Chicken Ramen Stir-Fry

Hi guys, this recipe was posted some time back and wanted to re-post this, because I know have a video up on my channel.

This is one of my family favorites and something that I know you are going to love.  Ingredients are easy to find and it is quick to cook.

 

dsc_0099.jpg

1 lb. boneless chicken cut into strips

1 tbsp. oil total

1 cup of fresh pea pods

¼ cup of carrots thinly sliced

1-cup bean sprouts

½ cup soy sauce (or to taste)

2 tsp. sesame seed oil

1 tsp. oyster sauce

Steps:

Marinade the chick with 1 teaspoon each of soy and sesame seed oil and put in fridge for at least 30 minutes.

In a large wok or skillet, stir fry the chicken for 5 to 7 minutes until no longer pink and cook through.

While chicken is cooking you are going to want to start cooking the ramen noodles.  Set seasoning packs aside from the Ramen soup and use them for something later.

Cook the noodles according to package directions or slightly under.

Once the chicken is done remove from wok and start adding in the vegetables.  Cook these for 3 to 4 minutes, so they still have crispness to them.

Once ramen noodles are done drain them and then add them to the wok along with the cooked chicken.  Add in the remaining soy and sesame seed oil and give the stir-fry a good mix.

Serves 4 to 5

Note: the vegetables can be changed to what ever you like.  This is also great with fresh broccoli.

CrockPot Beef and Broccoli

Hi guys, this recipe I have posted in the past but I didn’t use a crockpot to cook it.  Also this recipe is something I created and tested to match the flavors I know I want my beef and broccoli to taste like.

This is a very easy recipe and great for work night dinners.  All I had to do when I came home from work was make some white rice that took about 5 minutes to make and then thicken the sauce on the beef and broccoli with a corn starch slurry.

At the time when I snapped these pics of the beef and broccoli my sauce did not thicken fully yet.  It needs to cook another 30 minutes once you put the slurry in along with the broccoli so yes the sauce does come out thicker.   I hope you try this recipe and let me know what you think and if you have your own beef and broccoli recipe.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs thin steak (cut into slices)
2 cups of fresh broccoli (cut into bit size pieces)
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup green onions
1 1/2 cup beef broth
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup water
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup oyster sauce
Cooked rice

Steps
In a bowl mix together the soy sauce, sesame seed oil, brown sugar, oyster sauce, beef broth, minced garlic and green onions and then give it a good stir.
Add the pieces of steak to the crockpot and then the sauce and coat the meat with it.   Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours if steak is thin.  If steak is thick cook on low for 5 hours.  30 minutes before it’s done mix together the water and cornstarch and pour into  crockpot and stir it in.   The sauce will begin to thicken.  Then add in the broccoli and cook it for the remainder of time.

Ingredients:

2 jalapeño peppers
2 medium size tomatoes
1 medium onion

Steps:
Dice the onion into small pieces along with the tomatoes.  Make sure to remove the seeds of the tomatoes.  These will cause the pico de Gallo to be watery.
Then dice up the jalapeño using gloves when doing so.  Remove seeds from jalapeño or if you like the heat keep some seeds in.

Put all ingredients into a bowl and give it a good mix.  Put in airtight container and keep in fridge for up to a week.
