    Lemongrass Chicken

    Fresh zest pops from the tender chicken as this easy to follow recipe adds yet another delicious meal to your rotation. Lemon grass and lime juice make for a delightful marinade that embeds their flavor profiles into the chicken. I absolutely love to pan sear a well seasoned meat to give the kitchen that home cooking atmosphere. Watching the steam escape the pan as the meat begins to braise fills me satisfaction knowing something good is about to get platted up. Garlic notes will dance harmoniously in the air on the way to the table and on your taste buds once you take your first mouth watering bite. This is a beginner friendly recipe that is awesome for teaching those growing teenagers how to cook a good meal and is also a great prep meal for the week.

    I love to partner this chicken with jasmine rice (or your favorite), fresh cut salad (with farm fresh tomatoes) and an egg (or two). The egg yolk mixed with the rice creates a balanced plate of textures and flavors and is pleasing to look at while you work your way through the meal.

            Teriyaki Steak Stir Fry

            A more traditional inspired teriyaki style stir fry this recipe packs sharp contrasting flavors with piquant notes that subtly wash away from the pallet when served with a delicious fresh warm rice. This sauce is not sticky or over powered with cheap shortcuts to sweeten some versions available for consideration. The flavors of this sauce are generated from one of the featured ingredients (name of Japanese sauce). The more times I tried to tweak this recipe the more times I found myself exploring the ranges of flavors that come from the use of too much or not enough of this (Japanese sauce). I found after a couple of interactions that the preferred amount to achieve elegance and style we all love in a gorgeous bowl of tender flavored steak slices dripping over a bed of fresh jasmine rice.

            Clean and trim fat from the steak. Slice the steak against the grain. Place the steak in a bowl.

            In a small bowl: combine sugar & soy sauce. Stir until the sugar dissolves then add mirin and sake as you continue to stir.

            Pour the sauce over the steak and turn the meat until well mixed. Let marinate for 30 minutes.

            Heat a pan up to medium-high. Add 2 tbsp oil and wait for 30 seconds. Add marinated steak only. Reserve the sauce. Stir continuously and cook for 3-4 minutes or until ~75% of the meat is medium to well done. Turn down the heat to medium.

            Meanwhile, mix cornstarch and water together. Stir until the cornstarch has completely dissolved. Pour the cornstarch mixture in the pan.

            Pour the reserved sauce in the pan.

            Mix and cook for 4-6 minutes or until the liquid has thickened and the steak soaks up most of the sauce.

            Serve with your favorite rice. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds & chopped green onions. Enjoy!
