Crab Stick in Chili-Garlic Sauce

When I was pregnant with Master E. last year, Mr. M became interested in cooking. He would watch me and asks me how to cook a certain dish and I would demonstrate it to him like we were in some cooking show. He would volunteer to cook and then slowly taking control of the kitchen. He almost had overthrown me in the kitchen if I had not read his ulterior motives (of course I secretly like to be overthrown, that means lesser chore for me. Lol). This dish is what I’m talking about here. This is his winning piece which he mustered himself, no cookbook, no coaching. 
Crab stick
Butter
Garlic
Onion
Chilis
Oyster sauce
1) Saute garlic, onion and chilis in the melted butter, about half bar.
2) Add the crab stick, mix well. Season with oyster sauce.
3) That's it.


My Take: So simple yet so delicious. We just love the oil that the butter produced. The oyster sauce gives the butter a good fight in the taste department. Of course credit also goes to the chili for giving this meal a nice kick.
Tip: If you’re a health conscious, do not attempt to even look at it. See that oil?
The verdict: The family comfort food.
