Stir-Fried Beef with Five Spice, Hoisin Sauce & Vegetables Recipe  a1

Please forgive me. I have been posting a lot about stir fry recipes lately. That’s what happens when I stopped planning my blogging content and go with the flow. That’s so 80s of me!  I can only hope that you’re still with me on my stir fry journey.

I have been doing a lot traveling for the past few weekends which are normally used for planning my meals for the week. In the absence of meal planning, I resorted to what I do best and instinctively: stir fry.

The exciting part of trying a new recipe is to broaden my cooking skill and adding new flavours to my day-to-day meals.  You know, all the good stuff. But after enjoying the good, here is the down side: what am I going to do with leftover ingredients in excess of the recipe requirement? Well this happens to me sometimes.

I was left with some mince chicken and snow pea sprouts after making the delicious Vietnamese street food at home. Being the person who hates food wastage, I made full use of the leftover ingredients in my next dish – sweet and spicy chicken and snow pea sprouts with Gochujang (Korean hot bean paste).

I love having breakfast on the go. The truth is I am not a morning person and snoozing the alarm clock is kinda my forte in the morning haha!.  However, thanks to my Asian upbringing, I have this notion that “it is bad to eat while walking around” embedded deeply in my mind which explains the subconscious guilt I felt whenever I do so. Do you think this is true or it’s just an Asian thing? Just tell me it’s an Asian thing. *wink*
