New Dish - Silk Squash
I guess all mommies did see this vegetable before in the wet market....it is called SILK SQUASH.silk squash is also called Chinese okra and angled luffa. Only immature silk squash are eaten, as older silk squash have a bitter taste. Silk squash can be stuffed with pork and steamed. However, it is more commonly stir-fried or deep-fried.
When buying Chinese okra, look for young ones that are firm and have an unblemished skin. Despite the sharp ridges, Chinese okra does not need to be peeled before using.
This is Ryan' new dishes for his yesterday dinner.I just do a stir-fried, add some sliced garlic and pork with some seasonings. It tastes sweet and yummy.
