I have become burned out on cooking the same old stuff all the time and even my kids have started asking to try new foods. A couple weeks agos I tried my hand at making homemade Hibachi style Chicken and Fried Rice and it was a hit. So I thought I would try to some more recipes that are similar at home and I must say that I was terrified that I would mess things up completely. Since it was not a epic fail instead a triumph I am sharing my recipes with you and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
Ingredients for Pork & Veggies:
2 1/2 pound pork roast
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup honey (I use raw honey)
1 Tbsp Lemon juice (I used fresh juice)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 carrots, peeled, then sliced into thin round pieces
2 Tbsp corn starch
Ingredients for Veggies:
1 large zucchini, cut lengthwise, then in half and into bite-sized pieces
1 yellow squash, cut lengthwise, then in half and into bite-sized pieces
4 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp soy sauce
Directions for Pork:
Place your pork roast in your crockpot. In a medium sized bowl combine the garlic, honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and corn starch. Then pour over the pork roast. Add your carrot slices. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on High for 4 hours. Once your meat is cooked shred it and then serve over fried rice.
Directions for Veggies:
Place 4 Tbsp butter into a large frying pan over medium/high heat. Add your veggies to the pan. Add 3 Tbsp soy sauce, and a dash of salt and pepper. Saute the vegetables until they are tender.. Place the cooked veggies in a bowl and cover with aluminium foil to keep warm so you can re-use your pan for the fried rice.
Ingredients for Fried Rice:
1 1/2 cups cooked white rice (follow directions on box)
4 Tbsp Butter
4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
Directions for Fried Rice:
Place 4 Tbsp butter into the large frying pan over medium/high heat you used for the veggies or you can use a clean one. Pour your cooked rice into the pan with the butter and add your soy sauce. Once everything is combined scoot all the rice to one side and scramble your eggs on the other side of the pan. Once your eggs are scrambled combine with your rice.
