Penang Lor Bak.

 Lor Bak is marinated pork - roll in thin soybean sheets and then deep fried. Usually served with a small bowl of Loh (a thick broth thickened with corn starch and beaten eggs) and red chilli sauce and  together with a platter of fried Tofu, prawn fritters, century egg, fresh cucumber wedges-a good appetizer.

Thanks to my friend Eddie for these delicious home made Lor Bak from Penang.

Eddie is a Penang guy but now stays in Kuala Lumpur.

On his occasional trip back to Penang with his wife-they will pre-order these delicious home made cooked Lor bak from a local household by the hundred.

As the Lor bak are cooked, I just heat it up in a microwave oven for about three minutes and it was ready to be eaten.

Lor bak-well marinated-chunky cubed pork-sweet and fragrant with just the right amount of 5 spices powder-one of the best that I have ever eaten !
