One Pot …

Back to a one pot dish (skipped a couple of weeks), some for The Mouse’s dinner, some for The Cat’s lunch. Keeping it simple.

Sliced Pork Belly

From the Korean grocery store.

Turnips

Again from you know where.

Blanched Pork Belly, Kimchi

Blanched Pork Belly, Kimchi

The Cat says turnips and pork is a classic combination in Chinese cooking.

Turnips, pork belly, red miso, gojujang (from my Bibimbap lunch), leaf kimchi (just a little bit), water, soju.

Low temp simmer.

Turnip and Pork Belly Stew, Miso and Gojujang Flavor

First day taste was a little “interesting”. Today, the flavors mellowed and combined. Yes!

Bowl of rice, stew (with gravy). Perfect.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Kinda scary, “children of the night” begin to come out.

Tried a chicken dish couple of months ago at a banquet at Golden Palace in Chinatown. The Cat was impressed. Went back last night for a revisit.

Da Place

Da Place

Some parts of Chinatown is going through a revitalization. Hip and trendy restaurants and bars are opening up attracting the younger crowds. Not at this restaurant and not at the location. But … maybe for the food?

The chicken from the banquet was a special order. Boo! Boss lady offered something similar using free range chicken.

The Chicken

The Chicken

Not sure the cooking nor the seasoning method. Not bad. The Mouse’s pet peeve with Chinese chefs is their fowl carving “modus operandi” – chop and hack (The Cat doesn’t mind, The Mouse on the other hand …). Chicken had good taste, just hard to maneuver around the bones.

The Cat and The Mouse do not live by chicken alone.

Added a “casserole”.

Pig Feet Cassorole

Pig Feet Casserole

Again, pretty tasty, could’ve cooked a little longer for The Mouse’s taste. Overall, not bad, the gravy was awesome.

And a vegetable.

Chinese Broccoli with Garlic

Tempted to order a noodle dish, but with the gravy and all, plain white rice instead.

Steamed Rice

Dishes were “on the bone” more us The Cat’s alley.

The Mouse had to satisfy his sweet tooth after dinner.

Would we go back? Probably, but maybe next time wear hazmat suits and assault vests (I’m exaggerating of course). Uhm, maybe.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Got home too late last night.

Still incorporating more greens. Yesterday, with a little help from my current favorite smoked purveyor, Pipikaula and Pickles.

Lunch.

Caesar Salad

Co-worker going on maternity and office brought in lunch for a send off.

A little addition to the salad.

Smoked Pork

A little leftover from home. Since the salad wasn’t going to hold The Mouse for the day.

Not bacon, but very close. Hee hee.

Dinner was more cleaning out the refrig.

Cabbage

Using a little stockpiled corned beef (from the freezer).

Also bringing a container of garlic chili paste, sriracha sauce, green onions, and firm and soft tofu. Figured it was easier to cook at the office than try to haul a pot of stew to work.

Wish me luck. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
