Take part in some Singapore snacking with this amazing thing called bak kwa. If you like jerky, if you like things spicy and the barest bit of sweet, here it is. All of those likes have come together in a magical unicorns-and-rainbows nosh called bak kwa, morsels of pure joy disguised as a savory Singapore street food. Bite into this beefiness from Little Red Dot and know that all is well in your mouth.
Hoo-boy. Bak kwa. I'd never heard of such a thing before about a month ago, when I found myself with this lovely cow-decorated package. I took a few chewy savory bites, waited for the spice to hit, and then grinned. The name bak kwa is from a popular snack food in Singapore, but the recipe has been adapted for modern primal values and convenient snacking.
All the components of highly delectable nosh work incredibly together — meaty, salty, spicy, and a perfect touch of spices. This is a chef's very own rendition of portable gourmet food at its best, rich flavors and slow roasted to perfection: Little Red Dot's Spicy Chipotle Beef. Bak kwa lovers have given it a thumbs up as a perfect snack for foodies. And foodies? We're loving it too. Spicy, sweet, savory — bursting with umami in ever chewy bite.
Made from 100% pure Angus, this spicy chipotle beef bak kwa is handsomely seasoned in smoky chipotle and cayenne pepper then roasted to perfection. Packed with heat and a hint of berry from locally sourced strawberries, a touch of sweetness rounds this beef snack out perfectly. This beef bak kwa might look like jerky, but it's not.
First, great ingredients. High quality sourcing is the most important part of putting good food in your mouth.
Let's start with the cattle. Traced to the source, the selection of cattle are sustainably and humanely raised on U.S. farms. Cattle are fed with no hormones or antibiotics added. Only U.S.D.A. Choice Angus makes the cut in this kitchen.
Soy Sauce - Non GMO verified, certified Kosher, and All-Natural.
Fish Sauce - one of the fish sauce we sourced, Red Boat, is an all-natural, first press fish sauce that uses only the freshest cá com (black anchovy) sourced exclusively from the crystal clear waters off the Phu Quoc Island, slow aged in traditional wooden barrels.
Little Red Dot's classic bak kwa is often enjoyed lightly reheated to release its caramelization and fresh-off-the-grill deliciousness. We recommend lightly toasting our bak kwa for 2-3 minutes at 350ºF, or microwaved for 15 seconds.
It's fun, seriously. Say it five times fast and I assure you a smile will creep over your face.
Our facility has not been certified Gluten Free. However, all ingredients we source are free of gluten, dairy and nuts. All protein are also without growth hormones, antibiotics or artificial anything!
Marbling (or fat deposits) are more common in our Pork Bak Kwa as Pork are naturally higher in fat content than its poultry or beef counterparts. Fat deposits are usually whitish and slightly translucent (below image is an example of fat deposits). Simply toast or microwave quickly for 15 seconds to bring back the smoky-char!
