Instant Vacuum Packed Ah Her Bak Kut Teh

I never dine in Ah Her Bak Kut Teh and take away bak kut teh nowaday is quite challenging when dine in is still not allowed. I reckon hot boiling bak kut teh is not suitable to be packaged in a plastic container as we never know whether dangerous chemicals might be released from the packaging to the food.

With every challenge comes innovation. I am amazed that Ah Ker Bak Kut Teh has come out with a ready to eat packaging for the convenience of their customers. I learned from Youtube videos that this type of vacuum packed packaging has been adopted by a few bak kut teh outlets in Klang few years ago

The packet was frozen to keep it fresh and comes with different parts of the pork individually packaged; lean meat, ribs, intestine and etc. It was packaged in an insulation bag to maintain it at low temperature.

It is pretty easy to prepare. Just take it out from the freezer a few hours earlier to defrost. Then submerged the packet into a boiling water inside a pot for 20 minutes without tearing the package. Since it is vacuum packed, there will be no bubble in it and heating in such manner will not expand the packaging.

After that, just tear off the package and the bak kut teh is ready to be served. In term of portion, one packet is just about for 1 person serving. It tastes alright and the meat was soft. I not too sure whether it has lost some of its taste in the process as I never dine at their outlet. The broth is light and there isn't much volume in the package.

Although it cannot match a freshly cooked bak kut teh from the restaurant itself, it is still a decent way to get a quality bak kut teh at this tough time.
