Grocery shopping. The Cat returns tomorrow. The Mouse restocked the fresh fruits and vegetables. And picked up a little dinner.

Cheap Eats

Pastele stew, brown rice, steamed veggies, and corn. 🙂

Pastele stew, pork stew with olives and bell peppers. The Mouse likes the grocery store version, not as “intense” as other “authentic” versions. Sigh. The Mouse is just a wimp. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

One Pot

 

Pork Chop

Thought they’d be easier (and faster) to cook that pork belly.

Parboiled, washed, boned, cut into cubes. Washed pot.

Carrot, Okinawan Sweet Potato

Peeled and cut.

Hard Apple Cider

 

Himalayan Pink Salt

Picked up cheap at the neighborhood discounter store. I know, we currently have access to Kaua‘i sea salt, but, try try.

Brown pork, add small amount of water, drops of apple cider vinegar, braise, add carrots, add hard cider, add sweet potato, add salt. braise more, about an hour.

It’s been a bit of awhile since I’ve used the Martha (our cast iron slow pot). The usual suspect (pig foot). A slight riff on the “classic”.

Normal prep. Par-boil food, rinse and separate pieces, into the Martha with dried shiitake, brown ale, ginger, vinegar. Slow simmer for seven to eight hours.

Brown Ale Braised Pig Foot

Wasn’t trying to make soup, although there is a bit of soup. Aiming more toward meat for The Cat’s home bento. Not sure if the soup jelled, will check later.

As a preview, The Cat’s dinner last night.

Enjoy. Eat well.

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

Sliced Pork Belly

From the Korean grocery store.

Turnips

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

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.
