4. Make a Snack Sandwich
Replace nitrite-filled deli ham or luncheon meat with lower sodium, antibiotic and hormones free Bak Kwa. We love some smoky Gouda Cheese with a slice of baguette. You can add some avocado, perfectly poached egg to your sandwich too.
5. Perfect Topping on Congee
PORRIDGE WITH TURKEY BAK KWA
In the Southeast Asian culture, Congee, also known as Chinese rice porridge, is often eaten for breakfast, dinner and sometimes midnight snacks. We eat it when we are under weather and when we crave for something warm for the tummy. And one of our favorite congee toppings is, well, you've guessed it, Bak Kwa.

THE SNACK: Nice Jerky If You Can Get It (And You Can)
When Ching Lee found that stateside beef jerky wasn’t satisfying her cravings for bak kwa—the marinaded-and-grilled meat snack popular in her native Malaysia—she launched her own line. Her company Little Red Dot steeps strips of meat in a spiced marinade before cooking them over high heat, with succulent results. On offer currently: the traditional pork and turkey varieties, seasoned with a sweet rice wine/soy sauce mixture; two beef options, one subtly lemongrass-flavored, the other spiked with spicy chipotle chili; and an addictive hickory-smoked candied bacon that hits both sweet and salty notes. Ms. Lee suggests lightly toasting the pork or turkey to bring out the juiciness. Or, for a killer BLT, swap in the bacon bak kwa. Of course, straight-out-of-the-bag is a perfectly acceptable serving style, too. From $8 per bag, reddotkitchen.com

When you browse through aisles of protein bars, meat sticks, granola bars, jerky, pepperoni sticks, it can get tricky to find healthy, portable sources of protein reading through food labels. Hydrolyzed soy protein, monosodium glutamate, hydrogenated oil, many snacks are packed with gluten, salt, nitrites, preservatives.
Bak Kwa is a delicious, grab and go, Singapore-style street meat snack that’s moist, not-so-hard-to-chew-on and bold in flavors.
Foodies love them, gym nuts love them, and we love them!
