Taiwanese Braised Pork with Rice…Yumm

Last Sunday we hosted one of our mission trip fundraising efforts in true CFBC fashion, with a luncheon! My mother always said, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…hasn’t helped me yet but it certainly helped with our church congregation.

We wanted to bring a little cultural awareness to our Hong Kong based community, as well as prepare our stomachs for their own upcoming adventure, so we chose to cook and serve a traditional Taiwanese Braised Pork over Rice dish (Lu Rou Fan). It certainly was popular among our congregation, since we saw people going back for seconds and thirds.

Overall the event was a success! With a turnout of over 60 people, we were able to raise around $870. It was a team and family effort with the parents of our team lending their wonderful cooking skills, and the youth fellowship contributing their superb pan frying and cleaning abilities. It certainly was a sight to behold.
