People are often surprised to learn that Peruvian cuisine has a strong Chinese influence. A large Chinese immigrant community in Lima has given rise to a unique fusion of Incan, European and Asian cuisine called chifa cooking. Lomo saltado, a stir fry of beef and French fries over rice, is the ultimate example. I did not include the rice or French fry cooking time. Enjoy!
This isn't for the heat shy. My husband won't get within 3 feet of them but I find them addicting! You can always cut back on the cayenne of course but don't cut too much because they just wouldn't be the same. Marinating time not included.
Another recipe I found on MyGourmetConnection.com that sounds so good. Here is what is stated about the recipe: " These oven-roasted wings get plenty of flavor from a marinade of orange juice, soy sauce, sriracha and garlic. Serve by themselves, or with a little bit of sweet Thai chili sauce for dipping." Update 10/13/2013: I have now made these deliciously different wings and loved them. I still made a batch of baked buffalo wings for DH but I just ate these wings. The only change I made was to decrease the oven temp to 425 degrees, as mine seemed to be getting very caramelized/charring at 450.
I was at a friends house helping her cook a Moroccan meal, and she needed a side dish of baby red and white potatoes and some vegetables. What I came up with, with her, was this side dish. If you find that there some potatoes larger than others (and there were in the packages she bought), cut those in half.
We had bought some fresh Yakisoba noodles and my boyfriend sort of threw this recipe together. It turned out really well, especially since we like things rather spicy. I've made this with just the chili-garlic sauce and also with a mix of the chili black bean and black bean garlic sauce. Pick your favorite sauce or a combination that sounds good to you.
A very decant mashed potato that is not for the diet conscious. Recommend using Klondik gold potatoes which are a small buttery flavored potato that requires no peeling. Zaar would not take Klondik gold potatoes. Can use yukon gold but will need to cut them up as they are larger than the Klondik's.
This is sooo easy to make, and everyone thinks you spent a lot of time making it. The cooking technique is what really makes this recipe work so well. You'll probably end up using this technique a lot; I sure do. (I made Kittencal's Easy and Delicious Ranch-Parmesan Chicken this way and it was amazing.) OK, back to the recipe; I use only 1/2 as much butter as the original recipe called for but I am posting it exactly as I received it. I think 2 tablespoons butter is plenty but you judge for yourself. So, keep in mind that you can cut the fat considerably by reducing the butter. I also use regular 1 or 2% milk instead of half and half when that's all I have around. It always comes out delicious. You can use this recipe for pork chops, too.
