My husband is Chinese and I am Western. Between the two of us we came up with this recipe for fried rice that is actually a meal in a bowl. I can do this dish in well under half an hour, and that includes all the chopping. This dish is good for colds, depression, writer's block, stubbed toes, insomnia, heartbreak, religious crises and general crankiness. It can change your life. Yum.
'It takes only a few minutes to brown the meat before assembling this savory meal,' assures Connie Slocum from Brunswick, Georgia. 'The pork chops simmer all day in a flavorful sauce until they're tender.'
You can also fry up red tomatoes with this recipe but make sure they are not over ripe or they will be mushy. Serve these tomatoes outside with a glass of iced tea one summer night and enjoy the sunset with someone you love.
'I've been the chief cook ever since I moved in with my father, says Judy Yackey of Kalispell, Montana. 'With its crispy coating, this southern specialty is his favorite meal. He loves it with mashed potatoes.'
A great way to use up some of the extra kale you might have in your garden! You can use other similar greens in this recipe - spinach, mustard greens, and arugula will all work. A mixture of greens is also quite good. Serve as a salad, as a side dish, or as a main dish with rice.
