    I LOVE jerky, it’s one of my favorite foods!

  2. MichP says:

    The minute I saw the pictures of the bak kua, I could smell the smoky sweet perfume of roasting bak kua in the Chinatown in Singapore. My mouth waters involuntarily, I’m home. Being so far away for so many years, bak kua is one of the must-haves whenever I go home, which is too infrequent for my liking. It is also New Year, when in every home you visit, a plate of small bak kua squares awaits. Thanks for invoking those memories!

  22. Alex Wong says:

    I remember walking through Kuala Lumpur Chinatown with my grandmother and smelling the wafts of meaty smoke from the roasting of what the Cantonese call “Long Yoke” which supposedly means “deer meat” since the early versions were made from deer. I never got enough of eating the sweet and meaty delights.

  23. Lenny Dewi says:

    I love these, used to get it all the time when I lived in S’pore!

  24. Wendy Loh says:

    The last time I had bak kua was in Sept 2009, bought from Atlanta, 6-7 hours drive from Memphis. I miss bak kua very much! How wonderful if I can win the 1 pound of bak kua for this coming Chinese New Year celebration.

    Thank you Little Red Dot Kitchen!!

    Oh wow! Western jerky has nothing compared to the deliciousness of Malaysian jerky. I once requested some friends from Singapore to sneak some in their luggage. Too bad for me (and them), they were chosen to be searched, and it was confiscated. I never asked for that favor again. ;) To say the least, I’m very excited to see this giveaway! Thanks!

  69. Karen says:

    I love bak kua!

    Wow, so there is BakGua in USA! Missed this food terribly!

  103. Linda Plyem says:

    Bak kua has always been a CNY favorite of mine! I’ve been deprived for far too long :( Thank you RM for this giveaway!

  106. Estee Chin says:

    BAk KUA bring back memories when we were young! Whenever dad goes tO KL (we were still in Pahang)he will surely buy some Bak kua home for us. My sis and my 2 younger brother will wait until he gets home and have a taste of it before we goes to bed. Now living in State makes me “desperately” wanna have it again! Hopefully this Bak Kua would be the one that melt in my heart……….

  107. Anita says:

    Oh I longed for jerkys. Yum!!! Hope to win some.

  108. Jason says:

    That looks so good!!! I’ve had this once while visiting Australia of all places; haven’t been able to find it since.

  109. Nao says:

    It’s great to know that you can purchase bak kua in the US. Will certainly have to order from them sometime. Thanks for sharing this. Good bak kua shouldn’t be too sweet so you can still taste the meat and spices, and of course, perfectly grilled and tender.

  110. Melanie Chong says:

    I missed Malaysian bak kua dearly! You have some other versions here but a hometown bak kua is hard to get!

  111. Jamina says:

    I hope I win! I love jerky from any culture!

  112. Jenn says:

    It will be great to have this “homie” taste in the foreign land with bunch of kawan kawan… =)

  113. Sally says:

    Wow…it’s been awhile I didn’t have it and love to taste what you have introduce and wandering does it taste like Malaysian Bak Kua =)
    Hope I could win a bag of Bak Kua for my Rabbit Chinese New Year =)

  114. Justin Timbers says:

    This looks absolutely delicious! Thanks for the opportunities with all these great giveaways!

  115. Joan says:

    Happy New Year! Good Luck Everyone.

  116. Linda says:

    I love bak kua. Ordered from Little Red Dot Kitchen before, it was delicious, I need more :D

  117. Sofie says:

    Oh my God, Bak Kua! How much I missed them here. It really brings back memory, I can’t find them in Asian store near my city.

  118. Kevin M says:

    This is my all-time favorite treat, just like my dad used to make.

  119. NL says:

    That looks tasty.

  120. Doris Ding says:

    Dying for bak kua. LOL!

  126. Kyle says:

    I am pretty sure that my co-worker (who’s mother grew up in Malaysia) brought some Bak Kua into work once and shared it with me. Absolutely delicious. I’d greatly appreciate the chance to try some more =).

  127. Augustina Anggreny says:

    Those are the best! I remember having them growing up… too bad in the place where I am at, I cannot get any of these. :(

  128. Jamie says:

    Yum! The photo makes it look so enticing! I’ve never had pork jerky before, but I can’t wait to give it a try!

