Stir Fry Chicken with Broccoli

There are some nights all I want to eat for dinner is a bowl of rice with some sort of Asian stir-fry. With stir-fry dishes you can pretty much use any veggies you have on your hand — I get mine from my veggie garden during spring time like it is now. Today I will be using broccoli, showing you how to get just the right amount of tenderness and flavor.

Spicy Pork with Cabbage

I love cooking but even I like to go out to eat sometimes, or just to get takeout. One of our standby places to go is a local Korean food cart. The last time we went I ordered a spicy pork dish and then ate it at a local park. Many locals rave about this food cart, but to be honest the food is a bit bland for my husband and I. I think it’s because they make it mild for American tastes, or are just trying to save on costs. Vegetables and spices are not cheap and so this restaurant may compromise on flavor to keep the food at a certain price point.

Stir Fried Pepper Steak

If you go to the food court of any big shopping mall you will almost always find a Chinese restaurant of some sort. A long time ago when I worked in a mall, I would often eat lunch at that mall’s Chinese restaurant with my co-worker. My favorite thing to order was Chinese Pepper Steak. Unlike many restaurants this place cooked it fresh right in front of you as you stood in line. It was always worth the wait for this fantastic dish. Today I will try to replicate that.
