YUM. I have never had grits, but I think I know what they taste like.

How do you do your pork roast?

I haven't had cream corn in awhile... that is a nice side to comfort food meatloaf! Sliced tomatoes are a nice touch!

Brown rice has so many benefits that most Americans ignore.

Sorry, I don't write recipes, just procedures.

2 chicken breasts, sliced julienne
Onion, julienne
Green Pepper, julienne
Red Pepper, Julienne
Broccoli florets
garlic, minced
ginger, minced
Orange Juice
Cornstarch slurry
Sesame Oil
Crushed pistachios for garnish

Heat saute pan until drops of water evaporate immediately
add sesame oil and chicken strips quickly. Sesame oil will smoke very quickly.
Add onions, saute
Add peppers, saute
add aromatics, saute
add broccoli florets
Deglaze the pan OJ
Cover the pan to steam all vegetables
Slowly add cornstarch slurry to thicken sauce to desired consistency.
Reduce sauce by evaporation if needed.

Plate over Jasmine Brown Rice, garnish with pistachios.

Chef Todd Mohr
Sounds good! My BF loves orange chicken with rice..... and he eats brown rice!

SO worked me like a rented mule this weekend then we had the kids over for a cookout yesterday so tonight's dinner was a quickie.

We had a meal of sausage stuffed pasta I had bought from Costco topped with some homemade sauce out of the freezer.