  129. Bas says:

    My wife found this website a while ago, and we love it very much. It has given her inspirations & ideas of what to cook for the family… We love bakkua, too!! :) We always ate a lot of it whenever we have a chance to eat it :)

  130. Bas says:

    We love the bakkua…. ^^ Would love to get some :)

  131. Bob says:

    It looks very tasty!!!I will share it at my super bowl party.

  132. Angeline Duncan says:

    Looking at those mouth watering bak kua reminds me of home and family during Chinese New Year!

  133. Casey says:

    ahh one of the food I miss from Singapore!

  134. Arjun says:

    Never tried it, looks awesome though!

  135. katie knob says:

    Oooohhhh jerky!

  136. Helen says:

    Loving your website.

  137. Gina Woo says:

    I love pork jerky! Will have to visit Sunnyvale soon – do they have a retail store?

  138. Tony Mahoy says:

    Sounds and looks fantastic!

  139. Brian says:

    I love all types of Jerky! I hope I win!! :)

  140. Katie says:

    OMG! That looks SO yummy! I’m drooling on my keyboard. I would love to be the lucky winner of this drawing!

  141. Noho says:

    This is the most delicious snack, along with those shrimp chips that are so hard to find in the US (the kind that you deep fry, mmmm!)

  142. heather says:

    I just found this site..and I am in love-this site is awesome. The jerky looks good too :)

  143. Manea says:

    Love jerk meat of any kind, especially the way my grandparents from China made it.

  144. Norman says:

    When I saw your giveaway of bak kua, I got so excited! Of course, they bring back sweet memories of my childhood with my family back in Malaysia. However, I will never forget one incident which happened when I was probably 8 year-old. My brother and I love bak kua so much we would always fight over it. As a result, my mom decided to store them in a locked drawer. Thinking I was smart, I actually spied on my mom and discovered where she hid the key. Then I would steal a tiny bit from each piece and then place it below the pile so my mom wouldn’t know immediately. Of course, my mom found out it was me at the end because my oily and sticky hand would pass on to my school bag and other possessions. Hmmm…good old memories =). Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

  145. Tabitha Lundstrom says:

    Mmmmmmm, bak kua! My husband was apprehensive about trying it when we were in Malaysia for CNY last year. But once he did, he couldn’t stop!

  146. Tony says:

    This looks really tasty! Thanks for the opportunity!

  147. Lee Fielder says:

    I’ve eaten a lot of jerky, but never pork, and never Asian-style. Hope I get the chance to try this.

  148. Ted says:

    Wow chinese dried meat looks much juicer than the “western” version of dried beef which is like chewying on my belt.

  149. Sharon Adelman says:

    This has to be one of the most eaten and favorite snack among Malaysians. We are picky of our Bak Kua, and we still “stick” by the particular that sells them, like peas-in-a-pod. My favorite Bak Kua stall has to be one in Petaling Street. Not certain if that stall still exists, but it certainly brings back sweet memories.

  150. Tanitra Partivit says:

    Seeing these brings back memories of trips to visit our family in Bangkok. My parents always had bak kua and sticky rice on hand to feed us just us for those long haul flights.

  151. saychinso says:

    hi , it is nice to know we have malaysian bak kua in sunnyvale , california. the closest i could get were some beef jerky from fairfax market in LA butcher shop and they also have “blackstick” which i enjoyed while watching movie. btw. i just fried a batch of “TI koay”. i sandwiched it between a piece of chinese yam and sweet potatoe. i wished i could share it with you. happy chinese new year to you and your young family

  152. Dianne says:

    I saw the picture and thought yummy. I used to make jerky a few years ago and my kids loved it. Used a dehydrator for it but this bak kua I’m sure isn’t anything at all like the “shoe leather” I used to make. lol My son still likes to buy the kind in the bag at the store which is pretty much yuk.
    I and my family would love to try this. I most certainly will make this recipe but wouldn’t mind have a chance to win this too.
    And….Happy New Year to you!!!!!

  153. Linda says:

    I’m sure, this pork jerky is famous among Asian and I’m craving to have a taste of it. My favorite would be the one from Singapore and haven’t had those for at least 13 years. The sweetness, juices and tenderness all combined creates an A-ha moment! I’m sure this Bak Kua is also none to compare and hope to try this one too!

  154. wren says:

    what could be better than winning pork? probably nothing in the whole wide world. thatnks for the kind generosity!

  155. Terrence says:

    I would love to win some of this amazing bakkwa! Have not had it for ages.

