Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings

It was apparently National Chicken Wing Day on July 29th. Coincidentally on that day, I took out the wings from the freezer to thaw for that night's dinner. I was just glad to be celebrating wings day on its National day, sort of. I made the usual Hot wings and also made something new which I remember reading about before. Honey-Sriracha wings. I'm a Texas Pete and Tobasco kind of girl when it comes to ...

Chicken In Crunchy Peanut Butter Sauce

I got a craving for peanut butter the other day at the same time I was thinking about what to make for dinner. The idea of a chicken and peanut butter combo appealed to me. A recipe from Connie of Casa Veneracion looked delicious so I decided to adapt it with only a little bit of spicy flavor.   Recipe: Chicken In Peanut Butter Sauce Ingredients 5-6 chicken pieces(legs, thighs 3 tbsp of oil 1 onion, chopped 3 cloves of ginger, peeled ...

Red Chunky Pork & Potatoes Curry

I am calling this RED Chunky Pork & Potatoes Curry because compared to all the curry dishes I have made before, either pork or chicken, this one is well, red. Maybe I should name it tomato-based pork and potatoes curry instead but RED sounds cooler, HAH! In any case, this was really good if I say so myself. The smell of curry permeating the house while it's simmering is definitely something to get used to. You ...

Pork Bulgogi Tacos

If someone would ask me to name 2 Korean dishes that I love, easily I'd say kimchi and bulgogi. The spiciest the better, especially kimchi. The pork bulgogi I made for tonight's dinner doesn't have the spicy flavor that I really love because I wanted my son to enjoy dinner too without drinking a gallon of water by the end of the night, hah. To continue my light dinner plans, instead of rice, I decided ...

Pork & Kimchi Stir-Fry

My husband spent a year in Korea a few years back through his career in the Army. He would always tell me stories about the food that he tasted while over there. One of the most famous food Korea is known for is kimchi. They have all sorts of kimichi dishes there in Korea. Kimchi is not just eaten as a side dish. Sometimes people would incorporate kimchi into meat items to create a dish ...

Curry Shrimp & Green Beans Stir-Fry

Now here's a shrimp version of the curry pork & green beans stir-fry dish. This Curry Shrimp & Green Beans Stir-Fry is just as easy to make just the pork version. If you want to make a chicken version of the dish, why not? I'm sure it will be good too.   Print Curry Shrimp & Green Beans Stir-Fry : Feistycook : Dinner, Lunch : 2   ...

Pork, Broccoli, & Green Pepper W/ Peanut Butter Sauce Stir-Fry

While my family thought of yummy crunchy peanut butter sandwiches, I thought of a yummy crunchy peanut butter sauce for a pork stir-fry. Yeah, somewhere, somehow, our thought wavelength didn't meet in the middle which happens quite often. Someday, there will be a place for us, but obviously not on the day we bought the jar of crunchy peanut butter. Anyhoooo....Most recipes with peanut butter that I've read about use the creamy peanut butter ...

Spicy Brown Mustard & Duck Sauce Chicken

The brown mustard and duck sauce combination to marinate the chicken is just another one of my experimentation in the kitchen. I like to do that a lot just to see how the flavors will come out. Fortunately for my family's sake, most of my marinades turn out really delish. I have a few more packets of the duck sauce which I raved about last month in the Chicken In Soy Lemon & Duck Sauce recipe  so ...

Chicken Wings Curry With Peas & Potatoes

This is the chicken wings curry that I've mentioned back in May when I went on a curry-cooking spree. It's 3 months in the making but hey, it's here now, HAHA! By the way, in case you are wondering why it took this long, it's because I have a video of it but I can't seem to find the motivation to edit/shorten/convert/upload the video. So I've decided to post this now while it's still 2011 ...

Pork Green Beans and Eggplant Curry Stir-Fry

The original plan was to make a zucchini and yellow squash stir-fry but then I saw the eggplants and since I really didn't have a concrete dish that I wanted to make it with I decided to cook 'em with green beans instead. I figured I'd let my son taste eggplants since he'd never had any at all. The verdict? Well, the dinner went fine. No major fight occurred to eat his vegetables so that ...

Mojito Pork Satay

I've used Mojito in london broil, chicken, and flank steak but never in pork which is quite a surprise coz I prefer pork over any of other meat. I finally had the chance to introduce Mojito to pork a couple of days ago via these pork satay. I used 1 bottle of the 2 Bacardi Mojito bottles left from a 6-pack that I bought last weekend. Cooking with Mojito had always given me great results so ...

Curry Pork & Potatoes W/ Saffron

I just realized that I became a Curry fiend back in February. I made Curry Pork Tofu and Bok Choy, followed up by Curry Pork & Green Beans Stir-Fry, then the Grilled Curry Pork Chops, and Curry Chicken Wings. I actually have a video of the curry chicken wings and I haven't had time to edit it so I'd post that some other time. Since it's grilling season, I've actually made Grilled BBQ-Curry Chicken ...

Grilled Curry Pork Chops

This is the main dish that was accompanied by the sautéed cabbage & bacon side dish. Nothing too complicated, just a combination of ingredients as the marinade, then thrown in the grill because the weather was so nice for grilling, in February. INGREDIENTS: 4 pork chops 1/2 cup of soy sauce 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce juice of 1 lemon wedge less than a tsp of curry paste sprinkle of black pepper Combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon, curry paste, and black ...

Curry Pork & Green Beans Stir-Fry

This is soooo yummy for a quick lunch or even dinner if you're a very busy person who's craving for a curry dish. INGREDIENTS: 1 pork steak, cubed 1 sm onion, chopped 3 cloves of garlic, chopped 1 tomato, sliced in thin strips few pieces of pickled ginger, chopped (*fresh ginger is ok too) a bunch of ...

Curry Pork Tofu and Bok Choy

I made this Curry Pork Tofu and Bok choy dish to go along with the leftover steak and peas fried rice. This was actually inspired by the curry pork and green beans dish I made for lunch early last week. I'll post it some other time. I loved it so much I decided to make a slightly different version with tofu and bok choy. INGREDIENTS: 1 pork steak, cubed 1 sm onion, chopped 3 cloves of garlic, chopped 1 ...

Beef Hoisin Satay

The weather is perfect today. So appropriately perfect for a summer grill. It’s not as authentic as the real satay wherein turmeric powder is a must in traditional satay recipes to give it that yellow color. Let’s just call this Beef Satay ala Dexie. INGREDIENTS: beef tenderloin, cut in strips 10-15 skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes before using 1 thumb of ginger, peeled and grated 3 cloves of garlic, minced 3/4 cup of ...

    My husband and I love Kimchi. Having spent a year in Korea while serving in the Army back in 2003, my husband had tasted the best Kimchi. He said people there eat so much of it and they also have different dishes where kimchi is incorporated into the dish inself instead of just being on the side when meals are served. One particular dish he keeps talking about is the combination ...
