how funny, i made pork chop just last night:
- boneless pork chop
marinated overnight with soy sauce,toasted sesame oil,worcestershire sauce, chinese rice wine and garlic , I pan fried them 2 minutes on each side with the lid half covered then removed them and sprinkle the chops wiht brown sugar, pop in broiler for 3 mins each side to sear the fat and carmelize the sugar...

- rice ( adapted from Closet Cooking blog)
Heat pan with oil, add scaillion , ginger, garlic until fragrant
add white rice in heated pan to toast for few minutes then add water ( i added 2.5 part from rice amt) lower the flame and let it steam since this is cooked stove top it will cook faster then a steamer. When done , I fluffed rice and added a few drops of soy sauce and the chopped cilantro , lime juice and zest. I also heated a alittle longer for the crisp.


This was served with a roasted tomato - tomato sliced in half , in the oven to bake ( this should start before the pork and rice)

It was nice, the pork was tasty and tender with the roasted tomato and it's juice with ginger lime rice.......
a fried egg on top might be good too......oh my!

You're welcome, Lisa! Your pork chops also sound delish. You won't be surprised to hear that one of the adaptations I made to the Times recipe was brown sugar instead of white sugar. So much more flavor.

yes i agree brown sugar or honey?
is it weird to compliment a dish as "nice" ?
got it from Geoff, lately everything is "Nice" to him

Geoff said...

I've always been of the opinion that"nice" is a bit wishy-washy, unless said with great enthusiasm and slightly drawn-out to add emphasis. Like this:

"Niiiiiiiice"

lisha said...

thank you geoff! you are nice..

"Nice" is a british thing. I got used to it from hangin' with the brits back in the day. They also say food is "gorgeous". I personally wouldn't mind if Geoff called my food nice and gorgeous. On the other hand, I think Molly is yummy and delicious!
