Rice Vermicelli in Sarawak

米粉,汉族特色小吃,是中国南方地区非常流行的美食。米粉以大米为原料,经浸泡、蒸煮和压条等工序制成的条状、丝状米制品。米粉中由于添加了红薯粉、土豆粉等原料,使得口感,保存方式等都与米线有了很大的区别。

米粉品种众多,可分为排米粉、方块米粉、波纹米粉、银丝米粉、湿米粉和干米粉等。

江门排粉是江门侨乡传统的名牌食品。江门排粉生产过程不添加任何添加剂、纯大米制作、外表略带虾肉色是江门排粉的最大特点。

兴化米粉白如雪,细如丝,略有米香味,干脆可贮藏。它是莆田(古代称兴化军、兴化府)的著名土特产。兴化米粉的特点,条细而匀,色泽洁白,轻松晶莹,煮炒易熟,汤干均可,饮食便利,独具一种风味。


 
粉干即米制粉干,福建省尤溪县新阳镇特产,在明代中期就开始特作粉干,具有五百多年的历史。它具有色白、条细、耐煮、松软等特点,炒煮、干拌均可,味香可口。粉干生产的基本原料大米,包括晚米、早米、籼米和粳米等。


Only in Sarawak : Corned Beef



Corned beef is a salt-cured beef product. The term comes from the treatment of the meat with large grained rock salt, also called "corns" of salt. It features as an ingredient in many cuisines. Most recipes include nitrates or nitrites, which convert the natural hemoglobin in beef to methaemoglobin, giving a pink color. It has been argued that nitrates reduce the risk of dangerous botulism during curing. Beef cured with salt only has a gray color, and is sometimes called "New England corned beef". Often sugar and spices are also added to recipes for corned beef.


It was popular during both World Wars, when fresh meat was rationed. Corned beef remains popular in the United Kingdom and countries with British culinary traditions and is commonly used in sandwiches, corned beef hash or eaten with chips and pickles. It also remains especially popular in Canada in a variety of dishes, perhaps most prominently Montreal smoked meat.



Corned beef is commonly found in shelves of grocery stores and supermarkets throughout Sarawak.   Across the South China Sea, in Malaya, corned beef is something shockingly unheard of.
