Buy the A1 BKT mix from giant.

For 4 servings of pork or chicken.

Add 2 piece of kayu manis

Add 4 piece of bunga cengkih

Add 5 bulb of smashed garlic

Add black soya sauce to taste and colour..hehehe

Boil all the rempah until your kitchen smell BKT (bout an hour).

Add the meat and boil until meat is tender. Dont put the meat earlier as the meat will be tastless later.

My version (which my mother taught me) - don't use soya sauce to darken. The 'blackness' of BKT comes from a chinese herb called "siok tay". You only need to add a few slices. It looks like black and soft tree bark.

Also, we use the roasted garlic bulbs (do not peel). - yummy, yummy

Depending on the BKT mix, you can add dong quai but it can be a bit heaty if you add too much and you may get pimples after a few days.

Normally, I would boil the meat and remove. Then add the meat back into the pot about half and hour before serving (we normally cook the soup for few hours).

We had BKT for dinner at home last night :-) with lots of "yau char koay".

Try it and hope you like this variation.

Err...Orchi wishes to add to the earlier good recommendations by some here...whilst the meat(in bigger chunk) is being stewed in the pot...usually there would be a buildup layer of oil floating on the surface of the soup...do get rid of this 'fatty' substances...during the entire cooking process...

Oh...BTW...could be advisable to NOT opt for adding too much dark soya sauce...which wouldn't add much 'taste' into the meat...but rather it might 'kill' the natural taste of the meat...

Orchi would also avoid using the dark soya sauce all together...err...instead Orchi would compliment the taste of the soup with a good grade light soya sauce(not them cheap cheap ones)...a bit of sugar...n a bit of dark vinegar...ahem...it would 'enrich' the soup n to a certain extent...enriching the flavour...n 'tenderizing' the meat as well...

Err...Orchi wouldn't see the need to add any table salt...which would 'harden' the meat somewhat...

Last but not least...for those that might dislike the 'raw' or 'fatty' taste of the fork BKT...Orchi would recommend to NOT forget to garnish the soup with some chopped coriander leaves...:)

There is a much easier way to prepare Bah Kut Teh:

- Firstly, you must travel to Kelana Jaya to the stretch of shoplots just after the Kelana Jaya LRT station.
- There is a Bah Kut Teh shop that also sell the ingredient, RM8/pack

Cooking method:
- Take a pot and put in 3 bucket of water (the size of the bucket is equivalent to the plastic bucket used for bathing)
- throw in the herb
- throw in up to 3 kg of meat
- boil for 55 - 105 mins, depends on how soft you want the meat.
- put in the soya sauce to taste, remember, the packet of herb already have some salt.

That's all folks. So far, everyone that tried it loved it.....my guarantee to you. No hassle and no extra ingredient needed.

ANother cheaper version is to go to any chinese medical hall and ask the towkay to pack his mixture of bkt. It shouldn't cost more than rm5.00 for his rempah :D ...then u follow Stan's cooking instructions...its also great to 'ka-liew' and 'improve' according to our taste :D

p/s can we use beef/oxtail as the meat? Anyone tried b4?
Thanks.

Err...sure Tupai:)...ya can be really creative...Orchi would add into the stew with a few pieces of bunga chengkih...or 'pat kok'...to 'soften' the 'raw aroma' of beef...n IF ya really wanna have a go at it...do crack open a can of abalone n add it into the pot...n extinguish the fire...:)

Y.A.B Lato' Tupai,

Instead of beef/oxtail, perhaps you may wanna try replacing it with chicken...so, it'll become "chic-kut-teh" instead of "bak-kut-teh"...don worry, still taste as good as original... ;)

Maybe u should also try having BKT with yam-rice next time...there's a coffee-shop in Taman Sri Muda, Shah Alam...the yam rice is excellent!

Standard (in terms of taste) is just average...nothing to shout abt but darn pricey though. Once I ordered take-away serving of 1 pax, they charged RM9 plus... :rolleyes:

Hope you'll find below helpful:-

1) There's a seller on motorbike who does his daily roundings around USJ14/USJ 9...

2) SS14 mini wet-market...

3) There used to be a "mobile" stall in USJ6 esp. when the temporary morning market was still operating near the apartment areas.

4) Wet market at SS15...

5) Meaty House at Taipan

6) Carrefour, non-halal section
