Chicken Lobak (Five Spice Meat Rolls) Recipe

If you visit Penang during Chinese Gods festivals, you will see lobak or Five Spice Meat rolls being sold near the temple areas along side Leng Chi Kang dessert. Apart from these stalls there are sometimes popiah, laksa, kueh kark and ban jian kuih stalls too. I love to eat the lobak from these stalls while enjoying the live Chinese Opera show at the same time. The lobak would be served with two sauces; chilly and cinnamon based starchy sauce. After eating the lobak, I would wash it down with a bowl of icy leng chi kang dessert. Very satisfying indeed! Anyway, pork is normally used to make lobak but last weekend I tried to make it using chicken meat. Although I still like the original ones using Pork but then the chicken lobak turned out quite good as well minus all the sweet flavours from pork fat! LOL! For lobak recipe please click this link http://peteformation.blogspot.com/2008/11/authentic-penang-lobak-5-spice-meat.html Chinese Opera show and friendly Mr. Loh who runs a lobak stall in Raja Uda, Butterworth from my previous post http://peteformation.blogspot.com/2009/01/lobak-and-leng-chee-kang-stall-sin-tat.html
