Vegetables

Ingredients:

1 Bunch of Fresh Green Beans

Approx. 4 Large Carrots Peeled and chopped into thick slivers

1 Can Baby Corn Drained

¼ Cup Soy Sauce mixed with 2 tsp Brown sugar

1 tsp minced Garlic

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp crushed onion flakes

2 Tbs. Sesame Seeds

Directions:

Cook Vegetables in boiling water the night before or when preparing the pot sticker filling. After blanched to your liking, refrigerate. When preparing dinner, in a wok on medium heat, coated with oil… heat garlic, red pepper, and onion flakes, add veggies and stir fry. Add soy sauce and warm through, toss with sesame seeds cooking for 2 minutes more and serve.

Sesame Noodles

Ingredients:

½ Package of cooked Linguine noodles

Peanut Sauce

½ package of Broccoli Slaw

Directions:

Toss together and serve.

Pot Stickers

Ingredients:

1 Extra Large Pork Chop chopped into large chunks

1 Chunk of Gingeroot, 1 Garlic Clove, 3 Tbs Soy Sauce, dash of sesame oil

½ Package of Broccoli Slaw

½ Package of Egg Roll Wrappers Any Size or Shape

Directions:

In blender or Food processor place Pork Chunks andother ingredients, pulse for a 4 or 5 pulses. Then add Broccoli slaw and let run for about 30 seconds. Marinate this mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or not!

On a clean work surface layout one egg roll wrapper and spoon mixture into center….Wet Edges with water.





Fold up sides to meet, and seal all edges… No fancy folding skills necessary. Just seal it up tight.





In a Non-stick Pan, coated with Olive oil over medium heat, place pot stickers in pan and cook until bottoms are golden, about 3 minutes. Add ¼ cup of water or stock and quickly cover with lid. Reduce heat slightly and cook for 6-8 minutes. Or until wrappers are translucent.

When done, uncover, place a plate on top and flip over, holding pan over sink for drainage. Serve with sauce.


Variations** Use any vegetables in Pot Stickers. Water chestnuts are a favorite. Use bottled Teriyaki or any other Asian inspired sauce. Coleslaw mix also works well. Chicken, shrimp or combinations of meats work as well. Ground meats can be substituted and probably would not need to be processed/blended. In the vegetable stir fry, I use vegetables that my son loves… but be inspired… use mushrooms, onions, water chestnuts, mung sprouts, pea pods, if you like; it will taste great in this dish! And the bottoms should not be as brown as in this photo! Most of this meal can be prepared ahead of time and thrown together at meal preparation!
