Yam Kau Yuk
is a popular dish in the coffee shop, or joo chou shop.

These Yam Kau Yuk bowls take long time to steam to perfection. 
The meat should be soft and tender,
whereas, the yam must remain in pieces!

They are usually prepared days ahead and frozen until required.

I love kau yuk.
So whenever I cook this dish,
I will cook an extra bowl to freeze.

Yam Kau Yuk
Spread out to see the pork belly and soften skin attached

Yam Kau Yuk
 can either be done in a slow cooker,
as the first photo, steamed in an electric lunch box.
