Bourbon Pork!

Adapted from: Chinese Food Eye

Ingredients

  • 4-6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Orange Juice (Instead of 3 tablespoons bourbon whiskey and 2 tablespoon(s) ,white wine)
  • 2 cups Long Grain Rice

Directions

  1. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, finely chopped garlic, ginger, onion and orange juice (or whiskey and white wine) in a large bowl.

  2. Cook pork until browned. Add marinade and simmer on a low heat.

  3. Wash rice in a bowl. Then transfer to a pot and cook for 25 minutes or until soft. Add salt to rice whilst cooking if needed.

  4. Stir pork and use a fork to check if the pork is soft. Then taste to see if any extra seasoning needs to be added. Add a few drops of browning liquid and stir.

  5.  Serve the rice and pork on a plate and enjoy.

I used orange juice instead of whiskey and wine because I had no whiskey. It tasted really good though and would recommend the orange juice.

New Page Launch: Technology!

Hello,

So I’ve been thinking lately if I should create another page on my blog  dedicated for Food gadgets. I recently got a halogen oven and I love gadgets so I thought I should do a page about food gadgets to make people more aware of what’s out there. Some of the gadgets that I post will be available and affordable but some will be one of a kind, and probably impossible to find.

 

Hope you enjoy the page!

Just in time for Dessert!

Gu Chocolate Souffle(£3.29-Most leading supermarkets) and Asda Strawberry Cheesecake Ice cream(£2).

I was feeling a bit hungry and so decided to have a souffle that was in my fridge and since my favourite ice cream is strawberry cheesecake I decided to have the two together and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend it. I normally have haagen dazs strawberry cheesecake ice cream, but the Asda brand was ok.
