Tony’s stirfry and BSI recipe!

I had to work an hour late today.  I texted Tony to tell him I was on my way home, and he said “what do you want for dinner?”  I told him I had stirfry on the menu, and I walked in the door to this deliciousness!

I was going to use tofu, but steak was good too!

So Andrea is the hostess of this weeks Blogger Secret Ingredient Recipe Contest – the ingredient this week is Ginger!

When I explained my recipe to Tony and Hannah I think they both threw up in their mouth just a little bit.  Don’t worry!  I am taking it to work tomorrow to subject my co-workers to this amazing combination!

I don’t know what it is about ginger, but it kind of sticks to the back of my throat a bit.  My neighbor brought back ginger beer from his vacation over the summer, and I have that same feeling when I ate my dish.  I should say that I don’t think I have EVER done anything with ginger other than to shave some in stirfry!

Here are the ingredients I used:

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Place evaporated milk, lemon juice, oil, splenda, ginger and salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Mix well.  (can be stored in a jar in the fridge too!)

Salad

Combine salad greens, chicken, broccoli slaw, dried cranberries and almonds in a small bowl.  Add 2/3 cup of the  dressing and toss well.  Place 3/4 cup mixture on each tortilla and wrap tightly.

I love the new layout of WordPress!  I think its a lot more user friendly for someone like me who isn’t that technical!

Cannot believe tomorrow is Friday again already!  I have to be at work EARLY so it may be a late breakfast post tomorrow.   See you then!

    December 7, 2008 at 12:17 am When you'd like some tasty Ginger Beer to go with your dish, try Fentimans Botanically Brewed. It's made over 7 days starting by fermenting bruised ginger with sugar and yeast, then additional botanicals and water is added to bring the alcohol down below 1/2% so that it can be sold as a soda. The result is an amazing aroma and layers of flavour that you just can't get without this lengthy process. It's great all alone or as an ingredient for a Dark & Stormy, Moscow Mule or other mixed drink to complement your stir fry, salad wrap or other ginger inspired dish. Cheers!
