MPM week 5

Last week was a yummy week - I got off track at the end of the week but sometimes ya need to be defiant.

A review from last week and a couple of recipes.

Sweet and Sour Pork

1 pound pork - cut into chunks
1 cup Bisquick
1 egg beaten

2 tablespoon corn starch
1/4 cup brown sugar
20 oz can chunk pineapple drained (save juice)
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons catsup
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Dip pork chunks in egg and then coat in Bisquick. Deep fry till golden brown.

Add pineapple juice and enough water to make 1 2/3 cup liquid

In a large pan combine the corn starch, brown sugar and pineapple/water mixture stir together, Mix in the vinegar,catsup and soy sauce, whisk together. It will start to change to a darker brown, Add in pineapple.
Serve over rice.

This was a recipe my mom made growing up. I loved it and have continued to make it for my little family.

Spicy Chicken Tacos.

3 chicken breast 
4 chicken tomato bullion cube 
a couple dashes tapatio - depends on how spicy you like it.
a couple dashes chili oil - once again depends on how spicy you like it.

Fill a large pot with water, Add in chicken breast and 3 bullion cubes, tapatio and chili oil. Cook until chicken done. Chop each chicken breast into small chunks and put back in pot and cook a little longer (about 5 mins) Drain all the cooking liquid. in a fry pan add a little veggie oil, 1 bullion cube and a couple more dashes of tapatio and chili oil. Fry for about 5 mins.

Serve on warm corn tortillas with your favorite taco topping. We enjoy ours with - ranch or sour cream, cheese, tomatoes and avocado.

I got this recipe from a friend who was dating a Mexican guy. She made these for him all the time. I love them. So do the people I make them for. You got to try them.
