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.

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.

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.

 

 

LEMON CHICKEN

LEMON CHICKEN

Lemon Chicken, a Chinese style dish. Simply made with dark meat chicken thighs, skin on, bone off. Seasoned with salt and pepper, depending on the eater (client), sometimes I’ll marinate the meat in sherry wine, sesame oil, and pepper, and dredge it in cornstarch for a rather crisp exterior but a juicy insides. This was simply seasoned and coated in flour. It was wok fried, and each piece was dipped in a lemon sauce. The lemon sauce generally is very tangy, since it is…lemon sauce. However with the American style Chinese foods, eaters on this side of the globe for some reason wants their lemon sauce more on the sweet side, making it a… sweet and sour sauce with hints of lemon. This is a tricky sauce. So if you hire me, I do need to know, if you can handle the tanginess of lemons, or you are more on the sweet side of the tanginess. The good thing is, you’ll get the flavor you want. Sometimes you go to a restaurant and request something on the menu to be less pronounced and the chef gives you an attitude. So then. Lemon Chicken can be any flavor you want it to be. Heck you might want tangerines instead of lemons it’s all good.

 

SPAMEGGY

SPAMEGGY 10

The SPAMEGGY (Spam-eggee) is a sandwich made up of 2 slices of Spam (low sodium), sizzled in vegetable oil, and placed on an all-grain bread slice. Then 2 large over-medium cooked eggs placed on top of the Spam, then covered with another slice of all-grain bread.

No sauces or condiments are put on, if anyone wants a slice or two of their favorite cheese, it will melt quickly on this hot creation. Dijon mustard along with fresh made mayonnaise or Hollandaise would work as well.

CHEEZEGGY

I did a breakfast the other morning for a couple in love here on Maui, it was simple. Fresh squeezed O.J., a fresh organic papaya, seeded, and filled with grapes, pineapple, and some melons, topped with fresh squeeed lemons, and topped with some pure cane brown sugar. French pressed Kona, some Portuguese sausage, and my simple creation called the ‘Cheezeggy’….

Simply a grilled American cheese sandwich (2) slices, grilled in a hot buttered pan. And then 2 over easy large eggs cooked in butter, and placed over the grilled cheese, hence the ‘Cheezeggy’….topped with sea salt, and fresh ground black pepper. Did the two loverbirds love it? They sure did, why? It was simple and comforting.

And that’s me my friends, Ron the simple chef for lovers! Call me 808-385-7667 for an entertaining breakfast, lunch, or dinner at your place!
