Chicken and Pork Comfort Over Rice

Monday, March 9, 2009

Sometimes you get home tired and you just want to eat. Nothing fancy, just something easy, filling, and made in one pot. The ingredients in this dish are based on what we had in the fridge and the flavor profile is Chinese because I wanted to use left-over rice. I didn’t expect much from this last minute, thrown-together dish. I didn’t think this would be a recipe to post, but it is. If you’re familiar with Chinese food, it’s a cross between Soy Sauce Chicken and a Taiwanese dish of Minced Pork with Sauce Drizzled on Rice. Two comfort foods combined in one really hit the spot for me so I had to share.

Ma Po Tofu

Ma Po Tofu 2

*above picture was added (old removed) 11/16/13

Ma Po Tofu is actually very easy to make. It’s one of the first recipes I asked my mom to teach me. It’s a little difficult to give you exact measurements for the recipe though. There are so many types of tofu, from silken to firm, all giving off different amounts of water when cooked. All of them taste good. It’s just a matter of preference. The picture above is one made with medium firm tofu, which Lon prefers. The one below is a soft tofu, which I like equally as much as the firmer tofu. This recipe is also quite mild, suitable for most, but if you like things spicy, you can add more chili garlic sauce.

Pulled Pork & Killer BBQ Sauce

Sunday, January 4, 2009

Wandering through BJs the other day, Jessica spotted a luscious looking pork leg and asked if I thought we should make it. Of course my answer was “YES!” However, the two of us came to our senses and decided to just buy a pork shoulder weighing in at just under nine pounds, as opposed to the leg, which was probably 20 or 25 pounds.

Fish Head Soup

Wednesday, December 24, 2008

As a holiday gift, I’m giving you the recipe for one of my all time favorite things to eat in the winter: Fish Head Soup. I asked my mom to teach me how to make it the other day. Unfortunately, that means some of the measurements are not exact. I did my best to catch things and measure them before my mom threw it in, but sometimes I failed. Use this as a guideline, then taste, and adjust to preference.

Traditionally, Fish Head Soup is made with a fish head, but they messed up at the supermarket. My mom asked them to cut the fish in half and instead of cutting it in half cross-wise, they cut it length-wise. You can make it either way.

Tonkatsu

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Tonkatsu is simply pork cutlets, considered part of a whole genre of food called Yoshoku, Japanese interpretations of Western food. Well here’s my take on it. You’ll notice a little bit of Malaysian curry powder, which adds just a touch of something special and a teeny kick. No one will be able to tell what the secret ingredient is though.

Pork and Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

I’ve been seeing Lettuce Wraps grow in popularity at Chinese restaurants, now often served as a dish at banquets. We had a Clam filled Lettuce Wrap at our rehearsal dinner and a Shrimp and Pork filled one at Peking Duck Forest. The filling ideas are endless but based on what we had at home, I made this one. We both loved it.

Moroccan Spiced Pork Chops with Pluot Sauce

Sunday, August 31, 2008

This is an impressive main course to serve to guests (ours were Angie and Scott). The pretty pink sauce is fruity and tangy, a perfect balance for the spicy pork. What’s even better about this recipe is that most of the work can be done ahead of time.

Three Herb Pork Tenderloin on Ciabatta

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

I threw together this pork tenderloin, thinking that I would heat up some left over rice to serve with it, but then Lon called and he was going to be late coming home from work. The pork was already in the oven and almost ready to come out. It would no longer be hot when he arrived. Quickly, I switched dinner plans, the room temperature pork would now be made into a sandwich. When Lon got home, I sliced the pork into 1/2 inch slices, and laid it on ciabatta with a spread (half mayo/half whole grain mustard).
