Gordon Lum makes his popular Chinese look funn noodles with chicken - look funn is similar to chow fun but it comes in flat sheets and is cut into thin noodles. The texture is a little more tender than chow fun noodles.
Gordon Lum comes from the family that created Lum's char siu sauce which is still sold worldwide in stores. We met Gordon through Popo June Tong who was also a guest on our Cooking Hawaiian Style TV show. Gordon's spare ribs with black bean sauce is made the old, traditional way with lots of love.

Nothing says 4th of July more than BBQ and nothing says BBQ more to me than pulled pork. I provide a basic oven kalua pork recipe here, but I like to smoke a pork butt in the smoker overnight and use that or at the very least, I like to buy the Ono brand Kalua Pork from the store.
