East meets West in the restaurant version of Chinese Black Pepper Steak. There’s no doubt that this dish is a popular restaurant item and for good reason. First of all, it’s all about the beef with only an accent of familiar veggies for balance. That gives it a great appeal for many diners.
I’m pretty wild about my Quick Corn & Bell Pepper Maque Choux, and I hope you’ll be, too. It’s got to be the perfect end of summer dish; a great transition into the heavier, comfort foods of fall.
I’m always getting great ideas from the grocery deli. I don’t necessarily buy, but def use them for inspiration. For me that’s almost better because not only can I usually make something similar at home, like this Spicy Thai Noodle Salad cheaper, I can customize to my taste and any dietary needs, too.
Every now and then I have to break out with an Asian dish. I don’t know what it is, but I’ll just be trying to do my thing, following my weekly menu plan and something will “spark me.” That’s how I think of it when I get one of these inspiration/craving kind of things! I see the bottle of soy sauce, maybe there was a commercial on tv or a pic in a magazine, or maybe I just drove by an Asian restaurant…honestly, it doesn’t take much to get me to want to make something, and that’s why I made Beef Chow Fun – Gon Chow Ngau Ho.
