Fatty Bom-bom

"Eh, no pineapple tarts from you this year? But I always get pineapple tarts from you :~("

"I want 2 containers of your peanut cookies ok?"

"Aren't you baking this year?"

Nope, I'm really not in the mood for any CNY baking this year. My oven is still BLAHHH, and I just moved, the house is a mess, ...I just want to rest. So don't expect any homemade stuff from me this year.

But of course, that does not mean No Goodies at Teckiee's. Inspired by Precious Pea's homemade char siew (You should really have her show you the picture. Perfect layers of meat and fat), I came up with this quick cook up finger food that can be easily served to anyone called Fatty Bom-bom!

All you need is "long yoke" aka "daging salai" aka BBQed dried meat, cheese, and toothpicks. Cut your long yoke and cheese into small squares (or circles, stars, diamonds ;p), and layer them up. Hold them together with a toothpick and arrange them on a plate to be served.

You can use pork (or chicken if you are entertaining Muslim friends) "long yoke". Try using the softer "long yoke", the ones which the meat are minced then made into the "long yoke". The whole strip "long yoke" tend have less moisture and hard.

For the cheese, try using soft cheese, or stronger (as in the smell) cheese. I used the Dutch smoked black pepper cheese which went really well with the "long yoke". I think Gorgonzola will go well with this as well.

Side track: I bought the cheese at Cold Storage in One Utama. The guy cutting the cheese reminded my sister of a Malay version of Gio, the Sandwich guy from Ugly Betty. I totally agree! I kind of had fun talking about cheese with him. LOL!

Hm... only thing missing how is a glass of red wine... slurp slurp. Goes well with red, or any booze!
