PORK BITTER MELON

PORK BITTER MELON 3

Pork with bitter melon. A little salty and bitter going on here. This wok dish is influenced by my Filipino background. We take 12 oz. of thin sliced pork loin, season the meat in some garlic, ginger, and fish sauce. Then wok stir fried, with a little soy sauce added. Then slices of bitter melon towards the end. The bitter melon is bitter, it will take a few times eating it, however if you are a daring couple, this dish is lively. The garlic and fish sauce will fill the kitchen with an aroma you will get used to. Served with white or brown rice, or stir fried rice with veggies.

1 LB. BACON CHOW FUN

1 LB BACON CHOW FUN 4

Chow fun noodles is my favorite. This is a huge plate made for 4. But this is for lovers, that special couple, and most likely there will be leftovers. It actually tastes great the next day-cold. You heard me. Cold.

I fry to a crisp thick cuts of bacon. Then stir-fry the chow fun noodles in the bacon drippings. Now we are talking a pound of bacon before cooking, and 21 oz. of fresh chow fun noodles. Simply  seasoned with salt, pepper, soy sauce and sesame oil. Fresh veggies, and steamed bok choi.

CHINESE 5 SPICE ROASTED PORK LOIN

CHINESE 5 SPICE PORK LOIN 4

16 oz. of pork loin, seasoned simply with salt and pepper, with a Chinese 5 spice rub. Served with white or brown rice, or fried rice with veggies. Choose a dipping sauce such as a sweet and spicy soy sauce. Or a hot mustard sauce. Save the leftovers for breakfast, or toss in a bowl of ramen.

LOBSTER TAILS WITH BLACK BEAN BUTTER

LOBSTER TAIL WITH BLACK BEAN BUTTER

For lovers, 2 steamed lobster tails, cracked shell, topped with generous amounts of fermented black soy beans for the salty. Sherry wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, mirin, garlic and butter rounds it all off.

SESAME BEEF MUSHROOMS

Beef and mushrooms go hand in hand, and when it’s tender Angus sirloin, seasoned with sherry, sesames, with soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and hoisin sauce, with salt and pepper at the end, here’s an entree for two lovers to share. Served with a bowl of white or brown rice. Or stir fried rice with veggies.

 

 

CHICKEN IN BLACK BEAN SAUCE

CHIX BLACK BEAN SAUCE 6

Chicken in black bean sauce, this dish is perfect for lovers into wok cooking. 10-12 oz. of diced dark or white meat chicken, stir fried to perfection with a black bean sauce made up of fresh minced ginger, garlic, chicken stock, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, fermented salted black beans, topped with some scallions and roasted sesame seeds.

Paired with a Pinot Blanc, a fruity white wine, that balances out the saltiness of this full flavored dish. This dish is great using other proteins as well, a very tender sirloin of beef,  Duroc pork loins, Ahi, Mahi, shrimp, scallops, tofu. The sauce is a good marriage to any protein. If you are vegan, try an eggplant in black bean sauce.

 

 

CHICKARRONES

CHICKORONES IN PANCHICKARONES ON PLATE

I remember watching my mom, dad, and late brother Harold cook. They did not waste anything. For instance trimmings of vegetables and meats were never thrown away if all possible. “You can make stock and soups with the trimmings,” my brother the trained chef would say. He was all about efficiency, productivity and being profitable. There was no reason the home kitchen could not be held accountable for waste.

“Save the extras, I can make stir fry tomorrow,” mom would say. And dad was more blunt, “Don’t throw that ______ _______ away!” OK. Save it, use it, feed the peeps right? Right.

So in this post, I fried some chicken skins. Like pork skins chicharrones, I saved some chicken skin from the legs, and coated it with salt and pepper and cornstarch hence Chickarrones. Great for beer busts, and snacking. OK, maybe not so healthy but once in a while if you love that kind of foods.

Love, enjoy each other. Rock & Roll all the way. Good food, good lovers, life is good my friends.

CHICKEN CHOW MEIN

CHICKEN CHOW MEIN.jpg

For you lovers that want to hire me for a simple lunch. That’s right. You both are home, and tired from all that love making, man you built up that late morning, noon hunger. But you don’t want to dress up and head to your local Chinese joint do you? I mean traffic, parking. Some bum at the corner harassing you for 10 bucks. And when you hand him 10, some other bums notice that you got cash, then they hit on you. Nope, don’t want that crap. In fact lovers work hard. You want to relax. Don’t you? So how about this, lunch time comes around, you call me up, “Hey Ron, me and my lover is hungry, can you make us (In your own kitchen), some fresh Chinese style?”

Imagine- you’re just at home, relaxing, watching the t.v., or not. And I do all the shopping, prepping, cooking (in your kitchen), and clean up, and leave. While you enjoy home cooking in your own home. Cool right? Of course. So I’ll come over, cook up some white sticky rice, set up the table for ya. (Oh, I can bring the alcoholic bevies to you, but for insurance and liabilities, you will need to open any bottles or cans and pour it yourselves.) But nonetheless, I’m whipping up whatever you order in my wok. Hey I’m a rocker baby! Heavy Metal, balls to the wall, I don’t full around, I make it happen! So I whip up the rice, set it on the table, I do the chow mein, set it on the table. Maybe some other dishes, or appetizers, all good my friends. Live life, Love it, enjoy it!
