I was watching Rachael Ray the other day and she made a delicious looking `take-out`` meal - 5 Spice Pork Stir Fry. Unfortunately, I am the only person in the house with an adventurous palate (and I use that term lightly, I am not really that adventurous but compared to my family I am). My point being, if I make this recipe I would be the only one eating it. Luckily I can use my freezer containers to store the extra servings so that I can grab a quick `take-out`style meal from the freezer the next time I am in the mood.
I paired the stir fry with a classic recipe for MandarinFried Rice by Ming Tsai. I had never tried this recipe before but I was inspired to try it since I had just met Ming at a show in Chicago!
The rice was delicious, it made for quite a satisfying lunch!
Since I already had the rice frozen into portions, I just added the leftover Pork Stir Fry to it. This weekend, while the rest of my family dined on spaghetti and tomato sauce, I had a delicious ready made `take out meal`` right at home in the freezer. I just popped out 4 frozen portions, and while it heated in the microwave I sauteed some bok choy with garlic, ginger and peanut oil as a side dish. So yummy and much better for me then food from a restaurant which I am sure uses much more oil. Give these recipes a try tonight!
