I was touching bases with a number of BBQ blog sites early this morning and got myself all worked up looking at all the fantastic food pictures and reading up on their recipes. If you have never looked at Cowgirl's Country Life and HomesickTexan BBQ and food blog sites you are missing something. Just one look and it's like instant hunger. They are super talented and creative cooks, let me tell you. And, as I mentioned, I fell victim to the curse.
Well lucky for me I had some leftover bbq'd pork butt shish kabob chunks. So I decided I would stir fry it up with some vegetables that I had on hand.
Here is what I did...
This is how I slice the onions (stir fry fashion).
The garlic is minced but not too fine.
The carrot is juilienned about 2-3 inches long.
I like to use a wok for stir frying. That's what they're made for.
basic rib rub. I set the pork and carrots aside in another bowl.
basic rib rub. After the leaves soften just a little I add the rest of the ingredients and stir for about 1 minute over medium heat reducing some of the liquid. I add salt and black pepper to taste.
When I stir fry, I like to stir fry the ingredients separately so that I can control the taste and consistency of each one.
And here is the final product.
This is very quick and easy to make. You can adjust just about any ingredient you like to your individual taste. That's the beauty of stir fry. It really is just another method of cooking your leftovers.
I am sure you will like the overall flavor and that of the individual ingredients. With this recipe, no one individual ingredient overpowers the other.
Until next time....
