Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

asian pork and vegetables

here is your template for any Asian entree;  just substitute the lean meat, the chopped vegetables and the crunchy additions.  this is a very easy recipe that is easily adapted to your own selections and preferences.

begin with your lean meat.  i chose thin strip of pork, but beef or chicken could also be used.  prepare about 1/2 pound of your choice of meat.  mix the meat with 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sherry or red wine, and 1 teaspoon cornstarch.

next, prepare your choice of vegetables for the stir fry.  i chose broccoli, red pepper and white onion.  other choices would be:  any green vegetable, carrots, or cauliflower.  use about 2 cups of these total.  then, for a crunch to the dish, add 1/2 cup of bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, bean sprouts or even sliced celery.  any of these will work in the dish.  i used celery.

add about 2 tablespoons of canola oil to an electric skillet or wok, and stir fry your meat first, adding the vegetables and crunchy additions.  this entree comes together in a matter of minutes and is typically enjoyed by everyone.

serve with rice or lo mein noodles.
