Stir-Fried Tofu with Scallions, Garlic, Ginger, and Soy Sauce from Kalyn's Kitchen

I promised I would share one of my own meatless recipes occasionally as part of the Meatless Monday series, and this Stir-Fried Tofu with Scallions, Garlic, Ginger, and Soy Sauce is one of my very favorite ways to cook tofu.  If you're not that practiced at stir-frying, this recipe has a link to some stir-fry tips that will make sure you get a good result, and this tofu dish with so much flavor from the scallions, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce will turn just about anyone into a tofu convert! ...more

Looks like a great recipe, VVK! And I'm always on the hunt for one-pot meals.

Ken Oringer’s Lacquered Pork Belly With Preserved Lemon, Soy Sake Glaze

This post is the first time I have ever made Braised Pork Belly and now, today, I understand why Pork Belly is so popular. If I were to get another tattoo and if I were a daredevil in my teens, having cooked this: perhaps it would be a pig. Perhaps not. But I understand it...I really do....more

Asian Steak Bowl

Yesterday I came home from work and wanted to make something with steak. I had the very un-original idea to make burritos. A quick peak around the kitchen told me I didn't have my favorite items that I use when it's Mexican night - avocadoes and cilantro. I decided to make an un-stir fry. Why heat up the house when it's 95 degrees outside and there is a perfectly good grill outside. ...more

Thai chicken and basil

 The other day I scored at the grocery store. I mean scored.  I found a massive package of Thai chilies for $1.00. I stood there stunned. It’s not like chilies are expensive, but we don’t normally have Thai chilies in our grocery store. So, I threw those babies in my cart and drove home with a lead foot on the accelerator.  I was excited to make Thai chicken with basil....more

A Korean Stew to Soothe Any Cold (Jaden Hair's Spicy Korean Tofu Stew)

At Food Blog Forum Orlando last weekend I won an amazing prize: Jaden Hair‘s The Steamy Kitchen: 101 Asian Recipes Simple Enough for Tonight’s Dinner. When I got home my little J came down with a fever and cough. My own followed. I wasn’t in the mood to cook, let alone sample new dishes. Or at least I thought I wasn’t. ...more

sweet meat with peas

This title is from my friend Evan. He loved it, and it actually got him to eat his peas! After dinner, I asked my friends, "Guys. What should I call this on my blog?" Evan happily said, "Sweet meat." He was so matter-of-fact about it, like it was the most obvious thing in the world. You're right, Evan. This meat is sweet. And now his fiance and my dear friend Lauren knows she can get him to eat peas if they are covered in soy sauce and brown sugar. Hey, whatever works! ...more

Nice title! Unfortunately I don't like peas. ;)

Soy Sauce Will Make You Yellow
