Brown Garlic Sauce

10 Jul


This is the salty, garlic sauce that I never made but loved it in the Chinese food.

2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce. Only use low sodium or else it will be too salty.

1 cup low sodium chicken stock

1/3 cup rice wine

4 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons minced ginger

2 tablespoons corn starch

2 pounds ground pork

Mix the soy sauce, broth, wine, sugar, sesame oil and pepper together. Set aside

Heat the 2 tablespoons oil

Add the garlic and ginger

Cook for one minute

Add the pork and cook till well done

Add the sauce and bring to a boil

Mix the cornstarch with two tablespoons of the meat juices till it is dissolved

Add the cornstarch and cook till it starts to thicken

Serve with white rice

This is not a pretty dish but it is really good.



Steak and Eggs

18 May

Steak and eggs

My sons love this and once in a while I do indulge them.

One pound of thin sliced steak tips

One tablespoon butter

One tablespoon oil

One large sliced onion

1/2 diced hot pepper without the seeds

8 beaten eggs

Heat the butter and oil in a pan.

Add the onion and pepper.

Saute for two or three minutes

Stir to cook but keep the onions almost raw and crunchy.

Add the meat and cook till medium well.

Season with salt

Add eggs and scramble till cooked.

You can add cheese now if you like.

I decided to be a little healthy and add pea shoots.

The pea shoots took away the guilt of eating beef for breakfast.
