hi readers! every now and then I'll be featuring entries from guest bloggers.
today is my first guest post from my husband, also known as Grouchy G. (everyone seems to love that new nickname for him. except him!) since i'm away for 4 weeks, he'll be handling updating duties for me. don't mess up honey!
a few weeks ago, i had a dream in which i invented a new dish called "Four Onion Cha" - with onions, leeks, scallions, and shallots all fried together with pork. I couldn't stop thinking about it and so on S's last weekend here before her trip, I brought that dream into reality.
I'm lazy, so here is a very poor rendition of that recipe in pictures. It tasted better than I dreamed it to taste! word!
you all know how to stirfry with a wok, so do this:
sweat this much scallions:
add this much leeks:
throw a little bit of sugar and dark soy in there. when the leeks start to kinda wilt on the edges, throw this much onions:
and this much shallots:
more dark soy, more sugar and a healthy dose of regular (light) soy. remove all that vegetables to a dish, add several cloves of crushed garlic (more oil if you need of coruse) then this much pork:
that should have been marinated for at least 30 mins in wine, dark soy, sugar, corn starch, and crushed garlic.
then hit it with a cornstarch/water mixture. once that thickens, drizzle the sesame oil. toss it a couple times, turn off the heat and lay out that pork and sauce on top of the 4 onions.
holla. eat with chili oil and beer. that picture looks less good than it tasted.
