Pizza, Sandwiches & Wraps
My kids are huge fans of BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, so I experimented and came up with an Asian version. I use homemade pickled vegetables in these sandwiches, reminiscent of Vietnamese Sandwiches and Sriracha Mayo to give it a little kick. Feel free to omit the Sriracha. This recipe can be made in a slow cooker or pressure cooker, so no need to babysit a pot on the stove.
A nice change from the usual pizza. Quick with ready made ingredients.
This is a simple sandwich that my kids love in the summer, to celebrate the flavors of barbeque without actually grilling. Cooking time takes a few hours, but if planned ahead, an easy meal that requires minimal effort. If started 3 hours ahead of time, you may even start with frozen pork, as I often do. I also like this recipe, because it doesn't require any meat cutting. A large cut of pork, the way I get it from the store, works very well for this dish. You may also use a crockpot if preferred.
A tasty spiced beef taco filling with lots of fresh topping ideas.
Curry Chicken Pot Pie is a twist on the traditional Pot Pie. It can be made with any type of meat or vegetarian curry, as long as it is not too runny. It is easiest when there are leftovers to use as a filling. Feel free to use any of your favorite curries - Indian Curry, Thai Curry or Malaysian Curry just to name a couple.
An American Asian fusion dish - perfect for a lunch or snack.
Currywurst is a popular fast food in Germany. It is usually comprised of tomato sauce, bratwurst and curry powder. In my version, I add some mushrooms and onions to round out the flavors to be part of a sandwich. Great as a lunch or a picnic.
My kids love MaPo Tofu. They love the saucy tofu dish over rice. I have always enjoyed Gochujang. So I decided to put the two together. Gochujang MaPo Tofu has a sweeter flavor than original MaPo Tofu. It tastes great over warm steam rice. I've added fish sauce as part of this dish to add more dimension to the sauce. I haven't tried it myself, but I think it will work well as part of a lettuce wrap.
Home made fish tacos with an Asian twist, when time permits.
This is a great recipe to make if you have leftovers of Hot Mango Chutney Chicken, or if you have leftover store bought roast chicken.
This pizza is a quick meal if starting out with store bought rotisserie chicken and store bought tikka masala sauce. Feel free to use leftover Tikka Masala dishes, either home made or take out. Great for a weeknight meal.
This sandwich is a great hot sandwich. It is spicy, as most Jerks are, but layered with sweet red peppers and sweet red onions.
This is a a great idea for leftover Korean BBQ Pork. Using a store bought barbecue sauce and baking the meat makes this dish quick on preparation.
A good friend of mine gave me this idea for a hearty breakfast. Thanks Alison! Easy, nutritious and the kids love it!
This is a quick and easy meal, great for a quick lunch. It works very well if using leftover Paprika Lime Pork for the quesadilla filling. In this picture, I added leftover mash potato to please my little customers. However this recipe works just as well with only Paprika Lime Pork and cheese as filling.
Quick and delicious fish tacos, with an Asian twist, great for a weeknight meal.
A different way to serve sausages with bread from the traditional hot dog. Perfect when you have more people to feed than number of sausages on hand.
Spicy Curry Hummus brings the delightful flavors of Indian Curry and Hot Peppers to Greek Hummus. My family really enjoys this as a spread or as a Hummus dip.
This recipe combines Korean Style Jap Chae and Spicy Cucumber Salad in a Vietnamese style Fresh Spring Roll. It's a quick meal idea if using leftovers of Jap Chae and Spicy Cucumber Salad. It makes a wonderful light meal or snack. It can be prepared ahead of time for picnic.
