed. ;) For those who don't happen to know how to choose red potatoes they should be firm with smooth-skinned and have bright-red coloring and with few shallow eyes. If it's available then let's begin.
Today in the menu we have:

Roasted Smashed Red Potatoes.

Sweet and Sour Pork ("Old Meat")

There are two dishes named "Sweet and Sour Pork" in China and both of these dishes are from the Cantonese cuisine.
First relates to takeout food and is called
糖醋里脊 - tang cu li ji - translates as "Sweet and Sour Meat" and it looks like this. Usually it is chunks of roasted pork in thick batter covered with a gluey and sickening sweet and sour sauce. But when this dish is well made the chunks are crispy outside and tender inside topped with a well-balanced sweet and sour sauce.
The second dish is called
古老肉 - gu lao rou - translated as "Old Meat" but later it started to be known as Sweet and Sour Pork. Today I will share with you the "Old Meat" recipe. I like it very much :p
I would like to highlight that if you ask for Sweet and Sour Pork in China you will most likely get the first dish. If you need the "Old Meat" version then you need to tell them gu lao rou or show a piece of paper with the sign that is more certain. ;)
So, today in the menu we have:

"Sweet and Sour Pork or Old Meat"
