Shopping for Lap Mei (Waxed Meat) with Mommy
I have to confess that I am guilty of not knowing where does these waxed stuffs comes from. So when MommyC said she is going to get some waxed meat for Chinese New Year, I tagged along. Pictured above is the typical lap cheong that is used in Chinese cooking.
Similarly, these waxed ducks are good to be eaten freshly steamed with arrowroot, served with rice.
These streaky bacon - like meat, I heard they called it lap yuk.
Boneless waxed ducks and lap cheongs.
More assorted waxed stuffs.
All these will make very nice lap mei fan, or waxed meat rice.
