Chopsuey is a Chinese dish that is so common to Filipino homes. If I think about it, it’s basically a stir-fried dish with a variety of vegetables, meat or shrimps, and sometimes quail eggs. The sauce is thick and brown, but a lot blander than most stir-fry sauces. Continue reading “Rice Cooker Chopsuey”
My list of posts to write is getting longer every day. Cooking daily but not blogging daily? Not a good match!
If you don’t know pochero (alternate spellings include “puchero” or “putsero”)…I don’t either. All I actually remember from pochero was that it was made with chicken, tomato based sauce, and that it had banana. My mom does not cook pochero, or most of the tomato based dishes, for that matter.

Before I got into baking chicken breasts on weekends for our salads’ weekly supply, we used to make salads that didn’t have meat. The Filipino in me trying to find “ulam” in everything was craving meat; even tuna would have been better.

However, even though that’s an absolute breakfast favorite of mine, I feel guilty just frying spam and serving it with rice and egg. (Serve it with a side sauce of Mang Tomas. If you haven’t tried that yet, you should! We learned it from a friend a couple of years back.) Continue reading “Spammage”
I think I officially have a love affair with stir-fried vegetables.
My husband was away for training last week, not to mention numerous Christmas parties, and I was left at home to prepare lunch (and some dinners) for one. Being the lazy ass that I am, I have planned on one of these options: a) go out, run errands and eat out; b) have food delivered; or c) go processed!
I ended up going with Option A on some days, and C on other days. Yay junk food!
But somehow my inner self got quite guilty about all the salt and preservatives, so on the third solo lunch day, I rummaged through the crisper and convinced myself to prepare–at the least–a vegetable side dish. Continue reading “My New Super Easy Stir-fry Formula”