  156. Stephanie Mente says:

    Bak Kua is an all time “must” whenever I go back to Malaysia, and every time I am so tempted to smuggle some back to the States. However, I’ve never had the guts to do so and now I need not even consider it :) Yay!!

  157. Jennifer Wong says:

    I love the Bak Kua (esp. the Malaysian kind). Haven’t eat it for almost 20 yrs since I came to US, which means hasn’t been back as well for that long to celebrate Chinese New Year. Oh! really miss the food. By the way, I enjoy the website every much.

  158. JP says:

    Sounds good to me!

  159. Alice McLean Barnes says:

    I would love to share this with my friends at our lunar new year celbration. Thanks so much!!!

  160. Jane H. says:

  174. Malou says:

    I lived in SG for a while and loved Bee Cheng Hiang’s version! Too bad US Customs will confiscate meat products carried personally so we were not able to bring any here. Would love to try LRDK’s product!

  175. Tricia says:

    So SHIOK! Love Bak Kwa!

  176. Janie says:

    Mmmmmm, I love Bak Kua! Can we get their products in Vegas? :-)

  177. Ivy Koay-Araujo says:

    I was born Australian but spent 5 years of my childhood living in Malaysia. I loved eating Bak Kua (Malaysian Jerky) sandwiches! My husband and I lived in Hawaii where I could still find Bak Kua baked in sweet rolls in China Town bakeries. In June 2010, I took my husband & two friends from Hawaii to Malaysia & Singapore, where hubby & friends had their first taste of Bak Kua in Singapore! And now can understand why I’m addicted! In a Hawaiian term for delicious, it’s so Ono! We moved to Alaska July 2010 and am suffering great Malaysian food withdrawals :( There are no good eats here, no China Town, no more Bak Kua!

  178. john says:

  187. christine ito says:

    I love pork jerky. Everytime I visit Chinatown in New York City I pass by the Malaysian Jerky shop. They make Beef, pork and spicy jerky. I’ve only bought it once though, since i am a student I don’t have a lot of extra spending money. But it was delicious! I’ve also had it when I visited Hong Kong. My Aunt bought us some. YUMMMY.

  188. Lucy Midelfort says:

    Mmmm. Delicious! I hope I win!

  189. Poh Lai Kirwan says:

    I luv bak kua! Always reminds me of the time when I came back from visiting Singapore and I had bought bak kua back with me. And airport customs had to take it coz it wasn’t allowed. I was soooo sad! Should have eaten it there and then! :)

    I love Bak Kua. Used to hidding some from Malaysia and sometimes my mom brought me some from New York. I really like the Bak Kua with slice meat. Wish I can win this lovely “BAK KUA”….lol

  201. Dorothy Lin says:

    When I see the pictures of “Bak kwa” in your column my mouth waters and I am very homesick. Just came back from a long vacation in KL,Singapore and Macau. Eat “buk kwa” from Singapore,KL,and Macau. The ones from KL taste the best. I wonder if The Little Red Dot Kitchen version is even better than the ones from KL.

  204. Erika says:

    Bak Kua is absolutely my favorite thing about Chinese New Year, besides money of course !

  205. Kevin K says:

    In “The Merchant of Venice”, Shylock’s pursuit of Antonio’s pound of flesh was utterly ruthless to say the least. After over half a decade of staying abroad, I dare say my own pursuit of a single pound of the perfect “bak kua” was equally ruthless, with no less drama. Here’s my “recipe”:

    1) Knocked up the missus
    2) Suggested a trip back to Malaysia to satisfy her pregnancy cravings with a monster dose of PENANG HAWKER FOOD
    3) Flew to Malaysia
    4) Sampled copious amounts of all varieties at the “bak kua” specialty store
    5) Purchased the most mouth-watering kinds
    6) Returned to the States
    7) “Forgot” to declare the “bak kua” in the inflight customs declaration form
    8) Made doubly sure the K-9 “sniffer” Units were a safe distance before retrieving bags from carousel
    9) Acted nonchalantly while approaching last custom official before exit point
    10) Asked missus to look and sound tired while rubbing pregnant tummy (refer to step 1) and maintaining a poker face when telling the custom official we didn’t have any food items in our bags.

    Voila! Unwrap your little bundle of joy (I mean the “bak kua” of course) and ENJOY :D

    *** Disclaimer: Individual results may vary. This is based on my successful experience and my last name is not Pitt or Jolie so I will not adopt your baby if you end up sharing your “bak kua” (yes, I mean YOUR “bak kua”) with some “ah kua” in jail.
